X25 Call , then file transfer

Unanswered Question
Jan 20th, 2009

Hi,

I have an x25 call established between two peers through PAD over XOT. Assuming that i would want a packet transfer to be exchanged between both these peers (two end hosts connected to routers). Can i achieve this through regular ftp?

Thanks!

I have this problem too.

Hello echelon,

Maybe what you need is X.25 and TCP/IP combination. I don't know if you are already using it. But, you can use the x25 link to pass your ftp traffic. Try this.

---R1

int s0

enc x25

x25 address 123456

x25 map ip 10.10.10.2 654321

ip address 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.252

!

ip route R2-SUBNET 10.10.10.2

---R2

int s0

enc x25

x25 address 654321

x25 map ip 10.10.10.1 123456

ip address 10.10.10.2 255.255.255.252

!

ip route R1-SUBNET 10.10.10.1

thank you for replying!

I have attached a diagram of what i'm trying to achieve.

Essentially, i would like to have X25 calls generated between WAN POP A and WAN POP B. Once that is verified working. I would like to have WAN POP B migrate to Core 2. This will help me validate impacts on X25 during migration.

I was hoping to accomplish this by first,setting up an FTP transfer between both X25 PEERs and have that running. Once that is active, i will initiate the migration.

Hi echelon,

I didn't understand the relation between the FTP and the X25 migratration. Can you provide more details?

thank you for taking the time to reply.

What i was hoping to achieve was

1) ensure an x25 call is active between both peers (i.e WAN POP A and B)

2) Ensure that there is packet transfer between both peers.

3) initiate the migration at the core end to see the effects it has on the x25 call/packet transfer

I will have two linux hosts plugged in at the endpoints of both the WAN POP Routers to ensure the packet transfer over X25.

I will have to run the same test again but this time, over an asynchronous serial interface and evaluate the impacts.

Any thoughts on this pls?
