802.1Q trunk over a L2TPV3 Tunnel

Hi all,

I'm just curios about this scenario.

Can a switch-to-switch 801.1Q trunk be expand over an L2TPV3 connection or does it need a 802.1Q-in-Q before it goes through the tunnel?

Thanks folks,

Norbert

Re: 802.1Q trunk over a L2TPV3 Tunnel

Cisco says you can.

How I have it configured is a vlan per sub interface.

Ethernet over L2TPv3

Q. What are the main applications of Ethernet over L2TPv3?

A.

* Ethernet Trunking: enables user to take all of the Ethernet on an associated interface and tunnel it across an IP core to a remote destination.

* Per-VLAN Tunneling: enables the tunneling of individual VLANs. This method offers the granularity of controlling which of the traffic is tunneled to a given destination.

* VLAN Trunking: similar to Ethernet trunking, all VLANs that are associated with an 802.1q-based interface are passed across the L2TPv3 Tunnel. This is useful in trunking applications between Ethernet Switches.

I know you seen this but if someone else sees this, here is the configuration guide.
