IPX with RIP NWLink using FPNW on NT server

NT server, 2 LAN cards, 1 is Network #1 the other is Network #2.  Both work correctly.  IPX works correctly on network 1 and clients can log into network 2 but IPX signalling cannot be used on LAN 2.  It was suggested that RIP must be installed.  When RIP is installed and enabled and the server is rebooted the Event log says that it was unable to load RIP due to an 'incorrect parameter.'  The only 'parameter' I saw for the RIP service was enable or disable??

Seems like you installed IPX RIP from the NT setup CD and forgot to
replay the service pack.

Reinstall the service pack 3 or later, usually this will fix the problem.

Although I haven't put Triggy's answer 'to the test' as of yet, it does sound like it will work.  After all, isn't the answer to 90% of all tech support questions "re-install" or "re-boot"?? :-)  Seriously, this does sound like an extremely viable solution and, if you'd like, I'll be happy to let you know how it worked out.
