ipx_cmd - bridge between Novell’s SCMD driver and local IPX network
ipx_cmd -A server name [ -l local interface name ]
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
-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.
If you are on server platan.vc.cvut.cz (126.96.36.199) and your
migration agent runs on server boris.vc.cvut.cz, you can configure your
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 188.8.131.52 &
This program was written to satisfy my own needs and should be really
improved. At least it should configure tap interface itself.
