Re: Redundant 2524 Switch network

Hi Rouf,

If you want to setup your network as described, you need "meshing". But that feature is not supported from the 25xx switches. It will be possible with the 3400cl Series. You will found more information about meshing in the "Advanced Traffic Management Guide" for the 53xx and 34xx switches on page 7-1 ff. You can download these information here: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/networking/software/Advanced_Traffic-5300xl-3400cl.pdf

Kind Regards

Re: Redundant 2524 Switch network

Read the informations about meshing and i think you can answer this question by yourself. I can not see any trick.

Your only alternative is to consider using Spanning Tree Protocol. However, all redundant links will be dormant, unlike meshing where all links are active.
