Unanswered Question

What are you using VRF for?? meaning what type of traffic. I thought I could use VRF to segregate traffic within the network...for example we are a hospital and we provide "guest network access" which goes out a totally separate internet link. So I thought based on what i read on VRF I could use it to totally segregate the guest traffic.

1 VRF for "in house" traffic

1 VRF for Business partner traffic.

Your idea is the correct application for a vrf

As the other posters have noted, what you describe might be a good application for VRF.

In some respects, think of VFR to L3 as VLANs are to L2.

I use VRF's for our VoIP environment (among other things). Like the others said, your situation would work well with VRF's.
