I have a feeling that this might not be supported, but I would like to confirm this in case I am missing something
Basically we would like to enable the ethernet-switching family on the VDSL2 interface on an SRX320 running JunOS v15.1. This VDSL2 line will be used as a backup, but it needs to share the same L2 domain as the builtin Ethernet ports.
After enabling switching mode, the ethernet-switching family can be enabled on the GigaEthernet ports, but this option does not seem to be available on the VDSL2 interface:
set interfaces ge-0/0/1 unit 0 family ethernet-switching interface-mode accessset interfaces ge-0/0/1 unit 0 family ethernet-switching vlan members vlan100
root@SRX320-VDSL# set interfaces pt-1/0/0 unit 0 family ?Possible completions:+ apply-groups Groups from which to inherit configuration data+ apply-groups-except Don't inherit configuration data from these groups> inet IPv4 parameters> inet6 IPv6 protocol parameters> iso OSI ISO protocol parameters> mlfr-end-to-end Multilink Frame Relay end-to-end protocol parameters> mlfr-uni-nni Multilink Frame Relay UNI NNI protocol parameters> mlppp Multilink PPP protocol parameters> mpls MPLS protocol parameters
The link below makes me thing that only builtin ports support that mode, but it does not talk about the SRX320:
Anybody knows if this mode is/might be supported on those interfaces? If not, any ideas about how it could be implemented using different encapsulations? We are looking at converting the SRX320 into a VDSL2 bridge basically
Any ideas/comments will be more than welcome,
You are correct, ethernet switching is not supported on the vdsl port.
And there are not bridge mode operations available either.
I would ask your telco carrier if they have a bridge only modem option. Some of the major providers here would provide that along with a dsl line purchase and they were simple no configuration two port devices, dsl in and ethernet out. No pppoe configuration or anything required on the line.
Thanks for your comments, Steve! Your help is much appreciated
