multiple mls include entries + mls behavior over 2ndary address

hello,

1. if there are multiple "set mls include" on the switch, how does the switch pick which rp? would it send request to all rp or sequentially or first one that respond?

2. when the switch has dot1q trunk to external router, one subinterface has many secondary address, and doing mls, a host send from a secondary address to another secondary address, would mls still kick in?

regards

Kevin

Re: multiple mls include entries + mls behavior over 2ndary addr

You can specify the IP addresses of multiple MLS-RPs on the same command line. Up to 16 MLS-RPs can be selected to participate in IP MLS.

The ip address of the MLS RP address is not significant because it works fine even when the interface no longer exists. It appears to just be an identifier between the switch and the router. If the first interface on the router changes and the router is reloaded then the SP will have to have the change updated with another 'set mls include' statement.

Here are some good links on configuring MLS :
