configure mirror to remote-ip protocol-type

configure mirror to remote-ip protocol-type [erspan-v1 | trans-ether-bridging | user-defined protocol_value]


Adds a configurable GRE protocol type for mirror-to-remote IP addresses.

Syntax Description

mirror Specifies configuring mirrors.
to Selects mirroring to another location.
remote-ip Sends mirrored packets to specified destination IP address using L2 GRE encapsulation.
protocol-type Selects GRE protocol type in the header of mirrored packets to all remote IP addresses.
erspan-v1 Specifies GRE protocol type 0x88BE, Encapsulated Remote Switched Port Analyzer version 1, also known as ERSPAN type II (default).
trans-ether-bridging Specifies GRE protocol type 0x6558, Trans Ether Bridging.
user-defined Specifies GRE protocol type specified in hexadecimal (for example, 0x6558).
protocol_value Specifes a user-defined, two-byte hexadecimal value for GRE protocol type (for example, 0x6558).


By default, the type is erspan-v1.

Usage Guidelines

The configured value is global, and the new value is applied immediately in hardware for all active mirrors to remote IP addresses.

To view the current setting, use the show mirror [mirror_name | control_index | mirror_name_li] | [all | enabled] command.


The following example sets the type as trans-ether-bridging:

# configure mirror to remote-ip protocol-type trans-ether-bridging
