IPX ROUTINGNETWORK

Configure IPX Routing: Masternet (Detroit)

CONFIGUREIPX ROUTING: MASTERNET(DETROIT)

Using the detailed instructions provided in the Simple Remote Bridging chapter, use the CFGEDIT program to configureResources andLines for the Detroit Master Network (masternet).

When complete, continue with the unique configuration elements for this IPX example. These include:

configuring appropriate devices,

configuring a Remote LAN Interface for the Orlando and Tampa sites, and

configuring RIP and SAP to communicate with the Dallas router

CONFIGUREDEVICES

First, we need to identify the devices to which masternet will connect. We need to configure an IPX WAN device for the Dallas site, and we need to configure Remote LAN devices for the Tampa and Orlando sites.

ADD IPX WAN DEVICE

Press 3 at the Security Menu, and the Device Level Database Menu will be displayed. To enable the On-nodeDevice Database, press 1 and follow theon-screeninstructions.

To add the remote devices, press 2 (On-node Device entries). Press 1 to configure the information for our first device, dallasnet. You will be prompted for the device name, followed by the Device Table Menu:

Device Name? dallasnet

After the new device name has been specified, a screen similar to the following is displayed.

9)Compression

Select function from above or <RET> for previous menu:

This menu provides various configuration options for the device dallasnet. For purposes of our example, we will provide the followingISDN andAuthentication information.

ISDN Information

From the Device Table Menu, select ISDN.

Accept the ISDN Line Protocol default value of PPP, as well as the default values for Base Data Rate and Initial Data Rate. However, increase the Maximum Data Rate to 256,000 (to use a maximum of

four calls/connections running in parallel). Configure a dial-out number for the Dallas site, which is: 912143339999. We will not use the remaining parameters (subaddress, profile name or HO support) for this example. Return to the Device ISDN menu (following), and then return to the Device Table Menu:

IPX Information

From the Device Table Menu, select IPX. From this configuration menu, insure thatIPX routing andMake calls for IPX data are enabled. You may then enable IPXWAN protocol:
