ipx_cmd - bridge between Novell's SCMD driver and local IPX network
[ -llocal interface name ]
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).
This is IP name of compatibility mode server. You can use DNS name or dotted
quad to specify server address.
-llocal 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.
If you are on server platan.vc.cvut.cz (22.214.171.124) and your
migration agent runs on server boris.vc.cvut.cz, you can configure
your system with:
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 126.96.36.199 &
This program was written to satisfy my own needs and should be really improved.
At least it should configure tap interface itself.
