Hi David,

From the "TSM for NetWare Using the Backup-Archive Client"


   The ipxserveraddress option specifies the IPX/SPX address
   of a server on an OS/2 or AIX host that is not in the same
   network as the client node. If the IPX/SPX address is not
   specified, the server must be in the same network as the
   client node.


   >>-IPXSErveraddress- server_address--------------------><



      Specifies a twenty-hexadecimal digit IPX/SPX address
      for a server. Pad each field with leading zeros if the
      value is shorter than the specified length. An IPX/SPX
      address is a concatenation of the following digits:

      - The first eight hexadecimal digits that identify the
        server network address.

      - The last twelve digits that identify the server node

      If an IPX/SPX address is not specified, the default
      address for the server is the same address as the
      client workstation.


   Options file:

      ipxse 0000000210005af6e7cc

   Command line:
