thanks for clearing the typo, (but i already thought about this and put the interface into the vlan 🙂
Still i dont understand how i could access the SRX from the EX (through the vlan).
I dont need to connect any endpoint computers to the SRX vlan, i just want to pass traffic from EX-Cluster to the SRX Cluster through the SRX port reth0.
can i just route it through the l3-interface on vlan 255?
this is the output of "show route 10.8.50.2" (the ip on reth0.0 family inet) on the EX:
ex-test0# run show route 10.8.50.2
inet.0: 12 destinations, 12 routes (12 active, 0 holddown, 0 hidden)+ = Active Route, - = Last Active, * = Both
10.8.50.0/24 *[Direct/0] 00:17:43 > via vlan.255
so this looks "ok" to me, but i probably did not fully understand the idea behind the vlan trunk.
my Problem is probably the SRX side, because it doesnt know about the vlan on the EX and tries to route
SRX> show route 10.8.50.1
inet.0: 15 destinations, 15 routes (15 active, 0 holddown, 0 hidden)+ = Active Route, - = Last Active, * = Both
10.8.50.0/24 *[Direct/0] 00:25:44 > via reth3.0
so the route sends packets into the vlan trunk, but the destination ip is not "inside" the vlan, right?
