TCP/IP to IPX?
jackdee344 Sep-17-01 05:08 PM
I was just wondering if theres anyway to change my TCP/IP network to an IPX network. Do I need to install some kind of software? I hear all these people on posts talking about how their Ethernet Card runs TCP/IP and IPX/SPX protocals, and I just wanna know how.

Simply install the IPX/SPX compatible protocol with Start, Settings, Control Panel, Network, Configuration, Add, Protocol, Add, Microsoft IPX/SPX-compatible Protocol, OK. It can be installed in addition to other protocols; however, additional protocols reduce performance. I would not install it unless it is required for a game or application. To avoid problems and complexity, do not install the Novell Client for Netware unless you have a Novell file server on your network or you have one of those rare applications that require it. I would use NetBEUI instead of IPX/SPX if file sharing cannot be accomplished with TCP/IP. TCP/IP is required for the Internet. For security reasons I would not bind (associate) IPX/SPX (or NetBEUI) to a network adapter that is used for the Internet connection unless it is needed. Larry
