Ping the Egress Router
Ping the egress router to confirm that communication over the network is operational.
To ping the egress router, enter the following Junos OS CLI operational mode command:
[edit protocols mpls] user@R1# run ping 10.1.56.1 PING 10.1.56.1 (10.1.56.1): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 10.1.56.1: icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=0.837 ms 64 bytes from 10.1.56.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=0.792 ms 64 bytes from 10.1.56.1: icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=0.856 ms ^C --- 10.1.56.1 ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.792/0.828/0.856/0.027 ms
The sample output confirms that communication between router R1 and the IP address of the relevant interface on router R5 (10.1.56.1) is operational.
