Virtual Switching System (VSS) allows two Cisco Catalyst 6500 or 4500 switches to be connected together so that they appear to the network as a single switch. Other devices in the network will see the VSS configured switches as a single switch, which allows the engineer the ability to create multi chassis Ether-Channels between the VSS pair and other devices while appearing to other protocols like spanning-tree as a single switch.

Posted by: admin  :  Category: BGP, CCIE, CCNP, GNS3 Dynamips, Routing

CCIE-BGPIn this free GNS3 Lab you will be configuring EIGRP, OSPF, IBGP and BGP across multiple autonomous systems. You will also configure Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint Frame-Relay. For this lab we are using an old INE topology consists of 9 routers and 4 level 3 switches. Routers with switching modules install have been substituted for level 3 switches as GNS3 does not support level 3 switches.
