sharing a x.25 link

sharing a x.25 link

sharing a x.25 link

Hy all,

First sorry about my english. I am a Spanish 24 years old boy who have started to work with Solstice X.25 9.2

I would like to know your opinion about this situation:

Up to now, I have an application running in a machine. This application (PAD) uses Solstice X.25 9.2. Basically, this application receives traffic from IP (with data to process in a host) and adapts it to x.25 protocol, sending these data to a x.25 host.
We use only one x.25 link, configured with 1000 SVC. It is quite enough because our application (PAD) receives only a few (10-20) of calls per second (and their durations are not too long).

Now, we want to have two applications (PADs) running in the same machine, and SHARING THE SAME X.25 LINK.

Is it possible that the two applications share the same link?
Which consequences would I have?

Thank you very much for your help!! It is my first work and I am a bit confused

Best regards from Madrid

RE: sharing a x.25 link

The only way you can split the line effectivly is to put a Router in between the x.25 line and your Servers.  We currently use a Motorola Vanguard 6520 router (now produced by Vanguard Managed Soloutions) to do this job and it does it well, however this model is no longer available and it has been replaced with the 6455 I understand this unit is just as good.  See http://www.vanguardms.com/products/ for the selection of products they make.

RE: sharing a x.25 link

You should be able to do this without any major issues. Layer 3 knows what svc's have been already allocated/used

RE: sharing a x.25 link

Hy all,

I am interested in this issue too.

So, paknetX25, in your opinion the only important point is the number of SVCs configured in the x.25 link, Am I right? If so, I agree with you

But, it could be any negatives consequences when two PAD applications (waiting incoming calls in differentes range of ports, but both applications running in the same machine) share the same x.25 link?
