Hello, I have a new Metro Ethernet connection to my data center from our remote office with the expectation of making this a point to point connection and eliminating the need for a site to site VPN over my internet connection. The circuit was tested and passed.
I attempted at configuring the switches last night to pass the traffic, however it did not work. I have a Dell PowerConnect 6224 with a MMF connection at my data center and my main office has a cat5e handoff from the modem. I have a Dell 1524 switch at my main office.
I configured the 6224 port as General and added VLAN 1010 which is what I use at my corporate office. I added the fiber port to VLAN 1010 and tagged it for my other VLANs. I did the same on my 1524 for the ethernet port. I made it a general port and added to VLAN 1010 along with tagging the same VLANs.
No traffic was passing when I did this. Am I misunderstanding how a metro ethernet circuit works? Does it function as just a standard point to point where it will simply pass my internal network?
