In my back to the basis ... The frame relay switching ... Not much used nowadays but still in the CCIE! Frame relay switching is very straightforward, first you need to enable frame relay switching globally (more…)
Sometimes it can be useful to set up a MPLS Traffic Engineering tunnel between sites, but did you ever notice that by default the IGP will not consider those tunnels for traffic ? Did you ever try to change the OSPF cost of tunnel to force it to take traffic ? And it didn't work right ? Lets check that. We have a 7 routers setup, R1 and R7 will never be able to ...
We saw in a previous post how to set up a basic MPLS Traffic Engineering tunnel, we used explicit and dynamic path which worked very well but explicit path don't scale well and dynamic is too hazardous (you don't really know where your traffic goes). Hopefully for us the MPLS Traffic Engineering guys thought about it and added a function called MPLS Traffic Engine...
BGP has a feature called BGP conditional advertisement, the idea of this feature is to have the capability to announce a prefix on specific conditions. Lets say for example that you are dual homed, but you only want to use a provider in last resort (very expensive for example).

When configuring ISIS on an interface (a loopback for example) you something find the constraint "Advertise the Loopback0 in ISIS, do not use ip router isis and the prefixes should appear as internal ISIS routes". Lets take in another way, ever wondered why ip router isis disappears when you type passive-interface ? (more…)
When configuring ISIS over NBMA networks (such as ATM or FR) don't forget that you probably configured static mapping such as For ATM (more…)
For my CCIE prep when doing the IE workbooks I had to configure PPPoE with "MD5 authentication" Server side (the old way, we'll see that in details after): (more…)
Covering the basics, how to set up a MPLS traffic engineering tunnel. In our example I'll be running ISIS as IGP and a 4 routers topology. Diagram Step 1: configure MPLS MPLS configuration is straightforward Globally (more…)
