Cisco IOS Novell IPX Commands


Novell Internet Packet Exchange (IPX) is derived from the Xerox Network Systems (XNS) Internet Datagram Protocol (IDP). One major difference between the IPX and XNS protocols is that they do not always use the same Ethernet encapsulation format. A second difference is that IPX uses Novell's proprietary Service Advertising Protocol (SAP) to advertise special network services.

Our implementation of Novell's IPX protocol has been certified as providing full IPX device functionality.

Use the commands in this book to configure and monitor Novell IPX networks. For IPX configuration information and examples, see the Cisco IOS AppleTalk and Novell IPX Configuration Guide, Release 12.2.


Note For all commands that previously used the keyword novell, this keyword has been changed to ipx. You can still use the keyword novell in all commands.


access-list (IPX extended)


Note Effective with Cisco IOS Release 15.1(3)S, XE 3.4, and 15.2(2)T, the access-list (IPX extended) command is not supported in Cisco IOS software.


To define an extended Novell IPX access list, use the extended version of the access-list command in global configuration mode. To remove an extended access list, use the no form of this command.

protocol

Name or number of an IPX protocol type. This is sometimes referred to as the packet type. Table 8 in the "Usage Guidelines" section lists some IPX protocol names and numbers.

source-network

(Optional) Number of the network from which the packet is being sent. This is an eight-digit hexadecimal number that uniquely identifies a network cable segment. It can be a number in the range 1 to FFFFFFFE. A network number of -1 matches all networks.

You do not need to specify leading zeros in the network number; for example, for the network number 000000AA, you can enter AA.

.source-node

(Optional) Node on the source-network from which the packet is being sent. This is a 48-bit value represented by a dotted triplet of four-digit hexadecimal numbers (xxxx.xxxx.xxxx).

source-node-mask

(Optional) Mask to be applied to the source-node argument. This is a 48-bit value represented as a dotted triplet of four-digit hexadecimal numbers (xxxx.xxxx.xxxx). Place ones in the bit positions you want to mask.

source-network-mask.

(Optional) Mask to be applied to the source-network argument. This is an eight-digit hexadecimal mask. Place ones in the bit positions you want to mask.

The mask must immediately be followed by a period, which must in turn immediately be followed by the source-node-mask argument.

source-socket

(Optional) Socket name or number (hexadecimal) from which the packet is being sent. Table 9 in the "Usage Guidelines" section lists some IPX socket names and numbers.

destination.network

(Optional) Number of the network to which the packet is being sent. This is an eight-digit hexadecimal number that uniquely identifies a network cable segment. It can be a number in the range 1 to FFFFFFFE. A network number of -1 matches all networks.

You do not need to specify leading zeros in the network number. For example, for the network number 000000AA, you can enter AA.

.destination-node

(Optional) Node on destination-network to which the packet is being sent. This is a 48-bit value represented by a dotted triplet of four-digit hexadecimal numbers (xxxx.xxxx.xxxx).

destination-node-mask

(Optional) Mask to be applied to the destination-node argument. This is a 48-bit value represented as a dotted triplet of four-digit hexadecimal numbers (xxxx.xxxx.xxxx). Place ones in the bit positions you want to mask.

Usage Guidelines

Extended IPX access lists filter on protocol type. All other parameters are optional.

If a network mask is used, all other fields are required.

Use the dipx access-group command to assign an access list to an interface. You can apply only one extended or one standard access list to an interface. The access list filters all outgoing packets on the interface.


Note For some versions of NetWare, the protocol type field is not a reliable indicator of the type of packet encapsulated by the IPX header. In these cases, use the source and destination socket fields to make this determination. For additional information, contact Novell.


Table 8 lists some IPX protocol names and numbers. Table 9 lists some IPX socket names and numbers. For additional information about IPX protocol numbers and socket numbers, contact Novell.

