ADDREMOTELAN DEVICES

From the On-node Device Entries Menu, selectAdd. Enter the device name for the Tampa site, which istampabr. SelectAuthentication, and add the Tampa site’s PAP password, which istbpswd. Accept defaults forISDN andIPX information.

From the Device Table Menu, select Bridging. Enter theIPX Remote LAN Network Number of 0128, which is the external network number of the Remote LAN at the Tampa site. Be suremake calls field is disabled, since Remote LAN does not as yet support this feature.

Note: In our example, we could have also accepted the default option for the IPX Network Number, NONE, since the remote LAN has no servers locally attached to it. In this case, the Remote LAN’s network address would default to 0128, the external network number we will configure for theRemote LAN interface. For more details, refer to theConfiguring IPX chapter,Network Interface Background Information.
