I have a Unix station on Vlan X and Unix-based DHCP server on Vlan Y. The Unix station needs to address the DHCP server (that located on different vlan) with Reverse arp (sending it's MAC in order to get it's pridefined IP address from the server). Does anybody have any idea how it may be done on CAT6500 switch (with layer3 capabilities)?
There is routing between these vlans. Vlan interfaces are located on the same switch.
After lots of reading and researching, I've found out that Cisco simply doesn't have a solution for this issue. The only sulution by Cisco, is to bridge the Vlans, but that solution is practically a joke.
Other vendors (such as Nortel) have various solutions, for example: Protocol based Vlans, MAC-based Vlans, Port-based Vlans and subnet-based Vlans. In this case, according to Nortel, the solution is creation of RARP Vlan (protocol-based vlan)- on top of port-based Vlan. The whole vlan logic is different in Nortel and has much more possibilities.
