Port fall over for wireless Bridges

 

Port fall over for wireless Bridges

Hi

 

i wonder if anyine can help with this question.  we have a HP 2920-24 as a core switch.  and the same at a remote site.  connecting the 2 sites is a 1gb wireless bridge and an old 300mb link that i am using as a manual backup.

What i would like to do is use something like smartlink or something like that to automatically fall over if the main link goes down.

the only issue i can think is if the PSU at site 1 blows then the fallover will go via the backup, but at site 2 the port that the bridge is connected in to will still be "live"  am i correct in thinking that this would stop information going back or are the switches inteligent enough to know that they are down.

 

thanks

Re: Port fall over for wireless Bridges

hello

What routing protocol are you using between the 2 sites?

Thanks for your reply.

there is currently no routing at all.  they wireless jsut acts as a bridge between the 2 switches,

Can the wireless bridge be configured to disable its LAN port if its remote partner becomes unreachable?
