Re: WXP losing connection (SBS6.01)

I can't seem to find where to change the frame type?

I'm at a disadvantage as I don't use IPX in my current network, and
haven't had to deal with in several years, so the details will be a
bit vague. On the server, if you previously run INETCFG, then load
INETCFG, go to Binding, IPX, and look at the settings. If you have
never used INETCFG on the server, look in autoexec.ncf. For the
client, look in Protocol Preferences in the client properties.

Re: WXP losing connection (SBS6.01)

On the client I looked in protocol preferences but I see nowhere to change
the frame type?

Russ,

Being that the IP and IPX protocols that run on Windows are developed by
Microsoft, you would find their settings in Windows Network properties and
not the Novell Client's.

Thanks for clearing that up Tony. It's been too long since I had to
deal with IPX.

Re: WXP losing connection (SBS6.01)

OK, I forced 802.2 to no avail. I then forced full duplex/100mbps to no
avail. Any other ideas?

Thanks.

Re: WXP losing connection (SBS6.01)

I've heard that these issue have also been related to the NIC's driver. So
you might consider updating or back revving whatever is in use.
What NIC and driver version are in that HP box?

Re: WXP losing connection (SBS6.01)

I'm not in front of the PC but it's a Broadcom 10/100/1000. The original
driver was dated 2003 and I updated the driver 2 weeks ago to the latest
from HP's site (April 2005, I forgot the version). It didn't help.

What if I added a new NIC? What about switching from IPX to IP? (the
server is running both)

Re: WXP losing connection (SBS6.01)

People have also reported success switching from one type of NIC to another.
IP is the way to go in general so I would definitely look into testing that
setup.
