Foundry MG8

Hey Guys,

I am looking for latest firmware on the MG8?

Also looking for any words good or bad about them minus the normal EOL comments. we know they are eol ( so is 6500 chassis ) but we have about 5 laying around to throw into our campus network at a local college.

Wondering if vrrpe is a good way to run 2 mg8's with a carrier in each for redundancy, vlans would live on the boxes but im not sure if vrrp mirrors a vlan congif from one to the other?

Thanks in advance,

Hi curtis1,

     I do not have access to see what the latest firmware is for these units.  However the last manual was dated 2009.

     However, yes you can set them up in VRRP/E,  VLAN and STP are also fine. Not sure how you would flip your ISP though short of changing the default route?
