netbios dlsw question

Setup: 2 remote sites connecting back to the main site. Main site router has connection to mainframe vlan.

Problem - I'm trying to use dlsw for netbios traffic. can a user at remote-site-1 reach a user at remote-site 2 via netbios? It seems like both remotes can reach the central site devices (servers and workstations) via netbios dlsw, but there is difficulty when going from remote-1 to remote-2.

thanks.

Re: netbios dlsw question

Yes they can reach each other if configured to. First assumption is that they can route between each site (ie site one can reach site 2 via IP). If they can, then you can set the remote sites up as each others DLSW peers (as well as with the central site).

eg. on site 1

dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 10.11.11.11 (central site)

dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 10.10.10.10 (site 2)

on site 2

dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 10.11.11.11 (central site)

dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 10.12.12.12 (site 1)

Or you could get more fancy with promiscuous mode and peer groups (only if you have more then 2 remote sites though, otherwise not really worth it). See link: http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/697/config_dlsw_peers.html .

eg.

site 1

dlsw local-peer peer-id 10.12.12.12 group 2 promiscuous

dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 10.11.11.11

central site

dlsw local-peer peer-id 10.11.11.11 group 2 border promiscuous

dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 10.13.13.13 (another border group if you had one)

site 2

dlsw local-peer peer-id 10.10.10.10 group 2 promiscuous

dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 10.11.11.11

Also make sure you don't have filters set up. If this doesn't work, post your config.

Hope it helps.

Steve