To delete an extended access list, specify the minimum number of keywords and arguments needed to delete the proper access list. For example, to delete the entire access list, use the following command:

no access-list access-list-number

To delete the access list for a specific protocol, use the following command:

no access-list access-list-number {deny | permit} protocol

Examples

The following example denies access to all RIP packets from the RIP process socket on source network 1 that are destined for the RIP process socket on network 2. It permits all other traffic. This example uses protocol and socket names rather than hexadecimal numbers.

access-list  900  deny  -1 1 rip 2 rip
access-list  900  permit  -1
 
   

The following example permits type 2 packets from any socket from host 10.0000.0C01.5234 to access any sockets on any node on networks 1000 through 100F. It denies all other traffic (with an implicit deny all):


Note This type is chosen only as an example. The actual type to use depends on the specific application.

access-list (NLSP)


Note Effective with Cisco IOS Release 15.1(3)S, XE 3.4, and 15.2(2)T, the access-list (NLSP) command is not supported in Cisco IOS software.


To define an access list that denies or permits area addresses that summarize routes, use the NetWare Link-Services Protocol (NLSP) route aggregation version of the access-list command in global configuration mode. To remove an NLSP route aggregation access list, use the no form of this command.

access-list access-list-number {deny | permit} network network-mask [interface] [ticks ticks] [area-count area-count]

no access-list access-list-number {deny | permit} network network-mask [interface] [ticks ticks] [area-count area-count]

Syntax Description

access-list-number

Number of the access list. This is a number from 1200 to 1299.

deny

Denies redistribution of explicit routes if the conditions are matched. If you have enabled route summarization with route-aggregation command, the device redistributes an aggregated route instead.

permit

Permits redistribution of explicit routes if the conditions are matched.

network

Network number to summarize. An IPX network number is an eight-digit hexadecimal number that uniquely identifies a network cable segment. It can be a number in the range 1 to FFFFFFFE. A network number of 0 matches the local network. A network number of -1 matches all networks.

You do not need to specify leading zeros in the network number. For example, for the network number 000000AA, you can enter AA.

network-mask

Specifies the portion of the network address that is common to all addresses in the route summary. The high-order bits of network-mask must be contiguous Fs, while the low-order bits must be contiguous zeros (0). An arbitrary mix of Fs and 0s is not permitted.

interface

(Optional) Interface on which the access list should be applied to incoming updates.

ticks ticks

(Optional) Metric assigned to the route summary. The default is 1 tick.

area-count area-count

(Optional) Maximum number of NLSP areas to which the route summary can be redistributed. The default is 6 areas.

Usage Guidelines

Use the NLSP route aggregation access list in the following situations:

When redistributing from an Enhanced IGRP or RIP area into a new NLSP area.

Use the access list to instruct the device to redistribute an aggregated route instead of the explicit route. The access list also contains a "permit all" statement that instructs the device to redistribute explicit routes that are not subsumed by a route summary.

When redistributing from an NLSP version 1.0 area into an NLSP version 1.1 area, and vice versa.

From an NLSP version 1.0 area into an NLSP version 1.1 area, use the access list to instruct the device to redistribute an aggregated route instead of an explicit route and to redistribute explicit routes that are not subsumed by a route summary.

From an NLSP version 1.1 area into an NLSP version 1.0 area, use the access list to instruct the device to filter aggregated routes from passing into the NLSP version 1.0 areas and to redistribute explicit routes instead.


Note NLSP version 1.1 devices refer to devices that support the route aggregation feature, while NLSP version 1.0 devices refer to devices that do not.


Examples

The following example uses NLSP route aggregation access lists to redistribute routes learned from RIP to NLSP area1. Routes learned via RIP are redistributed into NLSP area1. Any routes learned via RIP that are subsumed by aaaa0000 ffff0000 are not redistributed. An address summary is generated instead.

Usage Guidelines

When configuring SAP filters for NetWare 3.11 and later servers, use the server's internal network and node number (the node number is always 0000.0000.0001) as its address in the access-list command. Do not use the network.node address of the particular interface board.

Table 10 lists some sample IPX SAP types. For more information about SAP types, contact Novell. Note that in the filter (specified by the service-type argument), we define a value of 0 to filter all SAP services. If, however, you receive a SAP packet with a SAP type of 0, this indicates an unknown service.

Usage Guidelines

You must configure at least one area address before NLSP will operate.

The area-address command defines a prefix that includes all networks in the area. This prefix allows a single route to an area address to substitute for a longer list of networks.

All networks on which NLSP is enabled must fall under the area address prefix. This configuration is for future compatibility. When Level 2 NLSP becomes available, the only route advertised for the area will be the area address prefix (the prefix represents all networks within the area).

