       ipx_cmd - bridge between Novell's SCMD driver and local IPX network


       ipx_cmd -A server name [ -l local interface name ]


       ipx_cmd  moves  packets  from  tapN  to  server  and vice versa.  It is something like IPX
       Tunnel, but it uses Novell Netware 5  server  Compatibility  Mode  Driver  (AKA  Migration
       Agent) on the other end of wire. You must first configure your kernel tapN device with IPX
       EthernetII  frame  and  with  network  number  set  up  on  server  (you  can  use  kernel


       -A server name
              This  is  IP name of compatibility mode server. You can use DNS name or dotted quad
              to specify server address.

       -l local interface name
              This allows you to specify, which of your IP addresses should be used as IP address
              of  client  side  of  CMD driver. You must configure your tapN device with hardware
              address 7E:01:AA:BB:CC:DD, where AA:BB:CC:DD is your IP address in hexa.


       If you are on server ( and your migration  agent  runs  on
       server, you can configure your system with:

          insmod ethertap
          ifconfig tap0 hw ether 7E:01:93:20:F0:51 up
          ipx_interface add -p tap0 EtherII
          ipx_cmd -A -l &


       This  program was written to satisfy my own needs and should be really improved.  At least
       it should configure tap interface itself.
