I have a remote office connected via a new MPLS Circuit and the carrier gives us an bridged ethernet handoff.
We purchased an 871 Router that has 4 switchports and one WAN port. I want to use f0 port to connect to our 3COM POE phone/workstation switch.
Our main office router IP is 10.1.3.5 255.255.0.0
I configured the WAN port on this remote router to be 10.2.3.1 255.255.255.0 We use RIP2, and I could not get any advertisements across. I had IP Proxy arp enabled - and even configured the default static route to route to the FE4 (WAN) interface -and still cannot ping the 10.1.3 network from the clients or the remote router. I get dest net unreachable. I've tried enabling VLANS, BVI brides, Trunking the connection to the switch, etc.
Will this router work in my situation? Anything special I have to do? I can post the config - although I think it is currently off on the wrong track from all the stuff I've tried.
Thanks for any help!
