Token ring vlan v.s. Subnet


In a ethernet vlan, usually on vlan is mapped to one ip subnet. In token ring vlan enviroment, is there any mapping among TrBRF vlan, TrCRF vlan, and ip subnet?

Thanks for you help.

Re: Token ring vlan v.s. Subnet

For token ring vlans a TrBRF vlan would be the parent of the child CRF's as a layer2 vlan. So for a IP subnet basically a 1 to 1 relation CAN exist for TrBRF's and there child CRF vlans.

So you can configure a subnet on a router with a BRF vlan and for all the child CRF vlans, they would be all part of the same subnet that the BRF lives in.
