NAME

ipx_cmd - bridge between Novell's SCMD driver and local IPX network  

SYNOPSIS

ipx_cmd -A server name [ -l local interface name ]  

DESCRIPTION

ipx_cmd moves packets from tapN to server and vice versa. It is something like IPX Tunnel, but it uses Novell Netware 5 server Compatibility Mode Driver (AKA Migration Agent) on the other end of wire. You must first configure your kernel tapN device with IPX EthernetII frame and with network number set up on server (you can use kernel autodetection).  

OPTIONS

-A server name
This is IP name of compatibility mode server. You can use DNS name or dotted quad to specify server address.
-l local interface name
This allows you to specify, which of your IP addresses should be used as IP address of client side of CMD driver. You must configure your tapN device with hardware address 7E:01:AA:BB:CC:DD, where AA:BB:CC:DD is your IP address in hexa.
 

EXAMPLE

If you are on server platan.vc.cvut.cz (147.32.240.81) and your migration agent runs on server boris.vc.cvut.cz, you can configure your system with:

insmod ethertap
ifconfig tap0 hw ether 7E:01:93:20:F0:51 up
ipx_interface add -p tap0 EtherII
ipx_cmd -A boris.vc.cvut.cz -l 147.32.240.81 &
 

BUGS

This program was written to satisfy my own needs and should be really improved. At least it should configure tap interface itself.
