VTP over point-to-point

Can vtp be setup to work over a point-to-point? Using 2950 and 3550 switches and 2620 and 3825 routers.

Re: VTP over point-to-point

Hello,

VTP can be used only between switches, routers don't support it unless they have some form of etherswitch module installed.

All links between switches have to be point-to-point L2 trunks carrying Vlan 1 (Vlan1 permitted and in STP forwarding state)

a routed port breaks the VTP domain in two parts

if you mean a L3 point to point link on the routers it cannot be crossed by VTP and you need to use two VTP domains= two distinct campus networks

Hope to help

Giuseppe
