SNA Switching through MetroEthernet

Unanswered Question
Jun 18th, 2007

Actual situation:

I have two Motorola Routers conected through Frame Relay Service. SNA Switching DLSW working perfectly.

That is all being replaced by Two Cisco Router (2811) connected through MetroEthernet Service. The SNA (DLSW) is not working the "dlsw circuits" does not establish, only the "dlsw peer" gets established.

?Where can i start checking? ?Router config? Im used to making Cisco Routers connect via Frame Relay where you have remote Branch Router and it connects to a Central Site Router where he pushes the MAC address on to the transaccional host work perfectly.

I apply the same logic on the Metro but it just doesn't establish.

?Is this a MetroEthernet type problem?

?What info can I post so that you can help me more?


I have this problem too.

Don't assume the problem is due to metro ethernet rather than frame-relay. Dlsw design and troubleshooting is kind of a specialized discipline in cisco networking. Can you ask the TAC to look over you config? They have a specialized team for that.
