Is it possible to run ipx with the 4402's and 1131 ap's

My current environment is 2 4402 controllers with 20 1131's Lwap

wlans work fine using WPA2/AES/802.1x/EAP-Fast using Cisco ACS v4. to external db Microsoft AD for creditionals.

My question, is it possible to get Ipx working, we have a large group that requires access to novell, unfortunately,

i've heard it is possible to enable ipx.

Any ideas..

thanks

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

I came across this WLC note;

Q. Does the Cisco 4400 Series WLC support Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) protocol? Does any Airespace product support IPX protocol?

A. No, IPX protocol is not supported on any platforms of the Cisco WLC.

From this good Q&A doc;

Hope this helps!

Rob,

Actually it is possible, i changed the ap mode from local to Hreap, then on my wlan config i checked Hreap local switching, now the client data stays local on the ipx enabled vlan while the control functions are still tunneled back to the controllers.

that was exactly what i needed to provide novell access to some users, i maintained

additional wlans that tunnel both control and client data back to the controllers, also the guest wlan "Lobby Ambassador" feature works well.
