Complex connectivity issue involving softswitch, bgp router, vlans & routes

mgdvecima

Level 1

I have a rather complex issue that involves a Cisco softswitch, a Cisco router configured for BGP routing, a L2 Cisco switch, and two RAD IPMUXs.

I am including a flat diagram that illustrates the layer 2 connections. On the diagram, the number adjacent to the vertical connection bar is the vlans allowed on that connection, either switchport access or trunk.

I use BGP routing on the router to advertise various routes. The issue is that the routes for the RAD IPMUX216 and RAD24 are both being advertised correctly and can be seen from remote sites. For example, from any remote site, I can ping any address on vlan 60 such as the switch, router, and IMMUX216 IPs. However, I can only ping the vlan 61 IPs for the router and switch, but not the RAD24. Even from the Softswitch and Router, I cannot ping the vlan 61 ip of the RAD24, 172.22.248.6. I can ping the softswitch from the router and vice-versa.

Here is a flat diagram for the network with some snippets of code. I can provide more info if needed. I changed the routable IPs just to hide some of our actual info. If I ping 172.22.248.6 from the softswitch and then issue the "sh arp" command, I get:

Victoria-SW#sh arp

have you tried connecting a second user on the IP MUX on vlan 61 and pinging b/w them ?

also try connecting a vlan 61 user directly on the switch and ping

if possible post the config of switch and IPMUX

Hi, Saeed

I forgot to update my posts. Last week, I did configure a laptop with the IP info of the IPMUX:

ip add: 172.22.248.6/29 and DG of 172.22.248.1 and plugged it into the same port that the IPMUX 24's User3 port was plugged into. I was able to ping this laptop from the switch and the router.

Here are some snippets that relate to network config of the switch, router, and IPMUX24.
