I'm setting up a pair of 1310s to be set installed a few hundred miles away.
Out of the box with c1310-k9w7-mx.123-8.JEA3
To test the link here I have the two bridges EAP-Associated with a laptop attached to each via crossover and console cables. No vlans. Bridges and laptops are all on the same subnet. No routers or switches in the mix.
Ping and telnet between the bridges works fine.
Only intermittently can I ping between the laptops or from the root bridge to the non-root laptop & vice-versa. I once got a remote desktop connection between the laptops but it dropped.
I've tried static arp entries on the bridges with the IP and MAC of the peer bridge's laptop. Only sometimes does this seem to help. Proxy-arp and a broadcast address on the BVI didn't help either.
Is this normal; am I beating my head on the wall for no reason? What may I be missing?
