Hi,

There are three offices which are connected together thru Metro Ethernet. How to trace out which one the opposite router is?

Moreover, how to testing the available max bandwidth?

Hi Samuel


I would use the show cdp neighbours command, this should tell you what is on the other end as long as its enabled. to test max bandwidth I would use some kind of bandwidth checker, you can download them off the web .

If they use Metro, it is possible that your packets are going trough an MPLS core and more.. Even your packets are going trough a tunnel or VPLS

VPLS is L2 techonology, so your traceroute will not show the hops or routers.
