IPX?

by CG IT In reply to Windows Vista and IPX/SPX

what game needs IPX?

No one uses IPX anymore. Heck Suse and Netware supports TCP/IP so IPX is like a dead protocol.

Go to Novell's website and download the Netware client for Vista

by ManiacMan In reply to Windows Vista and IPX/SPX

It will give you the option to install the IPX/SPX protocol stack, but your windows login screen will change because the Netware client changes the wingina file.

I'm trying to get the C&C series working on IPX as well, got the network adapter set up on one XP machine running NWLink IPX, and installed it on one vista machine following the instructions posted previously - http://www.starbase01.com/site/index.php?aid=87.

Problem is the vista one cant be configured with network numbers, and i dont actually know what to put in there cos i'm not an old fart.

Adapter network number should be equal on both machines right? like AAAAAAAA,
frame type ethernet II?
int. network no. 00000001 - 00000008?

Has anyone managed to get C&C working in IPX? seen so many people on the net with the same problem.
