Displays and modifies information about the routing tables used by the IPX protocol. Used without parameters, ipxroute displays the default settings for packets that are sent to unknown, broadcast, and multicast addresses. For examples of how this command can be used, see Examples.

Syntax
ipxroute servers [/type=X]
ipxroute ripout <Network>
ipxroute resolve {guid | name} {GUID | <AdapterName>}
ipxroute board= N [def] [gbr] [mbr] [remove=xxxxxxxxxxxx]
ipxroute config
Parameters

 

Parameter Description

servers[ /type=X]

Displays the Service Access Point (SAP) table for the specified server type. X must be an integer. For example, /type=4 displays all file servers. If you do not specify /type, ipxroute servers displays all types of servers, listing them by server name.

ripout Network

Discovers if Network is reachable by consulting the IPX stack's route table and sending out a rip request if necessary. Network is the IPX network segment number.

resolve{ GUID| name} { GUID| AdapterName}

Resolves the name of the GUID to its friendly name, or the friendly name to its GUID.

board= N

Specifies the network adapter for which to query or set parameters.

def

Sends packets to the ALL ROUTES broadcast. If a packet is transmitted to a unique Media Access Card (MAC) address that is not in the source routing table, ipxroute sends the packet to the SINGLE ROUTES broadcast by default.

gbr

Sends packets to the ALL ROUTES broadcast. If a packet is transmitted to the broadcast address (FFFFFFFFFFFF), ipxroute sends the packet to the SINGLE ROUTES broadcast by default.

mbr

Sends packets to the ALL ROUTES broadcast. If a packet is transmitted to a multicast address (C000xxxxxxxx), ipxroute sends the packet to the SINGLE ROUTES broadcast by default.

remove= xxxxxxxxxxxx

Removes the given node address from the source routing table.

config

Displays information about all of the bindings for which IPX is configured.

/?

Displays help at the command prompt.
