Description jar 1999-09-08 07:42:38 UTC
1. When using linuxconf to configure IPX it sets the
IPXINTERNALNETNUM and IPXINTERNALNODENUM both to zero.
These cause /sbin/ipx_internal_net to complain about
illegal values.  Numbers greater than zero work.

2. In /etc/rc.d/init.d/network /sbin/ipx_internal_net is
called.  According to the IPX HOTWO it is recommended not
to run it.  It always becomes the primary interface, not
what you usually want.

3. In /etc/rc.d/init.d/network if you are using DHCP the
IPX ifup-ipx script does not run because the file
/etc/sysconfig/network is not sourced (it is only sourced).
(The 'if [ $IPX = yes ]' fails.)

thanks,
john
