VLAN "routing"

Hi, I've got a 2611XM which needs to be able to "route" a vlan through itself. It's connected to a L3 hp procurve, which is passing vlan 7. I want to be able to pass traffic on vlan 7 through the 2611.

I'm not sure this is entirely possible.

Host1(vlan7) -- L3Switch -- Radio (bridge) -- 2611 -- Host2(vlan7)

Re: VLAN "routing"

Hi,

What you really want to do is bridge (switch) the traffic through the 2611 instead of routing it. You need to use transparent bridging in order to accomplish this. Here's a link to a config guide and examples:

Re: VLAN "routing"

So this is basically creating a subinterface on each physical interface that the vlan will be "assigned" to, and then bridging those subinterfaces, correct?

Thanks!

Yep, that is it.

Re: VLAN "routing"

I'm getting back to this after a long hiatus. But is it possible to show an example?

Thanks
