Can VLAN's Traverse P2P T1?

Unanswered Question

I have two 1841's with T1 HWIC's, I am wondering if it possible to have VLAN's traverse the T1 connection from our 6513 switch at our main campus to a 3550 switch at a remote site. I would like to be able to setup different VLAN's on the 3550. I am not very advanced in Cisco routing and I have looked through Cisco's site without luck. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have this problem too.

Although it is possible to achieve that, the real question is, do you 100% positively need that ?

A sane network design calls for separate subnets and routing at remote locations, not bridging. I would recommend you do that and leave the VLANs in a campus environment only.

Hi, routing does not prevent that in any way.

Really there is no document about, such is the nature of networking, recommend perhaps some "primer" book.
