What is the exact difference between Port-Channel and Ether-Channel. or if they are same terms.
If the below setup is possible. If yes, please let me know the sample config of the L3 and the router1 or any link to the documentation will help.
Also, if the Port channel interface will be l2 or is it possible to configure it l3.
Your reply is higly appreciated.
Port-channel and ether-channel are synonyms.
The way you configured your channel is wrong (unless R1 and R2 are some kind of logically single router/switch such as N7K vpC or Cat6500 VSS - or for some other corner case scnario).
You need to have 2 or more links from a L2 or L3 device bundled together in a portchannel terminating to a SINGLE router or switch.
Yes, they are all same. In IOS-XR world, they call it bundle-ether.
Port-channel can be of L2 or L3 depending on how you configure it.
Port-Channel=Link Aggregation=Link Aggregation?
I guess you meant
the answer is yes.
Perhaps just to add a minor comment: "EtherChannel" or "Link Aggregation" is the particular technology that allows you to bundle several links between two devices and use them simultaneously as a single interface. The "Port-channel" is the name of this virtual interface in IOS. This is similar to, say, WiFi as a technology, and "Dot11Radio0" as the name of the interface, or ISDN as a technology, and BRI as an interface name.

Errr ... Dot11Radio0 and Dot11Radio1 are both physical interface. Bridged Virtual Interface (BVI) is a virtual interface for both wired and wireless networks.
Yes, you're right - I was merely pointing on the difference between a technology and the usual name for the interface to access that technology.