All devices in an NLSP area must be configured with a common area address, or they will form separate areas. You can configure up to three area addresses on the device.

The area address must have zero bits in all bit positions where the mask has zero bits. The mask must consist of only left-justified contiguous one bits.

Examples

The following example defines an area address that includes networks AAAABBC0 through AAAABBDF:

area-address AAAABBC0 FFFFFFE0
 
   

The following example defines an area address that includes all networks:

area-address 0 0

Cisco IOS XE Release 3.4

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.

15.2(2)T

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

Specifying the clear ipx accounting command with no keywords copies the active database to the checkpoint database and clears all entries in the active database. When cleared, active database entries and static entries, such as those set by the ipx accounting-list command, are reset to zero. Dynamically found entries are deleted.

Any traffic that traverses the device after you issue the clear ipx accounting command is saved in the active database. Accounting information in the checkpoint database at that time reflects traffic prior to the most recent clear ipx accounting command.

You can also delete all entries in the active and checkpoint database by issuing the clear ipx accounting command twice in succession.

Examples

The following example first displays the contents of the active database before the contents are cleared. Then, the clear ipx accounting command clears all entries in the active database. As a result, the show ipx accounting command shows that there is no accounting information in the active database. Lastly, the show ipx accounting checkpoint command shows that the contents of the active database were copied to the checkpoint database when the clear ipx accounting command was issued.

15.2(2)T

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

Deleting all entries from the adjacency database forces all devices in the area to perform the shortest path first (SPF) calculation.

When you specify an NLSP tag, the device clears all NLSP adjacencies discovered by that NLSP process. An NLSP process is a device's databases working together to manage route information about an area. NLSP version 1.0 devices are always in the same area. Each device has its own adjacencies, link-state, and forwarding databases. These databases operate collectively as a single process to discover, select, and maintain route information about the area. NLSP version 1.1 devices that exist within a single area also use a single process.

NLSP version 1.1 devices that interconnect multiple areas use multiple processes to discover, select, and maintain route information about the areas they interconnect. These devices manage an adjacencies, link-state, and area address database for each area to which they attach. Collectively, these databases are still referred to as a process. The forwarding database is shared among processes within a device. The sharing of entries in the forwarding database is automatic when all processes interconnect NLSP version 1.1 areas.

Configure multiple NLSP processes when a device interconnects multiple NLSP areas.


Note NLSP version 1.1 devices refer to devices that support the route aggregation feature, while NLSP version 1.0 devices refer to devices that do not.


Examples

The following example deletes all NLSP adjacencies from the adjacency database:

clear ipx nlsp neighbors
 
   

The following example deletes the NLSP adjacencies for process area2:

Cisco IOS XE Release 3.4

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.

15.2(2)T

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

Generic filters control which data packets an interface receives or sends out based on the packet source and destination addresses, IPX protocol type, and source and destination socket numbers. You use the standard access-list and extended access-list commands to specify the filtering conditions.

You can apply only one input filter and one output filter per interface or subinterface.

When you do not specify an input (in) or output (out) filter in the command line, the default is an output filter.

You cannot configure an output filter on an interface where autonomous switching is already configured. Similarly, you cannot configure autonomous switching on an interface where an output filter is already present. You cannot configure an input filter on an interface if autonomous switching is already configured on any interface. Likewise, you cannot configure input filters if autonomous switching is already enabled on any interface.

Examples

The following example applies access list 801 to Ethernet interface 1. Because the command line does not specify an input filter or output filter with the keywords in or out, the software assumes that it is an output filter.

interface ethernet 1
 ipx access-group 801
 
   

The following example applies access list 901 to Ethernet interface 0. The access list is an input filter access list as specified by the keyword in.

interface ethernet 0
 ipx access-group 901 in
 
   

To remove the input access list filter in the previous example, you must specify the in keyword when you use the no form of the command. The following example correctly removes the access list:

interface ethernet 0
 no ipx access-group 901 in

Usage Guidelines

IPX accounting allows you to collect information about IPX packets and the number of bytes that are switched through the Cisco IOS software. You collect information based on the source and destination IPX address. IPX accounting tracks only IPX traffic that is routed out an interface on which IPX accounting is configured; it does not track traffic generated by or terminated at the device itself.

