NLSP (NetWare Link Services Protocol)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
NLSP is a NetWare routing protocol that was developed by Novell for IPX (Internetwork Packet Exchange) internetworks and as a replacement for RIP (Routing Information Protocol). It is derived from IS-IS (Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System), the link-state routing protocol developed by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization). Routers running NLSP exchange information about network links, the cost of paths, IPX network numbers, and media types. They use this information to build routing tables.
