IPX/SPX

Many games played in a multi-user mode (multiple game players playing each other) use Internetwork Packet eXchange (IPX).

The other half of the title is Sequence Packet eXchange (SPX). Most folks just call it IPX, but in the interest of being complete and accurate, we show both.

IPX is a pretty nice protocol, and was born from the early PARC days, which used Xerox Network System (XNS). A Network Operating System (NOS) company by the name of Novell hawked IPX as its choice for network transport protocol for years with its product Netware. When Version 5 of Netware was released, they left behind IPX for another choice, which may sound familiar, and is seen next.
