I was more or less thinking the former, i.e., from one side
of an Rbridge to the other. Some seem to believe that only
a router can be used in this instance and the dissimilar
media need to be considered as separate logical IP subnets.
Is there some magic in TRILL that would make it so that
two or more segments of dissimilar media could appear to
be part of the same logical IP subnet?
