SNA to Ethernet via 56k

trying to establish a connection on  an ibm 3745 controller via two IBM 5822 modems to a cisco 2600 router using sdlc encapsulation secondary bridging data from the serial port to the E/Net port to run the 3270 client ???


Matthew thanks for the reply! Is the vmac and partner address are arbitrary or do they need to be based on an actual mac address? Refering to your mention of the PC mac address. Not sure if I needed to use the bitswap tool to change actual mac addresses or just create my own Just not clear on that aspect. Then I assume i configure the PC to talk to a mac or I assign an address. Just seeing different things in examples, such as in
though that is a bit different scenario.

My scenario is exactly as described, IBM 3745 -> IBM 5822 modem -> 56k leased line -> IBM 5822 -> Cisco 2600 WIC-1T -> PC/3270 emulation software. I was using a SDLC card attatched to the 5822, but could not get any communication. At the moment that is the case with the Cisco 2600 using the DB60-DB25 cable, about to try the DB60-V.35 cable. I will likely have more questions once I can talk to the 5822 from the 2600.

William, Is the IBM5822 also doing dlsw ? My assumption is that it has a dlsw peer to the 2600 and is also converting sdlc to dlsw. Any chance of opening a tac case so we can make a webex and take a look at what is happening. Matthew
