    Posted 13 days ago

    I am using a MSR2013 router
    The command below doesnt work:

    interface Vlan-interface1
     description To LAN
     ip address

    interface GigabitEthernet0/1
     port link-mode bridge
    Instead i have to use:
    interface GigabitEthernet0/1
    port link-mode route
    ip add

    Can someone explain why layer 2 configuration is allowed if the interface will only act as a layer 3 in the first place?
    Why no error message?
    How do i know if a port has switching or routing capabilities and if an additional module is necessary?
