Routing on an Ethernet Routing Switch 3510GT-PWR+
« on: February 27, 2014, 10:13:23 AM »
I've got to provide conectivity to a remote warehouse with 3-4 users and would like to treat this as a remote closet so that all traffic is routed via my current network and security infrastructure. I purchased a point to point link from my local provider and would like to use an Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch 3510GT-PWR+ at the remote site.

I understand I will need to create a /252 network between my Internet edge router and the provider and another one betwwen the provider and the remote warehouse but since I don't have a router on the other side, I would like to use the built in routing funcionality of the 3510.

If this is doable, can someone assit me with the configuration steps? Thanks!

It depends what the point to point service is.  From what you are describing I assume its a Layer 2 service like Metro Ethernet or VPLS.  Or even better, dark fiber???

It would be pretty easy to setup. 

At your head office whatever is your Core Router you would need to setup a new NNI(network to Network Interface) interface.  You can set this up as a VLAN or Brouter port. I would just a VLAN.

VLAN XXX with ip 172.16.1.1/30

On your 3510. you would enable routing, create other NNI interface using the same vlan XXX with an Int of 172.16.1.2/30 or 255.255.255.252

On your 3510 you need to create your default route back to your core network as 0.0.0.0/0 next hop 172.16.1.1

Assuming the user vlan for your 3510 is 10.10.10.0/24. On your Core router at your main office you would need to create a route back to that new wearhouse  10.10.10.0/24 next hop 172.16.1.2.


Done.

Last thing, if you have a routers(s) using OSPF or RIP you will need to make a policy to accept Static routes into the routing tables.

another thing you can do,

if its just 4 users you can just VLAN the traffic back to your core.

Hello Paul thanks for the quick response. I understand your explanation and it seems like the perfect setup. Can you explain the difference from that config to your second suggestion on just VLANning the traffic back to my core?

if the local user subnet/vlan for the new site is 10.10.10.0/24.  you wouldn't configure that gateway on the 3500, you would just create the gateway of 10.10.10.1 on the core router.

then just extend that vlan out from your core router to the new 3500. 

But I would call the service provider and see what they support or recommend.
