IPX ROUTINGNETWORK

Configure IPX Routing: Masternet (Detroit)

IPX STATICROUTES

Assuming the router at Dallas supports triggered RIP over the WAN, it is not necessary to configure static routes. For our example, we will skip this configurable option.

If dallasnet did not support triggered RIP, you would then need to configure the appropriate static routes. You would follow theon-screenprompts, remembering that routes to both internal and external networks must usually be configured.

CONFIGURENETWARESTATICSERVICES

Assuming the router at Dallas supports triggered SAP over the WAN, it is not necessary to configure static services. For our example, we will skip this configurable option.

Similarly, configure static services if dallasnet did not support triggered SAP.

ROUTINGPROTOCOLS

To allow the sending of triggered RIP/SAP traffic back and forth to the Dallas site, we need to enable the RIP/SAP routing protocols. From the IPX Menu, selectRouting Protocols (Enable/Disable). Based upon the display, insure that both RIP processing and SAP processing are enabled. Follow theon-screeninstructions to make any necessary changes.

Note that you may also specify the size of table entries. For our example, we will skip this configuration since we will accept the default values for these options.

IPX SPOOFING

To avoid excessive ISDN connections, the CyberSWITCH uses spoofing and automatic filtering techniques. Both IPX and SPX Watchdog spoofing are enabled by default. For purposes of our example, we will keep these default settings.

TYPE20 PROTOCOL

This option pertains to certain protocol implementations such as NetBIOS. Since this implementation is not applicable to our example, we will leave this feature disabled.

ISOLATEDMODE

Since this implementation is not applicable to our example, we will leave this feature disabled.

TRIGGEREDRIP/SAP

From the IPX menu, selectIPX Triggered RIP/SAP. From the resulting screen, you may display WAN peer list information, or change the global RIP/SAP timer configuration. View the WAN peer list to assure thatdallasnet is properly listed. Skip past the global timer configuration, since we will accept the default values for this option.
