We have installed redundant PRP-2 modules in a 12010 chassis and we were under the impression that the Ethernet ports (eth0, eth1 and eth2) could be used for routing purposes.
I have found documentation on the older PRP modules which states -
" The PRP Ethernet port does not provide external routing functions. Its primary roles are to act as a Telnet port into the router, and to boot or access Cisco IOS software images over a network to which the PRP Ethernet port is directly connected"
What I cannot find is any information on the capabilities of the Ethernet ports on the newer PRP-2 modules and what the difference is between the Eth2 port and the Eth1 and Eth0 ports (apaprt from being 10/100/1000 capable).
Any advice on this would be extremely useful.
