Re: understanding Routing Cisco vs. Linux

Hi Thedore!

what exactly is that you are trying to do...

Does linux support 802.1Q trunking yet? or ISL?

because, by the looks of it, this is what you REALLY want to
do... otherwise? why are you putting the linux box in there?
what benifit does it bring?
