Multiple EoIP tunnels or VLANs

Sun Sep 18, 2016 12:08 pm

Hello,

Trying to bridge two sites carrying several VLANs. Should I create one EoIP tunnel per VLAN or should I create a single tunnel with multiple VLAN interfaces?
Or should I follow some different approach? Please advise.

Thanks!

Mark

I think the best answer to this is "as you wish". Although it is easier to manage one tunnel instead of several ones.

Beware of mtu's though. if you push multiple vlans through an eoip tunnel you decrease the mtu as the vlan headers take up 8 bytes.
