OPT-E-MAN new service configuration

Hello,

I have new service from AT&T which they state is sending untagged traffic to all my new ports.

 At my central office I have a 2821 with an interface configured like this:

interface GigabitEthernet0/1/0
 description (Fiber connection to HFE/
 no ip address
 negotiation auto
!
interface GigabitEthernet0/1/0.1
 encapsulation dot1Q 20
 ip address 172.16.5.1 255.255.255.0
!
interface GigabitEthernet0/1/0.2
 encapsulation dot1Q 10 native
 ip address 172.16.2.1 255.255.255.0

At the remote sites I've tried tagging the interface for Vlan# but it doesn't seem to matter.  What does work is which ever side I set for "Native".  So router2 let's say had an interface configured for 172.16.2.2 it's running along no problem.

router3 172.16.5.2 doesn't get any traffic.

I know I am missing something.  Please talk to me like I am 5 because I am just a lone ranger on this one without a smartnet contract.

Thank you so much in advance!

You have configured the interface as tagged with the encapsulation command, native tells the interface that these frames in vlan X are untagged, thats why the native works.

So my questionis, if they are sending you untagged frames why are you configuring the subinterfaces with the encap and trunk type?

Is the opt-e-man basic?

Thank you for the reply.  If I remove the encap then it strips the ip address also. When I go to reapply the address I get :

% Configuring IP routing on a LAN subinterface is only allowed if that
subinterface is already configured as part of an IEEE 802.10, IEEE 802.1Q,
or ISL vLAN.

For the record, I am 99% this is user error.

*edit* Sorry, yes the service is basic (best effort).

Have you tried it without the sub-interface?   Native means the frames are untagged so you should not need the encap or sub. Give it a try.

Not sure how I would do that without a subinterface?  Can I put two address on one interface?  I have two connections coming into one port.  

Sorry if my questions seems clueless but that's about where I am  ;)

Router 1
ip address 172.16.5.1 255.255.255.0
ip address 172.16.2.1 255.255.255.0 secondary

Router 2
ip address 172.16.5.1 255.255.255.0

Router 3
ip address 172.16.2.2 255.255.255.0

It can't really be that simple can it?

So is AT&T sending untagged frames or tagged, or both? You say untagged only initially?

Well they say it's untagged traffic.  Router 2 is at one physical location and Router 3 at another.  My understanding was that all traffic was available to all locations (not port based).

opt-e-man basic is pt-2-pt only, the other service is multi-point. I would sniff the traffic and see what is coming in, tagged or untagged. If it is untagged only that means there are no additional vlans arriving via tagged frames. Are you sure you are getting multiple vlans with that service?

So, if they are untagged you do not add the encapsulation commands, it would be as if they are on the same vlan on your closet switch. All you would need to do is configure a layer3 interface and ip address. AT&T's network is a layer 2 transport network.

From what I can see, no tagging.

so this should work then?
Router 1
ip address 172.16.5.1 255.255.255.0
ip address 172.16.2.1 255.255.255.0 secondary

That would be inline with two subnets operational on the same wire without tagging, agreed.