The Cisco IOS software maintains two accounting databases: an active database and a checkpoint database. The active database contains accounting data tracked until the database is cleared. When the active database is cleared, its contents are copied to the checkpoint database. Using these two databases together allows you to monitor both current traffic and traffic that has previously traversed the device.

IPX accounting statistics will be accurate even if IPX access lists are being used or if IPX fast switching is enabled. Enabling IPX accounting significantly decreases performance of a fast switched interface.

IPX accounting does not keep statistics if autonomous switching is enabled. In fact, IPX accounting is disabled if autonomous or SSE switching is enabled.

Examples

The following example enables IPX accounting on Ethernet interface 0:

interface ethernet 0
 ipx accounting

Usage Guidelines

The source and destination addresses of each IPX packet traversing the device are compared with the network numbers in the filter. If there is a match, accounting information about the IPX packet is entered into the active accounting database. If there is no match, the IPX packet is considered to be a transit packet and may be counted, depending on the setting of the ipx accounting-transits global configuration command.

Examples

The following example adds all networks with IPX network numbers beginning with 1 to the list of networks for which accounting information is kept:

ipx accounting-list 1 0000.0000.0000

Usage Guidelines

The accounting threshold defines the maximum number of entries (source and destination address pairs) that the software accumulates. The threshold is designed to prevent IPX accounting from consuming all available free memory. This level of memory consumption could occur in a device that is switching traffic for many hosts. To determine whether overflows have occurred, use the show ipx accounting EXEC command.

Examples

The following example sets the IPX accounting database threshold to 500 entries:

ipx accounting-threshold 500

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.

15.1(1)SY

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

If you specify the ipx advertise-default-route-only command, only a known default RIP route is advertised out the interface; no other networks will be advertised. If you have a large number of routes in the routing table, for example, on the order of 1000 routes, none of them will be advertised out the interface. However, if the default route is known, it will be advertised. Nodes on the interface can still reach any of the 1000 networks via the default route.

Specifying the ipx advertise-default-route-only command results in a significant reduction in CPU processing overhead when there are many routes and many interfaces. It also reduces the load on downstream devices.

This command applies only to RIP. Enhanced IGRP is not affected when you enable this command. It continues to advertise all routes that it knows about.


Note Not all devices recognize and support the default route. Use this command with caution if you are not sure if all devices in your network support the default route.


Examples

The following example enables the advertising of the default route only:

interface ethernet 1
 ipx network 1234
 ipx advertise-default-route-only 1234

Usage Guidelines

A directed broadcast is one with a network layer destination address of the form net.ffff.ffff.ffff. The ipx broadcast-fastswitching command permits the device to fast switch IPX directed broadcast packets. This may be useful in certain broadcast-based applications that rely on helpering.

Note that the device never uses autonomous switching for eligible directed broadcast packets, even if autonomous switching is enabled on the output interface. Also note that routing and service updates are always exempt from this treatment.

Usage Guidelines

The interpacket delay is the delay between the individual packets sent in a multiple-packet routing update. The ipx default-output-rip-delay command sets a default interpacket delay for all interfaces.

The system uses the delay specified by the ipx default-output-rip-delay command for periodic and triggered routing updates when no delay is set for periodic and triggered routing updates on an interface. When you set a delay for triggered routing updates, the system uses the delay specified by the ipx default-output-rip-delay command for only the periodic routing updates sent on all interfaces.

To set a delay for triggered routing updates, see the ipx triggered-rip-delay or ipx default-triggered-rip-delay commands.

Novell recommends a delay of 55 ms for compatibility with older and slower IPX machines. These machines may lose RIP updates because they process packets more slowly than the device sends them. The delay imposed by this command forces the router to pace its output to the slower-processing needs of these IPX machines.

The default delay on a NetWare 3.11 server is about 100 ms.

This command is also useful on limited bandwidth point-to-point links or X.25 and Frame Relay multipoint interfaces.

15.2(2)T

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

The interpacket delay is the delay between the individual packets sent in a multiple-packet routing update. A triggered routing update is one that the system sends in response to a "trigger" event, such as a request packet, interface up/down, route up/down, or server up/down.

The ipx default-triggered-rip-delay command sets the default interpacket delay for triggered routing updates sent on all interfaces. On a single interface, you can override this global default delay for triggered routing updates using the ipx triggered-rip-delay interface command.

