we need to temporary setup the ME3400 switch to interconnect the two sites. Could somebody tell me how to configure the ME3400 based on the attached network diagram. I only have one unit of the ME3400 switch loan from cisco.

system mtu 1546 ! Max for FE Interfaces

vlan dot1q tag native ! recommended for security

errdisable recovery cause l2ptguard ! if thresholds are set



switchport access vlan

switchport mode dot1q-tunnel


l2protocol-tunnel shutdown-threshold ! recomended for protection

l2protocol-tunnel drop-threshold !recommended for protection


Finally, if you set any of the port as Dot1q you must change the interface-type. This new in the ME series.

More details and configuration options are available at "Cisco ME 3400 Switch Software Configuration Guide"
