Unanswered Question
Mar 22nd, 2007


I just want to know about the importance of IPX in Cisco Exam of any level including CCIE as well as IPX real world deployment...? I am in touch with the cisco networking since last 1 and 1.5 years but i never faced IPX... so want some comments from experts...

should it be important to know IPX???

so is it worth to ask any IPX question to new candidate for cisco network engineer position in this IP networking world???



I have this problem too.

When I passed my CCNA back in 2003, there was still some IPX stuff, but I think that has disappeared since then. I never encountered IPX again (I also have CCNP/DA/DP/IP and passed the CCIE written).

Also, in the real world it's all but extinct (except if there are still some shops with old Novell servers).
