AFAIK this sets ipx network 2 on ETHERNET_II framing, your server
is doing ETHERNET_802.2

To be sure of which network number you should use, type 'config'
on the netware console and look for the nic connected to the segment
your client is connected to.

FYI: you can use the -f option in netstat to filter a protocol (netstat -rnf ipx)
