How do I make ipxping work?

Posted on 2001-06-06
Last Modified: 2010-03-18
I have a machine set up with RedHat 7.1.  I have IPX running.  I can see the interfaces.  When I use the ipxdump utility from the ipxutils rpm, I get IPX dumps.  The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to get the ipxping utility to work.  The rpm I downloaded is the ipxping-0.0-6.i386.rpm.  Every time I try to run the command, I get an error message thats says Network is unreachable.  Has anyone solved this?  I've searched the net.  The only thing I've been able to find is another person who is having the same problem.

see if you have the correct drivers installed. then go for a reboot.

try truss / sotruss on the command and see where it is gettting struck.
if it is in some getmsg() call well it could very well be your ipx driver problem.

happy debugging.

What are you trying to do? I use linux to mount my netware volumes and print to netware printers. It even shows up as a netware volume as mars-nwe is loaded. To mount netware only takes 2 commands
`ipx_configure --ipx_autoprimary=on --ipx_autointerface=on'
the above enables ipx
after that you could run `slist' to list netware servers
to mount a netware server do a `mkdir /mnt/novell'
then to mount the Netware volumes
`ncpmount -S [name of novell server] /mnt/novell -U [name of novell user with no password required] -n'
I have a small enough network I can get away with no password for the linux user. -n means no password. if you need passwords look up ncpmount syntax
