    Hi,
    I am sure this is easy question, but I'm not sure. Can someone explain me
    the role of MSFC and PFC modules. As I see it, MSFC add L3 routing, and
    without it, cat6500 is basically L2 switch.
    As I have read PFC adds L2-L4 services. But that is not routing, right ?
    What does that mean.
    Can someone explain me the difference in functionality between those
    confoigurations:
    Sup2+PFC
    Sup2+MSFC
    Sup2+MSFC+PFC

    thanks,
    j
