Bblink File


Policy information can be added to the bblink (link) file for a link entry by adding the following into an entry:

where policy_name1 and policy_name2 are names of the policies applied to the interfaces on both sides of the link, interface_name1 and interface_name2, respectively. This can also be accomplished through the IP/MPLSView client in Attach Policies to Interfaces on page 191. If making these modifications through the IP/MPLSView client, saving the network environment will automatically update the bblink file.


#linkname nodeA nodeZ vendor count [ C1= interface_name_1 C2=interface_name_2 ] [ IP1=IP_address_1 IP2=IP_address_2 ] [ POLICY1=policy1 POLICY2=policy2 ] Link345 Paris2 London4 DEF 1 C1=Serial2/0/0 C2=Serial5/0/1 IP1= IP2= POLICY1=polA1 POLICY2=polZ3

There should be no space between the keywords, the equal sign, and the name. Also the names should not include space.

For example, the following are incorrect specifications:

The following is the correct specification:

After creating the bblink file, you need to let the system know where that file is.

There are two ways of pointing to the bblink file:

  • Add in the specification file the following line:

    where bblink_filename is the name of the bblink file just created above.

  • In the Spec File Generation window of the IP/MPLSView client, click on the Network Files tab and then click on bblink button to select or input the bblink file just created above.
