GVRP and MVRP

Will GVRP on ICX devices work with MVRP on MLXe devices? It seems that only one is supported on each platform.

Re: GVRP and MVRP

Hi,

 

I am by no means an expert on GVRP or MVRP but as far as I can tell from some quick research they are both standards based.

 

GVRP which is an extension of the 802.1Q specification and was replaced by MVRP IEEE 802.1ak amendment in 2007.

 

As far as I can tell they do not appear to be compatible with each other and cannot interact with each other on the same network

 

Hope this helps

 

Regards

Mick
