Install IPX protocol

MicroSoft has dropped the IPX protocol for Vista and Server 2008. You can still use it with XP/2000/Server 2003 etc..

Installing the IPX protocol...

Open 'My Computer', then 'control panel', then 'network and dial up connections', then 'local area connection', and finally click 'properties'. You should see the following screen-

LAN properties

In this example the NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol has been installed. If you can't find any mention of IPX then click the 'Install..' button. Highlight Protocol, then click 'Add.'. Select an IPX protocol, and press 'OK'. Not sure what the exact name will be, different names will be on different versions of windows. Anything that has IPX in it's name should do the trick. Keep a note of this, and make sure you pick the same protocol for other machines.

Click your IPX protocol then properties. You should get this window-

IPX/SPX

Make sure these values are identical for all the PCs that are running ESDi. It is important that the frame type is not automatic, select a particular one. e.g. Ethernet II
