Re: 4506 SUP-4 Bridging configuration

Hello.

Thank you for the reply.

Any idea why doesn't it support bridging (L3 card with the SUPII does support it) ?

Any idea if and when will it support bridging ?

Thank you,

Boaz.

Re: 4506 SUP-4 Bridging configuration

Sup3/4 is a newer Supervisors and is designed for HW forwarding of IPv4 packets upto 48Mpps. Bridging even if supported would be through software switching path and not as nearly as high performance as ipv4 switching.

We can't comment on future support of this feature at this time.
