        ipx_ticks - Configuration file for ipxd




        The  ipx_ticks  file contains the configuration information required by
        ipxd, the IPX RIP/SAP daemon.
        The RIP/SAP daemon can find out nearly all information it needs to  run
        properly  by  scanning the file /proc/net/ipx_interfaces, and by asking
        other routers and servers on the net. The only information it  can  not
        get  this  way is the time it takes to send a packet over the different
        interfaces. This information is required by the IPX RIP protocol. It is
        specified in so-called ticks, which is about 55 ms per tick.
        The  format  of  this file is very simple. On each line of the file the
        tick value for a physical interface is specified. The  first  field  is
        the  name  of the interface, and the ticks value follows after a white-
        space.  Empty lines as well as lines starting with ’#’ are  ignored.  A
        possible example is the following:
           # Tick values for IPX interfaces
           # device name    ticks value
           eth0             1
           ppp0             7
        The  default ticks value for devices not specified in /etc/ipx_ticks is
