(IPX) NetWare protocol similar to IP.
LAN communications protocol used to move data between server and workstation programs running on different network nodes.
A network protocol developed by Novell for its Netware product. It will hopefully be obsoleted by IP in the moderate-term future. Provides datagram (unreliable) delivery. See also Internetwork Datagram Protocol (IDP), User Datagram Protocol (UDP).
The address system of Novell networks. A protocol stack typically used on Novell networks. Useful for its simplicity of configuration, this protocol (in its current implementation) does not scale real well to large networks, for reasons touched on in the section "IP vs. IPX".
A networking protocol developed by Novell for use in Novel networks that allows signals to travel across the individual network segments which are connected by a common server. Usually used in conjunction with SPX.
The network-layer protocol from the Novell NetWare protocol stack.
A networking protocol used by the Novell NetWare operating systems and is a datagram (packet) protocol used for connectionless communications.
A routing protocol developed for Novell networks that is used in place of the Internet Protocol (IP) to manage communications access between network devices.
A Novell communication protocol that sends data packets to requested destinations (such as workstations and servers). The Microsoft NWLink protocol provides IPX support for Windows NTâ€“based networks.
A network protocol created by Novell to address packets of data from ultimate destination and source nodes located on a LAN networked with NetWare.
IPX. Internetwork Packet Exchange. NetWare network layer (Layer 3) protocol used for transferring data from servers to workstations. IPX is similar to IP and XNS.
The protocol in Novell NetWare that governs addressing and routing of packets within and between LANs.
Novell's protocol used by Netware. A router with IPX routing can interconnect LANs so that Novell Netware clients and servers can communicate. See also: Local Area Network.
The network protocol used to connect Novell's servers, or any workstation or router that implements IPX, with other workstations. Although similar to the Internet Protocol (IP), IPX uses different packet formats and terminology.
A network protocol native to NetWare that controls addressing and routing of packets within and between LANs. IPX does not guarantee that a message will be complete (no lost packets).
A communication protocol initially developed at XEROX Corporation and made popular by Novell Inc. IPX is "connectionless" which basically means there is no checking to see if the information that is sent out is ever received.
Novell's protocol used by Netware. A router with IPX routing caninterconnect LANs so that Novell Netware clients and servers cancommunicate. See also: Local Area Network. interoperability
