Removing IPX off of routers and switches

Unanswered Question

I'm in a IP and IPX network environment. We don't have any more need of IPX on our servers. I want to remove IPX off of our routers. How can I do it? We have 3600 series routers and 4006 and 6500 Series switches. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advanced!

just configure no ipx routing in flobal configuration mode will remove all the ipx stuff on your router.

So after I run the no ipx routering, I remove the IPX entries from the startup-config file? Also what about the running-config? How do I check if IPX is running even after the change?

Thanks Jo, for you help in this matter.

no, after you configured no ipx routing in global configuration mode, you remove ipx routing from the running config only. All IPX traffic through the router will stop. You not have removed ipx routing from the startup config until now. You can now save the configuration with copy run start. Now you have also removed the ipx routing commands from the startup config.

To check if ipx is removed, you can enter show ipx route at the vommand line, and you will see somthing like IPX Protocol not running.

So it looks like that

Router#conf t

Router(config)#no ipx routing


Router#sh run <-- No more IPX in running cfg

Router#sh conf <-- Still IPX commands in startup cfg

Router#copy run start

Router#show conf <-- No more IPX in startup cfg

Router#show ipx route

Router#IPX not running ...

Just a thought - You might want to give your new settings a few hours or a day or so to make sure nothing drastic has happened before you save your running config. Just a small amount of caution might keep you out of a potentially bad situation. Of course it depends on the complexity and size of your organization.

goodluck - willfachi
