GARP VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP) is a standards-based protocol defined in the IEEE 802.1Q specification that provides for automatic VLAN configuration on switches. The Generic Attribute Registration Protocol (GARP) is used by switches supporting GVRP to register/de-register attribute values such as VLAN IDs between switches within the network. GVRP is the standards-based equivalent to Cisco’s Virtual Trunk Protocol (VTP). To read more about Cisco VTP, read my prior blog at networkpros.org. For this blog, I utilize 2 x Dell S60s [FTOS 220.127.116.11 ]and 1x Dell S50N [FTOS 18.104.22.168]. Below is the network diagram for this lab. (more…)

Check out my latest blog on networkpros.org where I demonstrate redistributing EIGRP routes into OSPF and redistributing OSPF routes into EIGRP in a mixed Cisco IOS and Dell FTOS environment. Of course only the Cisco switches are running EIGRP and all Dell switches are running OSPF. A Cisco Catalyst 6509 switch chassis is running both EIGRP and OSPF, and this is where the redistribution occurs. For this lab I use 1 x Cisco Catalyst 6509 [IOS 12.2(18)SXD7b], 1 x Cisco 7204VXR router [IOS 12.2(11)T9], 2 X Dell S60s [FTOS 22.214.171.124], and 2 x Dell S50Ns [FTOS 126.96.36.199].
Ethernet flow control allows for a receiving node to temporarily stop the transmission of data from the sending node. As defined by IEEE 802.3x this is accomplished via the PAUSE frame. (more…)
In this lab I use one Cisco 2621XM [IOS 12.4(2)T], one Cisco 2621 [IOS 12.3(18)], one Cisco 3660 [IOS 12.1(1)T], one Cisco 3640 [IOS 12.1(2)T], one Cisco 3550-24PWR-SMI [IOS 12.2(44)SE6], one Dell Force10 S60 [FTOS 188.8.131.52], and one Dell Force10 S50N [FTOS 184.108.40.206] to demonstrate multi-area OSPF in a mixed environment of Cisco and Dell Force10 switches. Below is a diagram of my lab setup. (more…)
