8 This is support for the Novell networking protocol, IPX, commonly
9 used for local networks of Windows machines. You need it if you
10 want to access Novell NetWare file or print servers using the Linux
11 Novell client ncpfs (available from
12 <ftp://platan.vc.cvut.cz/pub/linux/ncpfs/>) or from
13 within the Linux DOS emulator DOSEMU (read the DOSEMU-HOWTO,
14 available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>). In order
15 to do the former, you'll also have to say Y to "NCP file system
16 support", below.
18 IPX is similar in scope to IP, while SPX, which runs on top of IPX,
19 is similar to TCP. There is also experimental support for SPX in
20 Linux (see "SPX networking", below).
22 To turn your Linux box into a fully featured NetWare file server and
23 IPX router, say Y here and fetch either lwared from
24 <ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/system/network/daemons/> or
25 mars_nwe from <ftp://www.compu-art.de/mars_nwe/>. For more
26 information, read the IPX-HOWTO available from
27 <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
29 General information about how to connect Linux, Windows machines and
30 Macs is on the WWW at <http://www.eats.com/linux_mac_win.html>.
32 The IPX driver would enlarge your kernel by about 16 KB. To compile
33 this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ipx.
34 Unless you want to integrate your Linux box with a local Novell
35 network, say N.
37 config IPX_INTERN
38 bool "IPX: Full internal IPX network"
39 depends on IPX
40 ---help---
41 Every IPX network has an address that identifies it. Sometimes it is
42 useful to give an IPX "network" address to your Linux box as well
43 (for example if your box is acting as a file server for different
44 IPX networks: it will then be accessible from everywhere using the
45 same address). The way this is done is to create a virtual internal
46 "network" inside your box and to assign an IPX address to this
47 network. Say Y here if you want to do this; read the IPX-HOWTO at
48 <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto> for details.
50 The full internal IPX network enables you to allocate sockets on
51 different virtual nodes of the internal network. This is done by
52 evaluating the field sipx_node of the socket address given to the
53 bind call. So applications should always initialize the node field
54 to 0 when binding a socket on the primary network. In this case the
55 socket is assigned the default node that has been given to the
56 kernel when the internal network was created. By enabling the full
57 internal IPX network the cross-forwarding of packets targeted at
58 'special' sockets to sockets listening on the primary network is
59 disabled. This might break existing applications, especially RIP/SAP
60 daemons. A RIP/SAP daemon that works well with the full internal net
61 can be found on <ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/ncpfs/>.
63 If you don't know what you are doing, say N.
