       ipx_interface adds, deletes, or displays IPX interfaces depending on the option selected.

       An IPX interface is the item to which IPX sockets are bound.  An IPX interface corresponds
       to an IPX Network Number which corresponds to a physical device and frame type.	A  sample
       IPX Interface would be:

       Network Number: 0x00ABCDEF

       Device: Eth0

       Frame Type: 802.2.

       There is a special IPX interface per host known as the PRIMARY or default interface.

       You  should specify node number only if you really know, what you are doing - on point-to-
       point devices, on loopback and on tap device if you are running Compatibility mode driver.

       add    This option is used to create an IPX interface.  If the -p flag is used, the inter-
	      face is made PRIMARY.  The network number can be optionally assigned.  If it is not
	      assigned, it is set to 0 which indicates it should be detected from the traffic  on
	      the network.

       del    This option is used to delete an IPX interface.

       delall This option is used to delete all IPX interfaces.

       check  This option is used to display the device, frame type, and network number of an IPX

       help   This option displays information about the utility.

       /proc/net/ipx_interface /proc/net/ipx_route

       This functionality really belongs in ifconfig(8).
