In this article we will discuss IPX, will make brief discussion on IPX, In last article we discuss about PLIP.

Internetwork Packet Exchange is the network layer protocol in the IPX/SPX protocol suite. IPX is derived from Xerox Network Systems’ IDP. It may act as a transport layer protocol as well.

IPX (Internetwork Packet Exchange) is a networking protocol from Novell that interconnects networks that use Novell’s NetWare clients and servers. IPX is a datagram or packet protocol.

IPX is a networking protocol originally used by the Novell NetWare operating system and later adopted by Windows. IPX was introduced in the 1980s and remained popular through the 1990s. Since then, it has largely been replaced by the standard TCP/IP protocol.

IPX/SPX (Internetwork Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet Exchange) (Linktionary term) IPX/SPX is the legacy internetworking protocol for Novell NetWare. It was derived from the XNS (Xerox Network System) protocol, which was developed in the 1970s.

IPX and SPX are networking protocols used initially on networks using the Novell NetWare operating systems, but became widely used on networks deploying Microsoft Windows LANS, as they replaced NetWare LANS.
