Is SNA supported by Cisco routers?

Hi,

Are "pure" SNA packets supported by cisco routers? I mean supported with no need for using Data Link Switching encapsulation for the SNA packets.

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Hello,

I think on the lower end routers, you will have to use DLSw, for e.g. the 7000/7200/7500 series, there is Cisco SNA (check the link below for details):

Cisco SNA (CSNA)

SNA packets are non routable traffic. In order to get the SNA traffic out of your local segment or Token Ring you will require some sort of SNA transport. Cisco supports RSRB and DLSW and DLSW+, STUN and BSTUN and other various methods used with the CIP module... But you need to use a transport method to get your SNA traffic across your network.....
