What is Get Nearest Server?

Get Nearest Server is a request packet sent by a client on an IPX network to locate the nearest active server of a particular type. An IPX network client issues a GNS request to solicit either a direct response from a connected server or a response from a router that tells it where on the inter-network the service can be located. GNS is part of the IPX SAP.
