Can Linux support IPX protocol for file sharing?


Hi,

I have setup a Linux Server with TCP/IP protocol initially. but there is one DOS software can only support IPX protocol, is that possible we can use IPX protocol for Linux File Sharing (SMB) ?
I was trying to use ipx_interface to create the ipx protocol, but when i delete all the tcp/ip and add the microsoft ipx compatible protocol in the win98 workstation, it cannot detect the server domain, anyone can help me on that?

from Darick

Hi

I will not be able answer your question exactly, but I am trying to do the same thing with red hat 9 and I am using nwserv.. This seems to be creating the RIP and SAP packets (when I check in Ethereal) but the client does not seen to find the FAKE novell server..

Hope this helps a little

Brent

Thumbs up

I got it to work

I am using Red Hat 9
I loaded the ipx module into the kernel ( insmod ipx)
I then changed the /etc/mars_nwe.conf file adding a password for the supervisor login
then ran nwserv

and it was complete!!
