We need to make a couple of changes to our configuration and would appreciate any feedback on possible pitfalls.
The configuration is as follows:
2 x Cisco 1603 Routers on ethernet LANs linked via leased line.
Router 1 -
configured for Bridge IRB
Ethernet + Serial + BVI all in bridge-group 1
Ethernet - no IP address
BVI - 192.168.0.y
Admin only via console port or ISDN BRI0 incoming.
Router 2 -
Ethernet + Serial in bridge-group 1
Ethernet - 192.168.0.x
Admin via ethernet IP address
We need to achieve the following:
1. Change the IP addresses - that's OK but how is the BVI IP address actually used and what are the implications of changing it ?
2. Get admin via the local ethernet for router 1 if possible - will assigning an IP address interfere with the bridge operation.