The global default delay for triggered routing updates overrides the delay value set by the ipx output-rip-delay or ipx broadcast-fastswitching command for triggered routing updates.

If the delay value set by the ipx output-rip-delay or ipx broadcast-fastswitching command is high, then we strongly recommend a low delay value for triggered routing updates so that updates triggered by special events are sent in a more timely manner than periodic routing updates.

Novell recommends a delay of 55 ms for compatibility with older and slower IPX machines. These machines may lose RIP updates because they process packets more slowly than the device sends them. The delay imposed by this command forces the device to pace its output to the slower-processing needs of these IPX machines.

The default delay on a NetWare 3.11 server is approximately 100 ms.

When you do not set the interpacket delay for triggered routing updates, the system uses the delay specified by the ipx output-rip-delay or ipx broadcast-fastswitching command for both periodic and triggered routing updates.

When you use the no form of the ipx default-triggered-rip-delay command, the system uses the delay set by the ipx output-rip-delay or ipx broadcast-fastswitching command for triggered RIP updates, if set. Otherwise, the system uses the initial default delay as described in the "Defaults" section.

15.1(1)SY

Usage Guidelines

The interpacket delay is the delay between the individual packets sent in a multiple-packet SAP update. A triggered SAP update is one that the system sends in response to a "trigger" event, such as a request packet, interface up/down, route up/down, or server up/down.

The ipx default-triggered-sap-delay command sets the default interpacket delay for triggered SAP updates sent on all interfaces. On a single interface, you can override this global default delay for triggered updates using the ipx triggered-sap-delay interface command.

The global default delay for triggered updates overrides the delay value set by the ipx output-sap-delay or ipx default-output-sap-delay command for triggered updates.

If the delay value set by the ipx output-sap-delay or ipx default-output-sap-delay command is high, then we strongly recommend a low delay value for triggered updates so that updates triggered by special events are sent in a more timely manner than periodic updates.

Novell recommends a delay of 55 ms for compatibility with older and slower IPX servers. These servers may lose SAP updates because they process packets more slowly than the device sends them. The delay imposed by this command forces the device to pace its output to the slower-processing needs of these IPX servers.

The default delay on a NetWare 3.11 server is approximately 100 ms.

When you do not set the interpacket delay for triggered SAP updates, the system uses the delay specified by the ipx output-sap-delay or ipx default-output-sap-delay command for both periodic and triggered SAP updates.

When you use the no form of the ipx default-triggered-sap-delay command, the system uses the delay set by the ipx output-sap-delay or ipx default-output-sap-delay command for triggered SAP updates, if set. Otherwise, the system uses the initial default delay as described in the "Defaults" section.

This command is also useful on limited bandwidth point-to-point links, or X.25 and Frame Relay multipoint interfaces.

15.2(2)T

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

The ipx delay command sets the count used in the IPX RIP delay field, which is also known as the ticks field.

IPXWAN links determine their delay dynamically. If you do not specify the ipx delay command on an interface and you have not changed the interface delays with the interface delay interface configuration command, all LAN interfaces have a delay of 1 and all WAN interfaces have a delay of 6. The preferred method of adjusting delays is to use the ipx delay command, not the interface delay command. The show ipx interface EXEC command display only the delay value configured with the ipx delay command.

With IPXWAN, if you change the interface delay with the interface delay command, the ipx delay command uses that delay when calculating a delay to use. Also, when changing delays with IPXWAN, the changes affect only the link's calculated delay on the side considered to be the master.

Leaving the delay at its default value is sufficient for most interfaces.

Examples

The following example changes the delay for serial interface 0 to 10 ticks:

interface serial 0 
 ipx delay 10

Usage Guidelines

The ipx down command administratively shuts down the specified network. The network still exists in the configuration, but is not active. When shutting down, the network sends out update packets informing its neighbors that it is shutting down. This allows the neighboring systems to update their routing, SAP, and other tables without having to wait for routes and services learned via this network to time out.

To shut down an interface in a manner that is considerate of one's neighbor, use ipx down before using the shutdown command.

Examples

The following example administratively shuts down network AA on Ethernet interface 0:

interface ethernet 0 
 ipx down AA

Usage Guidelines

When split horizon is enabled, Enhanced IGRP SAP update and packets are not sent back to the same interface where the SAP is received from. This reduces the number of Enhanced IGRP packets on the network.

