IPX/SPX?!? Gee, is it 1995 again?

Seriously, I think you are going to have to wait for Novell to release
one for Vista, because MS officially no longer supports it. Although I
wouldn't hold my breath, since Novell is all lost in Linux Land these
days.

Re: IPX/SPX-compatible for Vista

I'm making an assumption that with IPX/SPX you have a Novell NetWare
server you are trying to talk to.

If you are looking to communicate with any version of NetWare which
doesn't have native IP support (ie NW 5.0 and up), sorry -- that won't
happen.

Even when Novell releases a Client for Vista (and there is a 'tech
demonstration version which kind of sort of works), that client will
only work with NW 5.0 and above as it only supports TCPIP.

I would also like to find a solution for this. Therre are many games (i.e.
warcraft and starcraft) that use ipx/spx networking still.
Thanks

Hey Mike,

I'm in the same situation. I found this IPX implementation for Vista
http://www.starbase01.com/site/index...=22,87,0,0,1,0

Apparently it works with some games... it didn't work with my game (star
wars: episode I racer)

Ops major mistake, Vista equals Windoze Mastrubation Edition (ME) number
II :eek: ! Well no reason to keep things working and people being able
to capitalize on their (thousand $US) investment according to M$oft! As
it is the case for being able to write to the parallel port, access all
pre-usb developing boards and old GPIB cards for example!

Do yourself a favor and get Linux on you PC, fc8 installs as a charm in
anything nowadays! Then use "dosbox" with all you need for those
UNFORGETABLE games, even free gaming servers ;)!

Myself I got rid of both ME and VISTA & got a $100 rebate on both after
spending 30min on toll free calls, though both were pre-installed on two
laptops! :p

Next time consider buying a Mac, has all those (features) are just a
click away! :cool:
