MPLS L2VPN, tunneling routing protocols

mrboogieman

Hello could somebody help me here ? .. I´m trying to figure out if there is any way to connect a CE --- PE1 --- L2VPN --- PE2 , the CE is going to be configured using eigrp or ospf and then the PE2 recieve the CE connection as if the CE is directly connected through a Vlan and a dot1q subint. I was trying to use a BVI and then attach this bvi to a L2VPN , but at the same time i don´t know what kind of "xconnect" i should use to connect to the PE1 how could I handle the PW transport-mode since the bvi encap is ARPA, should i use a l2transport on the PE then bind it to the bvi then create a bridge group under the lsvpn conf and then do the xconnect .. I´m a little confused

The picture shows kind of the thing that i would like to do. The main idea is to set this Pseudowire across the mpls and on PE2 (ASR9000), have ths l2interface that is used to do the PW but at the same time I would need a routing interface (vrf aware) attached to the same domain as the l2interface in order to allow CE to have IP conectivity with ASR9000, thus allwing eigrp to work.

Hi Fabian

This blog might answer your question

Let me know if need further clarification

Hey Sandip

Thanks for your answer, sorry for the delay. Well I saw that information before and was actually trying to do something with evc, specifically bvi interfaces since I read that you could create a bridge group then include a l2 and l3 interface.

Regarding the problem I posted before, I´ve been working on two different aproaches to face the problem; evc (using bvi and l2transport interface) and Pseudowire Headend. Finnally I tried both and the one I was looking for was the bridge group with irb and xconnect to the first PE.  My configuration looks something like this (on PE ASR900)

!

bridge group group1

bridge-domain bdomain1

mtu 1560

interface Bundle-Ether1.66

!

neighbor 3.3.3.30 pw-id 1234567890

!

routed interface BVI65

!

And the satus of the tunnel looks like this

I´m going to use this solution because is the one that can support our requeriments, Pseudowire Headend work fine, really easy, but the problem is that today with IOS XR 4.3.0 the pw-eth doesn´t dynamic routing protocols like eigrp, ospf, etc... just plain L3 routing.

Thanks for your support
