IPX Reliability

Hi. I'm having trouble coping files over the WAN using IPX as communication protocol, some times everything works fine put others the files doesn't copy complete. If I use TCP it always work's well, the problem is that the company were I work insist to use IPX and they think is a link problem. Is IPX reliable as TCP?

If your company continues to want to use IPX they are in a small minority since most companies have moved to IP networks (and even Novel moved their transport to IP in later releases). But as far as reliability is concerned IPX has a reliable transport and can be quite reliable like TCP.
