I have set up a Linux box as a PPP server. First, I used TCP/IP to make
sure everything worked ok. Fortuneatly, it did. The TCP/IP traffic
was routed between my ethernet LAN and the PPP connection.
Now, I want to be able to do the same with the IPX protocol. However,
I have been running into some problems. The user can connect to my
Linux box using the IPX protocol, and I have the IPX protocol bound
to my eth0 interface (that's my primary interface). Here is my routing
table file after the ppp has been made.
Network router_net router_node
11111111 directly connected
11111110 directly connected
I have dilegently been reading the HOWTOs (IPX-HOWTO), FAQs,
Published Books, and Newsgroups to aid me in my new project, but
I still can't get it working. :(
Basically, I was wondering if it can be done. IPX-HOWTO says it
can, but I am losing faith in that document. I think my routing table
is messed up. ipxd was suppose to fix that, but i don't know what
it is doing. Can someone tell me how i could manually edit the
routing table? (i need the parameters for ipx_route)
PS Can you please send me a copy of your replies via email. Thanks.
