Unanswered Question
Apr 9th, 2007

hello,

is it possible to configure a tunnel, which has the source and destinationinterface in a vrf AND this tunnel should be a global interface.

with this scenario a want to define a backup pe-pe connection.

I have this problem too.

hi hritter,

thx for answer.

yes, i know this command - but in every example i read, the tunnel itself is in a vrf.

i want the tunnel (which has source and destination in a vrf) to be a global interface, where i can configure label-switching for example.

i want to use a vrf interface on a pe for backuping the global pe-pe interface.

i know - its a littlebit strange - but i want to try.

The tunnel interface itself will be part of the global unless you specifically configure it to be part of a VRF using the command "ip vrf forwarding ".

Hope this helps,

Hope this helps,
