Simple bridge between 2610 routers

I had originally configured two 2610 routers with one having address on the Ethernet port and Serial Port unnumbered and the other having address on the Ethernet port and Serial Port unnumbered. The serial port is a 56K csu. This worked, but I uncovered a problem with my client/server application that required that I put both sides of my WAN in the 192.0.100 network. Now I think I need to reset the routers to some default state because I've experimented with settings and can no longer ping one router from the other. After that I will need to have a simple bridge so that all traffic is broadcast on both ends of the 56k link.


Re: Simple bridge between 2610 routers

In order to bridge ip, you need to disable ip routing, 'no ip routing', set up a bridge group, 'bridge 1 protocol ieee', and then put every interface on which you wish to bridge traffic in this bridge group with the 'bridge-group 1' interface subcommand. This includes the serial interfaces.
