Specifying Connectivity Information When Signaling Is BGP

 

To specify connectivity between sites across the network when signaling is BGP, fill in the fields in the Connectivity page:

  1. When the signaling type is BGP, fill in the fields in the Connectivity page.
    • Route Distinguisher—Identifier attached to a route, enabling you to distinguish to which VPN the route belongs. Each routing instance must have a unique route distinguisher associated with it.

      Note

      The IPv4 and IPv6 addresses that you use must be valid addresses. Refer to http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space for the list of restricted IPv4 addresses and http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv6-address-space for the list of restricted IPv6 addresses.

    • Route Target—Allows you to distribute VPN routes to only the routers that need them.

      Note

      The IPv4 and IPv6 addresses that you use must be valid addresses. Refer to http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space for the list of restricted IPv4 addresses and http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv6-address-space for the list of restricted IPv6 addresses.

    • Default MTU (Bytes)—The default MTU established by the system.

    • MTU range (Bytes)—Specify the range, in bytes, for the MTU.

    • VLAN normalization—The options available in the VLAN normalization field are based on the value set for the Ethernet interface. The following table presents the options.

      Ethernet Option

      Customer Traffic Type

      VLAN Normalization

      port-port

      Swap

      Normalize to None

      Normalization to Dot1q tag

      Normalization to QinQ tags

       

      Transport vlan range

      Normalization not required

      qinq

      Normalization to QinQ tags

       

      Transport single vlan

      Swap

      Normalize to None

      Normalization to Dot1q tag

      Normalization to QinQ tags

       

      Transport vlan range

      Normalization not required

      Asymmetric

      (Identical to qinq)

      (Identical to qinq)
