We have a centralized scanner, a Xerox 432ST. It works fine hooked up
to our 5.1 server - it communicates via what it calls "NDS (IPX)" - if I
try to get it to work on a pure IP server, e.g., one of my 6.5 servers,
it does not.

Xerox tells me it can work over FTP, or it can work over IPX. I have no
need for either protocol at this point - any thoughts on which is the
lesser of the two evils for this particular application?

Thanks in advance.
