Hi,

Tried (in vain) to find out whether 802.1q can be set up over the Ethernet
modules or will it only run over the FastEthernet ones?

Thanks,
Voitec

2610's with IP Plus and 12.x (search google) can do dot1q over Ethernet
ports.

HSB,
Thanks for the quick reply. I know that the 2610s do it as of 12.2(2)T and
was wondering about the 4000 series as well.

That's because FastEthernet does not seem to be supported on the 4000s (only
on the 4500s and 4700s) yet they seem to have 802.1Q support as per::
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios120/relnote/4000ser/rn4000t.htm

So it has to run over the Ethernet interfaces then. Wouldn't you say?

I'm after a few 4500s and if I can do without the NP-1FE modules ($100-$150
each) then I'll be very happy.

Thnx,
V

I wouldn't bet on it.  It doesn't say that 10Mbps NPs can do dot1Q.

I would not want to bet on it either HSB (and thankfully I don't need to).
However this is exactly why I posted my Q as the doc I listed seemed to
suggest that this is possible. Hence, I was wondering if there was anyone
around who has had similar experiences and success with dot1q on the 10MB
interfaces on a 4000 series.

I guess one way to find out is to buy a 4500M with the Ethernet module and
check. If it does not work then I'll need to get the additional NP-1FE
modules.

Let me think about that one tho...it's a 2 horse race at the moment: a 4500M
vs a 2611...ohhh, and it's only for a home lab just in case anyone asks.
Hence, I'm trying to spend the $$$ wisely.

Thnx,
Voitec

Perhaps it depends on the IOS?  I know a 2620/10 with a NM-1E will run dot1q
on the 10 mbps Ethernet port with certain IOS's but won't with others.
Knowing that the 4500/4700's are dead to Cisco, perhaps the IOS's don't
support trunking on a 10 mbps interface.

What's the IOS release?  What's the min/max memory requirement?  I have
a 4500M that I can test with...

Thanks Brad. Unfortunately the CPQRGs are not usually detailed enough and
one has to search thru the feature list of a particular IOS release.

Having said that, thanks for including those guides on your site as they can
be quite useful as a starting point for ppl who search for general details
on end-of-line products. I know how much time can be wasted on Google
searching for stuff just like that. I'm surprised they are not on Cisco.com
(unless I could not find them)...

Cheers,
Wojtek
