Router configuration for a SNA HPR/IP <-> SNA LLC2 setup

Hello folks,

I have the below SNA(IBMs Systems Network Architecture) setup in my lab. I need some clarity on the Router configuration part:

Host A <---------------LAN------------------>E0 Cisco 3640 Router  E1 <-------------------------HPR/IP-------------------------> Host B

(SNA over LLC2)                                                                                                                   (SNA over HPR/IP)

E0 -> Ethernet Port: MAC Address A,

E1-> Ethernet Port : MAC Address B, IP Address: X

HPR stands for High Performance Routing, it is a protocol developed by IP for routing SNA packets over a IP network.

On Host A, I can configure SNA for a Source MAC address & a Destination MAC Address(Cisco's E0's MAC address)

On Host B, I can only configure SNA for a Source IP address & a Destination IP Address(Cisco's E1's IP Address)

My objective is to configure the  Cisco 3640 Router in such a way that, any SNA packet sent by Host A reaches Host B.

And, Host A should not configure the Mac address of Host B as its destination MAC address. The same holds on the other side as well.

In short, I would want a switching mechanism to be setup in the Cisco Router to forward traffic from Host A( incoming on E0) to Host B's IP address.

Then, forward trafffic from Host B (incomng in E0) to Host A's MAC address.

If you require any other details on the setup , pls let me know.

A quick response would be appreciated :-)
