Nortel MLT to cisco etherchannel

Hi all

When configuring a trunk from a Nortel device using MLT, to a cisco switch using fixed port channel, Is this OK? I have it working at the moment and there seems no issue, just wanted to make sure its fine.

cheers

Sure does, I have a Nortel 8600 MLT connected to a 3750 etherchannel trunk, works just as it should.

Hi there

Did you just add a normal mlt and a normal fixed etherchannel, or did you have to use LACP?

Re: Nortel MLT to cisco etherchannel

Yeah the Cisco is just a normal Etherchannel adn teh Nortel I believe is too, although a consultant set this up, all I can see is this on the switch:

Nortel

mlt 12 create
mlt 12 add ports 2/45
mlt 12 perform-tagging enable
mlt 12 smlt create smlt-id 12

and something like

vlan 105 create byport 1 name "givemeaname" color 6
vlan 105 add-mlt 12
vlan 105 ports add 1/1-1/2,1/45,2/1-2/2,2/45 member portmember
vlan 105 ip create 192.168.26.254/255.255.255.0 mac_offset 19
vlan 105 ip pim enable
vlan 105 ip ospf enable
vlan 105 ip ospf authentication-type simple
vlan 105 ip ospf authentication-key ***
vlan 105 ip rsmlt enable
vlan 105 ip rsmlt holdup-timer 9999
