       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
       kernel autodetection).


       -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  (  and  your
       migration agent runs on server, you can configure your
       system with:

          insmod ethertap
          ifconfig tap0 hw ether 7E:01:93:20:F0:51 up
          ipx_interface add -p tap0 EtherII
          ipx_cmd -A -l &


       This  program  was written to satisfy my own needs and should be really
       improved.  At least it should configure tap interface itself.
