6509 & IPX

Has anyone ever experienced problems with IPX over th 6509? We're running EIGRP to route IPX and the age for all routes is really low, whcih I think indicates we don't have a very stable network. Any suggestions? Thanks, Lee.

hi Lee,

You should provide more information about the problem, we need atleast the version and model of supervisor and MSFC. I think you should open a case with TAC for better troubleshooting

Re: 6509 & IPX

What version Cat & MSFC software are you running? Is it the desktop IOS or the Enterprise IOS? We had a ton of IPX issues until we upgraded to the Enterprise IOS. IP worked fine and IPX worked intermittently. We opened a TAC case and Cisco verified we were running the desktop IOS on the switch and told us to upgrade to enterprise. Problem solved.

If is a supervisor engine II, please make sure you are on the latest software for both the MSFC and Supervisor.
