FCIP vs HPEFCIP

Can anyone explain the difference between FCIP and HPEFCIP. I have two IBM 2005-R18 (Brocade 7500) and one licenseshow gives and FCIP license and the other gives a HPEFCIP (High Performance) but when I check the Brocade license features for purchase, there is only one to choose from and it says it is High Performace. As far as I can tell , the two switches are identical except for the HPEFCIP.

Thanks in advance

Cheers....

Hi

do you have the same FOS version on both routers ?

On all of mine (FOS 6.2.2b or more), I have a "High-Performance Extension over FCIP/FC license"

Kind regards;

I should have checked that first, but it does seem to be a version thing, when I brought the switch up to 6.3.0 it shows HPEFCIP...

Thanks ....

You can use Fast write and IPsec over your IP links.

You need the license on both ends.
