Re: Is Cisco's DLSw+ compatible with other vendors' DLSw?
There are 3 RFCs related to DLSw:
RFC 1795 and RFC2166 are backward compatible; while RFC 1434 are not backward compatible with RFC 1795 and 2166. Cisco routers support RFC 1795 and 2166.
Nortel (Bay?) supports RFC 1434 and 1795. If you want to connect Cisco routers and Nortel routers, make sure that you configure RFC1795 on the Nortel routers.
IBM 2216 supports RFC 1795 and RFC 2216. However, IBM 2216 uses multicast and TCP to contact remote DLSw peer. Using multicast for DLSw peer connection is not common on DLSw implementations on Cisco routers. I suggest you to configure TCP on IBM 2216.
Other than Cisco routers, Nortel and IBM are the most commonly used routers for DLSw. One final comment, any routers/DLSw switches that are RFC 1795 compatible should connect to Cisco routers without any problem.
