Chapter 3. IPX EIGRP

Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) supports three protocol families: IP, IPX, and AppleTalk. You saw all the details of IP EIGRP in Chapter 1, "EIGRP Concepts and Technology," and Chapter 2, "Advanced EIGRP Concepts, Data Structures, and Protocols," and you will get the same level of details on IPX EIGRP implementation in this chapter. All three EIGRP implementations share common algorithms, protocols, and packet formats. They also share a user interface (IOS show commands) and configuration commands as far as possible, making it easy for any network engineer familiar with one protocol family (for example, TCP/IP) to design and implement EIGRP networks for other protocol families (for example, IPX).
