Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53968
initscripts-6.20-1 missing /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-ipx
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:23:34 EDT
Description of Problem:
After a clean installation of roswell, I was unable to get ipx networking working
when I specified a Frame type and network number via linuxconf or by hand
editting /etc/sysconfig/network and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
and turning IPXAUTOPRIMARY and IPXAUTOFRAME off.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure ipx networking to use a specified frame type and network
number using linuxconf or by hand editting /etc/sysconfig/network and
2. run /etc/init.d/network restart
3. run ncpmount -S SERVER dir
ncpmount: Cannot assign requested address when trying to find SERVER
a clean mount of the SERVER at dir
Copying /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-ipx from a RedHat linux 7.1
system where the mounting works to my system fixed the problem.
If IPXAUTOFRAME and IPXAUTOPRIMARY are on, then it will connect, but I
get a lot of error messages complaining about network collisions.
Fixed in a later initscripts.
