Can someone please tell the difference between using the 'redistribute connected' and 'redistribute static' when configuring static routing between a PE and CE in an MPLS network?
In addition to my original question how can I tell what interface is connected to 184.108.40.206 in the following configuration?
ip route vrf customerA 220.127.116.11 255.255.255.240 18.104.22.168
The above configuration allows the static network 22.214.171.124 255.255.255.240 via ip address 126.96.36.199. The ip address will typically be the customers CE router. Is there a way of determining what interface on the PE is connected to the CE router with the ip address 188.8.131.52?
The distribution applies to protocols like OSPF, ISIS, BGP, etc.. and not MPLS. Redistribute connected basically redistribute the connected physical and/or logical interfaces for that specific router you are doing the redistribution. redistribute static redistribute static routes or default route to the routing protocol. If for example a CE has static routes configured towards a specific network and also peers with a provider via OSPF or BGP, these static routes need to be redistributed to OSPF or BGP to be reachable from remote networks.