Split horizon blocks information about SAPs from being advertised by a device about any interface from which that information originated. Typically, this behavior optimizes communication among multiple devices, particularly when links are broken. However, with nonbroadcast networks, such as Frame Relay and SMDS, situations can arise for which this behavior is less than ideal. For these situations, you may wish to disable split horizon.


Note When the ipx sap-incremental split-horizon interface configuration command is configured, it takes precedence over the ipx eigrp-sap-split-horizon command.

The following example disables split horizon on the device:

15.2(2)T

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

You can configure an IPX network on any supported interface as long as all the networks on the same physical interface use a distinct encapsulation type. For example, you can configure up to four IPX networks on a single Ethernet cable because Ethernet supports four encapsulation types.

The interface processes only packets with the correct encapsulation and the correct network number. IPX networks that use other encapsulations can be present on the physical network. The only effect on the device is that it uses some processing time to examine packets to determine whether they have the correct encapsulation.


Note If you have not yet enabled IPX routing on the interface, you can save time by using the ipx network command, which allows you to enable IPX routing on the interface and select the encapsulation type in one command.


To determine the frame type of the server, use the config command at the prompt of the local server.

Table 11 describes the types of encapsulation available for specific interfaces.

15.1(1)SY

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

This command can be used in two modes: global configuration or interface configuration. In both modes, the command syntax is the same. A delay in responding to GNS requests might be imposed so that, in certain topologies, any local Novell IPX servers respond to the GNS requests before our software does. It is desirable to have these end-host server systems get their reply to the client before the device does because the client typically takes the first response, not the best response. In this case the best response is the one from the local server.

NetWare 2.x has a problem with dual-connected servers in parallel with a device. If you are using this version of NetWare, you should set a GNS delay. A value of 500 ms is recommended.

In situations in which servers are always located across devices from their clients, there is no need for a delay to be imposed.

Examples

The following example sets the delay in responding to GNS requests to 500 ms (0.5 seconds):

ipx gns-response-delay 500

Usage Guidelines

In the normal server selection process, requests for service are responded to with the most recently learned, closest server. If you enable the round-robin method, the Cisco IOS software maintains a list of the nearest servers eligible to provide specific services. It uses this list when responding to GNS requests. Responses to requests are distributed in a round-robin fashion across all active IPX interfaces on the device.

Eligible servers are those that satisfy the "nearest" requirement for a given request and that are not filtered either by a SAP filter or by a GNS filter.

Examples

The following example responds to GNS requests using a round-robin selection method from a list of eligible nearest servers:

ipx gns-round-robin

The default of 60 seconds applies only to low-speed, nonbroadcast, multiaccess (NBMA) media. Low speed is considered to be a rate of T1 or slower, as specified with the bandwidth interface configuration command. Note that for purposes of Enhanced IGRP, Frame Relay and SMDS networks may or may not be considered to be NBMA. These networks are considered NBMA if the interface has not been configured to use physical multicasting; otherwise they are considered not to be NBMA.

Examples

The following example changes the hello interval to 10 seconds:

interface ethernet 0
 ipx network 10
 ipx hello-interval eigrp 4 10

ipx helper-address


Note Effective with Cisco IOS Release 15.1(3)S, XE 3.4, and 15.2(2)T, the ipx helper-address command is not supported in Cisco IOS software.


To forward broadcast packets to a specified server, use the ipx helper-address command in interface configuration mode. To disable this function, use the no form of this command.

ipx helper-address network.node

no ipx helper-address network.node

Syntax Description

network

Network on which the target IPX server resides. This is an eight-digit hexadecimal number that uniquely identifies a network cable segment. It can be a number in the range 1 to FFFFFFFD. A network number of -1 indicates all-nets flooding. You do not need to specify leading zeros in the network number. For example, for the network number 000000AA, you can enter AA.

.node

Node number of the target Novell server. This is a 48-bit value represented by a dotted triplet of four-digit hexadecimal numbers (xxxx.xxxx.xxxx). A node number of FFFF.FFFF.FFFF matches all servers.

Usage Guidelines

Devices normally block all broadcast requests and do not forward them to other network segments. This is done to prevent the degradation of performance over the entire network. The ipx helper-address command allows broadcasts to be forwarded to other networks. This is useful when a network segment does not have an end-host capable of servicing a particular type of broadcast request. This command lets you forward the broadcasts to a server, network, or networks that can process them. Incoming unrecognized broadcast packets that match the access list created with the ipx helper-list command, if it is present, are forwarded.

