Multilayer switch question

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by argyam samarpayami, Dec 9, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    I am eager to know how a packet gets forwarded on a L2/L3 switch.
    Came to know that there is an L2/L3 lookup table in fwd path, but I
    would specifically like to know how an IP packet gets fwd.
    Does a L2 table lookup happen for a IP packet. If not for what kind of
    packets does L2 table lookup happen in a multilayer switch.

    Thank You,
    Argyam
