I am working on basically the same problem..
We are using Linux for our "firewalls" (Uses firewall "machanics", like
FWTK and SOCKS but do not need that much IP security sounds like a
So, when we wanted to implement IPX between two of the systems with
Internet as the carrier I found a program called ipxtunnel that relays
ipx over IP using UDP.
This program runs on the "firewall" and it is initiated from the behind
We got all that working, but I feel that running IPX packages over the
net without any cryptation is a bit too dangerous (we also use it for
remote maintenance) so I am working on implementing DES to the stream.
But, my programming skills are a bit, ehh, rusty, so it takes some time
to do it. I am using the newdes2 package. Right now it compiles but won't
encrypt or decrypt properly..
ipxtunnel was made by Andreas Godzina and I have done a few patches to it
for making it work with a real novell connection.
This may be a solution for it..
