Re: %SYS-4-SUPERVISOR_ERR:Forwarding engine IPX too short withou

These messages indicate that the switch forwarding engine receives an IPX packet of a length that is less than the minimum allowed length and then drops the packet. In code earlier versions the forwarding engine silently drops the packet and counts the packet in the forwarding engine statistics. In later code this message is recorded in the syslog once every 30 minutes IIRC.

I could very well be a printer or other device on the network. A sniffer could reveal the source.
