extend a L2 vlan

Unanswered Question
Apr 16th, 2009


I need to extend L2 vlan across a L3 link and I had thought about doing a l2tpv3 tunnel... is the best option? I read in the forum that cat4500 and cat4000 do not support these tunnels but have not found anything in web.

I have this problem too.

is the forum where I read that Cat4500 do not support l2tpv3 tunnels but I have not found any written document about this.

I have 2Cat4500 joined by a L3 link and I want to extend a L2 vlan from one network to another.

put a dedicated link is the best option to do this?

L2TPv3 is only supported on router platforms. You can verify this by using the Feature Navigator. Adding a dedicated link will work.
