IPX/SPX

IPX/SPX (which stands for Internetwork Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet Exchange) is a network protocol stack developed by Novell for use on networks running the Novell NetWare network operating system. Novell NetWare is a popular network operating system (NOS) that has provided file and print server functionality to LANs since the early 1980s (we will discuss Novell NetWare in Chapter 7).

Note

Novell NetWare was based on the XNS (Xerox Network Systems) network operating system that was created at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center in the 1970s.
