Re: Token Ring IPX routing in Linux

Thanks for the replies 

My Kernel is an unpatched 2.0.30

I went and gave the patch ibmtr_multiple_adapter_patch_v2_0_33 a go but I
got :-

Hmm...  Looks like a unified diff to me...
The text leading up to this was:
|diff -urN linux-2.0.33/Documentation/Configure.help

to do is show some ipx traffic by doing something trivial like a ipx ping
or run a game of descent ( Reg version ) across the router.

which one is??? I didn't assign any network addresses so are they made up
on the fly or else how would I explicitly create them?

Thanks Again
