3rd Party Carrier Switch 3750 - bringing back 5 differnet Vlans (layer2. ex 201,202,203,etc ) to the differnet locations of the same customer.
What i need to do is join all vlans together on a unique seperate layer2 vlan (ex.901)without routing?
I have the option of physically cross-patching the ports together but i didn't want to eat up 10 ports in the 3rd Party Carrier switch.
Is this possible? Any ideas would be appreciated. I look into several things like bridge-groups but couldn't find a clear example.
Like Rick, can't see an easy way to accomplish what you desire if all 5 VLANs are all tagged and crossing a trunk.
If you have control over the far side, if you can send one of the VLANs native (i.e. untagged), you might convince the receiving switch that two VLANs are the same VLAN; saving one cross patch.
Unsure whether a router will really assist assuming you really want to L2 bridge all 5 VLANs.
If you want to avoid using your 3750 ports, you might consider using the least expensive pure L2 switches to bridge the traffic together.
