See also Ericsson IPX


Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) is the OSI-model Network layer protocol in the IPX/SPX protocol stack. The Open Systems Interconnection Basic Reference Model (OSI Reference Model or OSI Model for short) is a layered, abstract description for communications and computer network protocol design, developed as part of Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) initiative. ... The network layer is level three of the seven level OSI model. ... For other senses of this word, see protocol. ... IPX/SPX stands for Internetwork Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet Exchange. ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with communications protocol. ...


The IPX/SPX protocol stack is supported by Novell's NetWare network operating system. Because of Netware's popularity through the late 1980s into the mid 1990s, IPX became a popular internetworking protocol. Novell derived IPX from Xerox Network Services' IDP protocol. Novell was also the name of a road bicycle racing team. ... NetWare is a network operating system and the set of network protocols it uses to talk to client machines on the network. ... Network operating system (NOS): Software that (a) controls a network and its message (e. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ... For the band, see 1990s (band). ... Internetworking involves connecting two or more distinct computer networks together into an internetwork (often shortened to internet), using devices called routers to connect them together, to allow traffic to flow back and forth between them. ... Xerox network services (XNS) is a protocol stack which provided routing and packet delivery developed by Xerox at Xerox PARC in the later 1970s and early 1980s. ...


IPX usage is in general decline as the boom of the Internet has made TCP/IP nearly universal. Computers and networks can run multiple network protocols, so almost all IPX sites will be running TCP/IP as well to allow for Internet connectivity. It is also now possible to run Novell products without IPX, as they have supported both IPX and TCP/IP since NetWare reached version 5. The Internet protocol suite is the set of communications protocols that implement the protocol stack on which the Internet runs. ... In networking, a communications protocol or network protocol is the specification of a set of rules for a particular type of communication. ...


IPX addressing

  • Logical networks are assigned a unique 32-bit hexadecimal address in the range of 0x1 - 0xFFFFFFFE.
  • Hosts have a 48-bit node address which by default is set to the network interface card's MAC address. The node address is appended to the network address to create a unique identifier for the host on the network.

In mathematics and computer science, hexadecimal, base-16, or simply hex, is a numeral system with a radix, or base, of 16, usually written using the symbols 0–9 and A–F, or a–f. ... In computer networking a Media Access Control address (MAC address) or hardware address or adapter address is a quasi-unique identifier attached to most network adapters (NICs). ...

Similarities with IP

The IPX network address is conceptually identical to the network part of the IP address (the parts with netmask bits set to 1); the node address then has the same meaning as the bits of IP address with netmask bits set to 0. As the node address is usually identical to the MAC address of the network adapter, the Address Resolution Protocol is not needed. This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ... The word subnetwork has two related meanings. ... In computer networking, the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is the method for finding a hosts hardware address when only its network layer address is known. ...


For routing, the entries in the IPX routing table are similar to IP routing tables; routing is done by network address, and for each network address a network:node of the next router is specified in a similar fashion an IP address/netmask is specified in IP routing tables. It has been suggested that Routing protocol be merged into this article or section. ... This article describes routing in computer networks, a method of finding paths from origins to destinations, along which information can be passed. ...


IPX over Ethernet

IPX can be transmitted over Ethernet using one of the following 4 encapsulation types:

  • 802.3 (raw) is used in legacy systems and involves IPX data starting immediately after 802.3 frame header. The packet starts with Destination Ethernet Address (6 bytes), Source Ethernet Address (6 bytes), Frame Length (2 bytes) followed by IPX data. Latter always starts with two 0xFF bytes (Checksum field), and this can be used to differentiate this type of IPX encapsulation from next two types.
  • 802.2 (Novell) comprises 802.3 frame header (destination, source, length) followed by LLC header (3 bytes - 0xE0, 0xE0, 0x03) followed by IPX data. 0xE0 fields of LLC header stand for 'Novell' protocol.
  • 802.2 (SNAP) comprises 802.3 frame header, LLC header (3 bytes - 0xAA, 0xAA, 0x03), SNAP header (5 bytes - 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x81, 0x37) and IPX data. 0xAA fields of LLC header stand for 'SNAP' protocol. First three bytes of SNAP header are OUI followed by 2 bytes of IPX EtherType.
  • Ethernet II comprises Ethernet II frame header (Destination, Source, EtherType) followed by IPX data.

RFC 1420 (rfc1420) - SNMP over IPX (703 words)
This specification describes the mapping of SNMP onto the Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) protocol [2] used in Novell NetWare environments.
Mapping SNMP onto IPX Mapping SNMP onto IPX is straight-forward since IPX provides a datagram service very similar to that provided by IP/UDP.
Furthermore, this limit is the maximum packet length guaranteed to traverse IPX routers which do not provide fragmentation.
Linux IPX-HOWTO (9909 words)
IPX is similar in functionality to the IP protocol used by the tcp/ip community.
IPX clients are given this number by the server when starting, they only require to know the correct frame type.
IPX does not use the concept of subnetworking and so the sort of associations that you have between network addresses and networks is different.
