Description Evan Case 2000-04-03 15:11:57 EDT
IPX networking doesn't appear to function.
  Here are a few commands, and their various error messages
  (Copied from command line)

  [root@linux /sbin]# ./ipx_interface check eth0 802.2
  ./ipx_interface: socket: Invalid argument

  [root@linux /sbin]# ./ipx_configure --auto_interface=on
  ./ipx_configure: socket: Invalid argument

  [root@linux bin]# slist
  slist: Server not found (0x8847) in ncp_open

  [root@linux ecase]# ncpmount -S SERVER -U USER -V SYS /novell
  Logging into SERVER as USER
  ncpmount: Invalid argument when trying to find SERVER

  I used linuxconf to change the ipx settings from autoprobed to network
  That didn't work.
  IP networking does work.
  I had installed RH6.1, and was able to use IPX networking, and login to
  netware servers.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-04-03 15:13:59 EDT
Do you have the IPX module loaded?
Comment 2 Evan Case 2000-04-03 15:19:59 EDT
Yes. The socket error also appears during startup, in the init section with
green "OK"'s
Comment 3 Evan Case 2000-04-03 17:30:59 EDT
I installed 6.1 + formatted HDD's. IPX works (Slist lists all the netware
servers). When I upgraded (with installer) to 6.2 IPX fails. The socket error
appears right before the "bringing up interface eth0 [ ok ]".
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-04-03 17:35:59 EDT

'alias net-pf-4 ipx' to /etc/conf.modules.
