Configuring IBGP Sessions Between PE Routers in VPNs on EX9200 Switches

 

You must configure an IBGP session between the PE routers to allow the PE routers to exchange information about routes originating and terminating in the VPN. The PE routers rely on this information to determine which labels to use for traffic destined for remote sites.

Configure an IBGP session for the VPN as follows:

The IP address in the local-address statement is the address of the loopback interface on the local PE router. The IBGP session for the VPN runs through the loopback address. (You must also configure the loopback interface at the [edit interfaces] hierarchy level.)

The IP address in the neighbor statement is the loopback address of the neighboring PE router.

The family statement allows you to configure the IBGP session for Layer 2 VPNs, VPLS, EVPNs or for Layer 3 VPNs.

  • To configure an IBGP session for Layer 2 VPNs and VPLS, include the signaling statement at the [edit protocols bgp group group-name family l2vpn] hierarchy level:

  • To configure an IBGP session for EVPNs, include the signaling statement at the [edit protocols bgp group group-name family evpn] hierarchy level:

  • To configure an IPv4 IBGP session for Layer 3 VPNs, configure the unicast statement at the [edit protocols bgp group group-name family inet-vpn] hierarchy level:

  • To configure an IPv6 IBGP session for Layer 3 VPNs, configure the unicast statement at the [edit protocols bgp group group-name family inet6-vpn] hierarchy level:

Note

You can configure both family inet and family inet-vpn or both family inet6 and family inet6-vpn within the same peer group. This allows you to enable support for both IPv4 and IPv4 VPN routes or both IPv6 and IPv6 VPN routes within the same peer group.
