6513 CatOS to 6509 IOS - w/FWSM

Hello I have a fiber connection I want to utilize between a 6513 and a remote (MAN) 6509. The 6513 is hybrid (not my doing) and I will have the 6509 native. The MSFC on the 6513 has no physical ports on the MSFC.

Heres what I want to do: I want to create a L3 connection between the 2 - a /29 - and DMZ off all of the VLAN's on the 6509.

Can I create an L3 interface on the hybrid 6513? I am guessing no. Can someone verify?

yes, you can create an L3 interface on the 6513 if there is an MSFC in it.

to get to the MSFC on the primary supervisor use the 'session 15' command from the switch command line.

see this link for more info:

Thanks. But my real question is:

Can I make a switchport on a 6513 with an MSFC a L3 interface?

With hybrid configuration, you don't use switchports. In the hybrid you use SVIs as L3 interfaces. You need to associate the ports in the L2 configuration to the SVI in the L3 configuration.

For instance,

On L2:

set vlan 2 name test state active

set vlan 2 2/1-4

On L3:

int vlan 2

ip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0

Re: 6513 CatOS to 6509 IOS - w/FWSM

OK we are getting closer. Thanks for the replies !!!

Can i do this:

Cat6513 (CatOS)

L2

set vlan 2 name test

set vlan 2 2/1

L3

int vlan 2

ip address 10.2.121.11 255.255.255.248

Cat6509 (IOS)

int gig3/22

no switchport

ip address 10.2.121.12 255.255.255.248

Then run fiber between the 2 and create the /29?

You got it. Just to nitpick since it's point-to-point, use a /30 :)

Please rate all posts.

Thanks

Cant. I wanted to do /30 heres why I cant (or think i cant)

I now want to introduce FWSM on the 6509. Since the SVI is created, I can now make an SVI between the 6509 and its FWSM on a firewall vlan that has a DMZ ip on that /29

Then I can route from the 6513 MSFC static to the supernet that lives on the 6509

make sense?

Yes, it does make sense. Good luck.
