Example: Configuring BGP on the VPLS PE Router


This example shows how to configure BGP on the VPLS PE router.


Before you begin:


In this example, you configure an internal BGP session between PE routers so that the routers can exchange information about routes originating and terminating in the VPLS. The PE routers use this information to determine which labels to use for traffic destined for remote sites.


On all SRX Series devices, BGP-based virtual private LAN service (VPLS) works on child ports and physical interfaces, but not over aggregated Ethernet (ae) interfaces.


Step-by-Step Procedure

To configure BGP on the VPLS PE router:

  1. Configure the BGP internal group on the VPLS PE router.
  2. Configure the BGP family L2vpn and specify NLRI signaling.
  3. If you are done configuring the device, commit the configuration.


To verify the configuration is working properly, enter the show protocols command.
