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:

Thanks! I'll take a look at it :)

Have a look at Kahn, too :)

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.

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.
