im facing problem trying to establish a GRE tunnel over mpls. The topology goes as follows:
(server) ----CE1(6500)-----PE1(6500)----vrf cloud-----CE2(6500)--FW
-server needs to establish a gre tunnel with FW.
-server receives a default route from CE1 via OSPF.
-CE1 has an default static route pointing to the next hop which is an interface VLAN (in a vrf) on PE1.
- PE1 receives a default route generated by CE2 (via mpbgp).
In this situation the GRE tunnel wouldnt come up.The only way i got the GRE to work was replacing the default static route on CE1 with a more specific static route.
On both cases (default AND specific static routes) the connectivity(ping) from end to end was there.
Has anybody seen anything alike?
