Hi Experts ,

Below is the scenario.

(DMZ zone)--nortel FW-trunk link-4507R ---10Mb link----4507R.

Vlans 11,31,16 of DMZ network are configured on Nortel FW.trunk link is configured between Nortel Firewall and 4507 R switch allowing Vlan 11,31 and 16 so that servers can be connected on switch in respective Vlan's.

second 4507 R switch is present in differnet location and it is connected to 1'st 4507r(placed in differnet location) through 10 M

bps E0SDH link.

We want to extend the DMZ zone till the 2'nd 4507R switch so that servers connecting to this switch will be placed in DMZ zone for internet access.

what is the possible solution for this without creating trunk link between both the 4507R switches.

How to create GRE tunnel to entend the DMZ zone from Nortel Firewall to Second 4507R switch.

We tried creating GRE tunnel between FW and 2'nd 4507R switch but tunnel is not coming up.

Is there any go for this scenario.

Any possibility of creating GRE tunnel between Switches and pushing DMZ traffic through that tunnel.



I have this problem too.

Is 4507 your FW's Outside [untrusted] or DMZ? Can't we add another VLAN over 10Mb link between switches and the FW?
