Description David Lawrence 2000-02-22 20:11:26 UTC
Something wrong with Alpha's and IPX in such that when you set a machine
up with mars-nwe on an Alpha, other clients on the network cannot see the
server. You can see yourself on the alpha box by using 'slist' but also
cannot see other netware (emulated or not) servers on the network. Doesn't
seem like any IPX packets are being place on the wire or being received.
Also this is difficult to do further checking due to the lack of IPX
utilities such as ipx-utils for the Alpha architecture.

fixed in rawhide with the removal of mars.
