  • IPX works at layer three of the Open Systems Interconnection model and SPX works at layer 4.
    • IP, IPX is connectionless and contains end-user data, such as IP addresses.
    • IPX/SPX is compatible with local area networks (LAN) or private networks and different communication protocol functions.
