I offered one iPad Mini but in the end I’m giving three iPad Mini’s away. The first one to the person who answered it first as stated in my original blog post. The second one to the first person to answer it and explain why point-to-multipoint resolved it which is also worthy of an iPad Mini. Finally a third to a very detailed answer that is just too good not to give an iPad Mini for. Next time we’ll do the first answer and the best answer.

Here are the winner’s answers in order listed above:

Jessica Odlow contact the winners on Monday to get their shipping address and iPad Mini’s shipped out.

    Brian – I built a lab in GNS3 to demonstrate this issue and the P2MP solution. However, I cannot get the VL to come up unless the cost for EACH physical interfaces at both ends of the VL is less than 65535. My understanding was that if one interface had a cost of 65535, the VL would be up on one side and down on the other until the network type was changed to P2MP, at which point, the VL would come up fully.
    I have two routers connected via a frame-relay switch. Auto-cost reference is 10000. I’m using the bandwidth command on the serial interfaces connecting to the frame-relay switch. One side is set to 256 and the other to 128.

    My IPAD arrived a while back and it had been great. I’m currently sunk into this game “World of Goo”. I must say, what a distraction from CCIE studying!
