Re: 2612 TokenRing to Ethernet bridging, need help

Hi,

Which protocols do you try to bridge - layer 2 or/and layer 3 protocols (ip/ipx).

If you bridging ip, you can try irb with bitswapping of layer 3. Be aware of RIF.

Hope this gives you some ideas.

Brg,

There should a command along the lines of

bridge 1 bitswap-layer3-addresses

Hi

Thanks for the help, but it still doesnt work. From our 2612 and to the Tokenring side we have a IBM8272 Tokenring Switch which everything is connected to. So I'm wondering if there is anything that I'll have to do in this switch as well?.

BTW i have added these lines in global mode:

bridge 1 bitswap-layer3-addresses

bridge irb

Hi,

Sorry for delayed answer.

It is not good to have both srtlb and irb since it could generate a loop.

You should try to use a sniffer to see what is happening.

Steinar.
