ipx = true | false
Enables / Disables IPX protocol under DOSBox
You can enable IPX later in the DOSBox command line with command:
ipx true
or disable it with command:
ipx false

Note, that the IPX feature of DOSBox does not connect to an existing IPX network,
it provides an UDP based emulation of such.

This means, one client has to start a server and let the others connect to it.
In a network with server and client, use the following commands on the console,
to set up IPX networking:

On server start the IPX server by typing:
ipxnet startserver

and on client type:
ipxnet connect server
server being the hostname of the machine, running the IPX server.

At this point, there is a tunneled IPX network between the two hosts.
Repeating the second step on another machine adds it to the network.
