       ipx_ticks - Configuration file for ipxd




       The  ipx_ticks  file contains the configuration information required by
       ipxd, the IPX RIP/SAP daemon.

       The RIP/SAP daemon can find out nearly all information it needs to  run
       properly  by  scanning the file /proc/net/ipx_interfaces, and by asking
       other routers and servers on the net. The only information it  can  not
       get  this  way is the time it takes to send a packet over the different
       interfaces. This information is required by the IPX RIP protocol. It is
       specified in so-called ticks, which is about 55 ms per tick.

       The  format  of  this file is very simple. On each line of the file the
       tick value for a physical interface is specified. The  first  field  is
       the  name  of the interface, and the ticks value follows after a white-
       space.  Empty lines as well as lines starting with ’#’ are  ignored.  A
       possible example is the following:

          # Tick values for IPX interfaces
          # device name    ticks value
          eth0             1
          ppp0             7

       The  default ticks value for devices not specified in /etc/ipx_ticks is
