atm header compression

Unanswered Question
Jul 10th, 2007

Hi all

I'm wondering if header compression is inherited by the subinterfaces for an atm interface as the command of ip tcp header-compression is not availible for the atm subinterface like that of a serial or frame relay interface.

How can i configure this?

There is no standard for header compression over ATM (aal5snap encapsulation), so I guess this is the reason it is not implemented.

However, if you was to run PPP over the ATM, I think you could use most of the header compression choices:

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

I was able to configuring header compression on the parent interface, would this be inherited by the subinterface?
