Bridging IPX networks
Posted on 1998-09-22
I've set up a linux box with two network cards attached to two physically separate networks. Two kinds of prototcols run on these networks -- TCP/IP and IPX. I've successfully bridged the TCP/IP network using IP masquerade.. pings from one to the other work fine, without any setup.
What I want to do is the same with IPX. (One network is running netware 4.1, one running netware 4.11). Ideally the linux box isn't doing anything except bridging IPX packets, it isn't necessary for the Novell users to even know about the linux box -- I just want users of one network to see servers on the other one.
I'd appeciate any help. Caveat is that while I'm pretty good with TCP/IP, I know next to nothing about IPX.
