Re: IPX protocol support

The 2900XL, 2950, and 3500XL series switches and the are layer 2 Ethernet switches and will support any protocol that runs over Ethernet.

The 3550 is a multilayer switch and when a port is running as a layer 2 "switchport" it will also support any protocol that runs over Ethernet. As a layer 3 device, however, the 3550's will not route IPX traffic.
