Matrix/discussion of capability with the differing interface deployment modes

L3 Networker

Is there a discussion or KB article that discusses a matrix/capability of the differing interface deployment modes.

I.e.,  Layer2's pros and cons, Vwire's pros and cons, etc.

there is one now 🙂

 

there's a section in the Admin guide that shortly describes all types of interfaces: Interface Deployments

 

 

any specific differences you are looking for ? let me try to list a few (for layer 2 interfaces, there is a layer3 config you can enable for the layer3 functionality so it's not strictly _on_ layer2, it does add the support to the layer2)

 

supports: vwire layer2 layer3  tap
vlan tags y y y y
tagged subinterfaces y y y n
untagged subinterfaces n n y n
minimum physical interfaces 2/vwire 1 1 1/tap
maximum physical interfaces 2/vwire all all all
routing n y y n
nat y y y n
wirespeed/SPPP y y y y
qos y y y n
dhcp n y y n
ssl decryption y y y y-inbound n-outbound
Captive Portal y y y n
policy based forwarding n y y n

That is literally what I was after.. a matrix like that...
PAN reps should publish this as a KB. Brilliant ! & Thankyou.

Hello,

 

the design guide describes the different deployment modes with their advantages / disadvantages:
