Netgear Switches Disabling IPX

Hi

I am connecting to three separate subnets using the GSM7324 as the core switch with 2 x cisco 3600 switches to provide links to the other subnets,

I need to be able to disable IPX in this switch, I cannot find an option in the GUI or located in the Command line config?

Can anyone provide some info...?

I'm assuming you have IPX on the wire because you have an old version of NetWare from last century. Have you considered upgrading to a modern version of NetWare (at least v5.1) and thereby eliminating the need for IPX (NetWare has preferred TCP/IP since v5.0 was released in 1999)?

Of course, if you've got IPX on the wire for some other reason, then this comment is not applicable.

The GSM7324 doesn't route IPX in its layer 3 switching function, and it can't filter out IPX traffic at layer 2.  As it is, IPX traffic will be contained on each VLAN. Are you trying to filter out IPX at the switch entirely?

Thanks guys,

I had to create VLANS to allow the IPX broadcasts to be specifically denied

Was there any particular reason you accepted PsiCop's answer over mine? Just wondering.

Actually, I wonder about that too.

JKambour, you may not know this, but EE is essentially a database of solutions to problems. If my Comment wasn't really the solution, well, someone searching for an answer to their problem might get misled. And jasperomalley also didn't get the credit due him, if he was the one with the right answer.
