Find TCP address from IPX address?

Find TCP address from IPX address?

is there any way to find out a computers tcp address from its ipx address? we're having a problem whereby a computer running with an admin account is for some reason locking a bunch of files randomly, so users cannot save newer versions.. we have to go to the novell server and disconnect the relevent entry in the console monitor. the monitor provides an ipx address for the computer, so ideally we'd like to find out which it is!

RE: Find TCP address from IPX address?

I'm sure the tools from will help you out with this one.  They have a 30 day eval of their full tool suite.  I liked it so much I went ahead and purchased the engineer tool set.  Download the suite and I'm sure it will at least point the IPX address to a mac address.  Once you find the mac address you should be able to pull up the IP Address.  I know this is pretty general but I'm not at work right now and don't have the specific tool names you would need to do this.  If you need further assistance with this let me know and I'll get you the specific tool names.

RE: Find TCP address from IPX address?

thanks for the info.. we actually discovered a way of sending messages to the machine, and had a hunt round for it in the end!

ill have to check out those tools though, could be useful in the future

RE: Find TCP address from IPX address?

Sorry I wasn't faster on the draw....I've found myself in the same position that you were in a time or two and had to find the solution on my own.  The IPX thread is not used very much any more so I occasionally miss any new calls in it.  

You should definitely check out those tools, they are really good at finding information concerning your network.  They are a little pricey but I think they are worth it, especially if you also deal with Cisco Routers, they have some really good Cisco tools there.  

Wish you the best..
