Bridge Control Protocol (BCP) support

Unanswered Question

I would like to know if it is possible to use the Bridge Control Protocol but limit it to a specific interface. Though The pdf guide I downloaded from Cisco shows that I have to disable all routing, I am hoping this could be limited to a given interface while allowing me to use the IP routing features for the other interfaces or ports.

My router is a 7602 with an STM1 channelized port adapter. I have multiple group of clients connected with various number of E1s on the router. I need to set the BCP with MLPPP for one particular client. Is it possible to restrict the BCP configuration for only the set of E1 circuits that go to this particular client.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Hello Widsonpf2010,

look for IRB you should be able to configure bridging only on selected interfaces as you need

IRB = integrated routing and bridging

be aware that some platform specific limitations may apply

Hope to help
