Using the AS/400 as an IPX Router

An IBM Redbooks publication




Abstract

This IBM Redbooks publication will help you become familiar with and then configure AS /400 IPX router support. In addition to providing a configuration overview and configuration scenarios, the book includes
an overview of IPX and the other Novell NetWare protocol stack components.
The configuration scenarios included will prove useful as samples or
examples for those setting up the AS/400 IPX router support.
The example configurations cover:

. IPX routing between AS/400 LAN interfaces
. IPX routing between AS/400s via X.25 SVC, X.25 PVC or frame relay
. IPX routing between an AS/400 and an IBM 2210 Multiprotocol router via frame relay
. IPX routing between an AS/400 and a Novell Multiprotocol router via X.25 SVC or frame relay

As reference information the book also includes sample communications traces.
The book covers OS/400 V3R7 and V3R2 (the software releases at which the IPX router support was added).
