Cannot configure IPX on 2501 router (IOS 11.1(18))

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction here... I have a 2501 router (second-hand) with IOS 11.1 (18). When I try to configure any command containing the word IPX, I get an "invalid input at X" message. A "show ip?" privileged or "IP?" global config command does not list any IPX options. Similar results searching for help on "Novell".

I have searched the Cisco knowledge base, but everything tells me that IPX commands are available on this version of IOS. Am I missing something here, or is it possible that some versions of IOS prohibit IPX configuration?

Thanks for any replies!

Re: Cannot configure IPX on 2501 router (IOS 11.1(18))

Hi, just to be sure, what's the exact IOS image name?

It should look something like:

"igs-in-l.111-18.bin" (IOS with IP and IPX feature set)

"igs-inr-l.111-18.bin" (IOS with IP, IPX and IBM feature set)

"igs-j-l.111-18.bin" (IOS Enterprise version)

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your informative reply!

The file name in Flash is igs-i-1.111-18. I'm guessing that this particular version does not support IPX. I am going to search the knowledge base again to learn more about the filename identifiers, but it looks like I will have to obtain another image before using IPX.

Thanks again!
