Linux IPX game server software???


Ok I don't know if this even exists, so this might be a stupid question...



Are there any software for making an IPX game server for games like Doom, C&C, Duke3d etc? It would be sorta like Kali I guess. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Yes there is, it's called "ipxtunnel". Check it out here:

Kahn is nice, but its client doesn't work with NT, 2000 or XP...

But then, for most machines, Doom, Duke or Descent
won't play sound under NT, 2000 or XP, either ...

And the more modern games that run smooth with
those <almost choking> operating systems
<deep breath> rely on TCP/IP, anyway.

Cheers,
Tink

Wow.. that's old

I miss IPX... days were simpler then.

Just out of curiousity, were you thinking 802.3... EthernetII... IPX_Snap... or one of the more obscure forms of IPX... It's why Netware died.. couldn't make up their mind.

Anyone used the Netware emulator on Linux? I have a minor networking problem that seems like it would actually work better with an IPX client than to deal with stupid-user issues.
