Token Ring IPX routing in Linux


This maybe a newbie type question but I cant find any relevent
documentation anywhere!

Q. Is it possible to route the IPX that Win95 uses through a linux router
running ipxd (ver 7.0) -is a uptodate different version available?

the ethernet side uses the 802.3 frame type and it appears with its
address when I do an ifconfig
eth0  Link encap:10Mbps Ethernet  HWaddr 00:A0:C9:1C:28:CE
      inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
      IPX/Ethernet 802.3 addr:00000002:00A0C81C28CE
      UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1                   

Q. The tr0 side I start with the 802.2tr frame type. Is this correct ?
because no IPX stuff appears in ifconfig for the tr0 device.

And how do I manually enter the routes using ipx_route at the moment they
read like
Network    Router_Net   Router_Node
00000001   00000002     08005A837210
00000002   Directly     Connected 

Q. I have no idea what they are supposed to look like. Is there sample
examples out there?

Q. Finally will this ipxd run happily along side gated?

These may all be in an FAQ somewhere if it is please send it on.

Thanks in advance

PS. And yes I have RTFM and the Linux Token Ring mini-howto, IPX howto and
the comp.dcom.lans.token-ring FAQ