You can specify multiple ipx helper-address commands on a given interface.

The Cisco IOS software supports all-networks flooded broadcasts (sometimes referred to as all-nets flooding). These are broadcast messages that are forwarded to all networks. To configure the all-nets flooding, define the IPX helper address for an interface as follows:

ipx helper-address -1.FFFF.FFFF.FFFF
 
   

On systems configured for IPX routing, this helper address is displayed as follows (via the show ipx interface command):

FFFFFFFF.FFFF.FFFF.FFFF 

Although our software takes care to keep broadcast traffic to a minimum, some duplication is unavoidable. When loops exist, all-nets flooding can propagate bursts of excess traffic that will eventually age out when the hop count reaches its limit (16 hops). Use all-nets flooding carefully and only when necessary. Note that you can apply additional restrictions by defining a helper list.

To forward type 20 packets to only those nodes specified by the ipx helper-address command, use the ipx helper-address command in conjunction with the ipx type-20-helpered global configuration command.

To forward type 20 packets to all nodes on the network, use the ipx type-20-propagation command. See the ipx type-20-propagation command for more information.

Examples

The following example forwards all-nets broadcasts on Ethernet interface 0 (except type 20 propagation packets) are forwarded to IPX server 00b4.23cd.110a on network bb:

interface ethernet 0 
 ipx helper-address bb.00b4.23cd.110a

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

The ipx helper-list command specifies an access list to use in forwarding broadcast packets. One use of this command is to prevent client nodes from discovering services they should not use.

Because the destination address of a broadcast packet is by definition the broadcast address, this command is useful only for filtering based on the source address of the broadcast packet.

The helper list, if present, is applied to both all-nets broadcast packets and type 20 propagation packets.

The helper list on the input interface is applied to packets before they are output via either the helper address or type 20 propagation packet mechanism.

Examples

The following example assigns access list 900 to Ethernet interface 0 to control broadcast traffic:

interface ethernet 0
 ipx helper-list 900

15.2(2)T

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

When an Enhanced IGRP route is lost, it is placed into a hold-down state for a period of time. The purpose of the hold-down state is to ensure the validity of any new routes for the same destination.

The amount of time a lost Enhanced IGRP route is placed in the hold-down state is configurable. Set the amount of time to a value longer than the default of 5 seconds if your network requires a longer time for the unreachable route information to propagate.

Examples

The following example changes the hold-down time for autonomous system from 4 to 45 seconds:

interface ethernet 0
 ipx network 10
 ipx hold-down eigrp 4 45

ipx hold-time eigrp


Note Effective with Cisco IOS Release 15.1(3)S, XE 3.4, and 15.2(2)T, the ipx hold-time eigrp command is not supported in Cisco IOS software.


To specify the length of time for which a neighbor should consider Enhanced IGRP hello packets valid, use the ipx hold-time eigrp command in interface configuration mode. To restore the default time, use the no form of this command.

ipx hold-time eigrp autonomous-system-number seconds

no ipx hold-time eigrp autonomous-system-number seconds

Syntax Description

autonomous-system-number

Enhanced IGRP autonomous system number. It can be a number from 1 to 65,535.

seconds

Hold time, in seconds. The hold time is advertised in hello packets and indicates to neighbors the length of time they should consider the sender valid. The default hold time is 15 seconds, which is three times the hello interval.


Defaults

For low-speed nonbroadcast, multiaccess (NBMA) networks: 180 seconds
For all other networks: 15 seconds

15.2(2)T

This command was modified. Support was removed for the Novell IPX protocol.


Usage Guidelines

If the current value for the hold time is less than two times the interval between hello packets, the hold time will be reset to three times the hello interval.

If a device does not receive a hello packet within the specified hold time, routes through the device are considered available.

Increasing the hold time delays route convergence across the network.

The default of 180 seconds applies only to low-speed NBMA media. Low speed is considered to be a rate of T1 or slower, as specified with the bandwidth interface configuration command.

Examples

The following example changes the hold time to 45 seconds:

interface ethernet 0
 ipx network 10
 ipx hold-time eigrp 4 45
