I have a question concerning Layer 2 and Layer 3 data on the same device. We have a client that will be sending us Layer 2 data streams, but we have to send them to a device that will only take IP multicasts. We will be using a Cisco 7600 Router with a 6700 Switch Card installed. If this is possible with our hardware, can you point me to the commands that would allow us to bind or map the Layer 2 data to the Layer 3 port?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

6700 cards are end of sale and are not supported. Ideally you need a gateway which can understand Layer 2 traffic and multicast too. Most of Cisco’s routers can do that; however, commands will depend on your implementation scenario. If you can give me more details, I can help you out.
