We studied the process $e^{+}e^{-} \rightarrow
t\bar{c}+c\bar{t}$ in a Rp-violating supersymmetric model with effects from both B- and L-violating interactions. The calculation shows that it is possible to either detect the Rp-violating signal at the Next Linear Collider or get more stringent constraints on the heavy-flavor $\rlap/R_{p}$ couplings. A comparison with results from $\gamma\gamma \rightarrow t\bar{c}+
c\bar{t}$ may allow one to distinguish between B- and L-violating interactions. For very clean background conditions and Rp-violating parameters close to the present limits, the future detection of B-violating interactions should be possible. The process of $\mu ^{+}
\mu ^{-}
\rightarrow t \bar{c}+c\bar{t}$ is also considered.
