Older versions of libpcap/WinPcap might not support this; current versions support it.

Internetwork Packet eXchange (IPX)

Member of the NovellProtocolFamily.

XXX - add a brief IPX description here


XXX - add a brief description of IPX history

Protocol dependencies

  • ["LLC"]: Typically, IPX runs atop IEEE 802.2 ["LLC"] on LANs; it can also be transported atop ["PPP"].

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).


The IPX dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is) - XXX don't know.

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how IPX is dissected).

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Ethereal can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of IPX display filter fields can be found in the [ display filter reference]

  • Show only the IPX-based traffic:


Capture Filter

  • Capture IPX-based traffic only:


Older versions of libpcap/WinPcap might not support this; current versions support it.

  • add link to IPX specification and where to find additional info on the web about IPX
