PIX and IPX/SPX

We have some internal links which have recently become part of an external organisation. I would like to connect them onto one of the interfaces on our PIX515, just one problem we have IPX/SPX running on the link. What normally happens in this situation?

Re: PIX and IPX/SPX

IPX does not pass directly through the PIX (IP only protocol stacks in the PIX). You can pass IPX traffic indirectly using a protocol such as GRE between two routers. The downside to that is that the PIX is not performing any security checks.

I had to setup a router inside and run GRE to a router outside to carry the IPX. Thankfully we moved all Novell to IP and that went away.

I am not concerned about security as I have control of a router that I can place access-lists, filters on.

I have not heard of GRE what do you need to do to get this to work?

Thanks
