SIB (Simple IPX Bridge) is able to tunnel IPX and IP frames received by your ethernet device via UDP over the Internet. It keeps track of the path MTU and splits frames if neccesary, can compress the frames via LZO, keep track of local MAC adresses, filter SMB over IPX to reduce traffic, is able to handle custom filters, and is easy to use. It is maintained and tested with 2.2 and 2.4 kernels, and can produce traffic statistics.

Release Notes: This release fixes the "divide by zero" bug on Alpha and the hostname resolver. There is a new option to set the local UDP port and a new option to bind to a specific local IP.
Release Notes: This release includes support for custom filters, implementation of MTU size autodiscovery and multi-packet frames, internal code changes, even more information in the README, and some directory cleaning.
Release Notes: Compression of compressable frames (marked via the control byte), which breaks compression compatibility with versions prior to 1.0h (see section "PROTOCOL" in the README), a fix for incorrect compression ratio calculation, removal of negative compression ratios, printing a warning when port 4000 is used (ICQ), README, QUICKSTART, and TODO updates, and a new COMPATIBILITY list.
