debug ipx routing activity

What do you understand by 0×4 in the IOS response?
It stands for the Get Nearest Server response.

Which command can be used to monitor ipx traffic on a network?
show ipx traffic can be used for the same.

Which command is used to know the names of Novell servers?
show ipx servers is used for the same.

What are the default settings which can be changed by “ipx delay number” command?
one tick for LAN; six ticks for WAN

Which commands can help set an Ethernet interface on cisco router for both sap and novell ether encapsulations.
The commands used for this are
* interface ethernet 0.1ipx encapsulation Novell-ether ipx network 9e interface ethernet 0.2 ipx encapsulation sap ipx network 6c

What will the following command do “IPX maximum-paths 2?
This command will help load sharin on 2 paths if thes are metric paths.      * It enables load sharing on 2 paths if the paths are equal metric paths.

How can you enable both arp and snap encapsulation on one router interface?
THis can be done by assigning two network numbers one for each type of encapsulation.

How are service advertisements made to other networks.
These are forwarded every 60 seconds as each router makes its own SAP Table.
