Hi All

I've manaeged to run and encrypt PE to PE traffic which is MPLS labeled throughout my network, I now need to look at a way of routing the traffic using MPLS TE tunnels for traffic engineering purposes is this possible. I've checked other forums and seen that it should be possible. But i just need to consider the MTU sizes. I'll set the MTU sizes to 1600 this should be fine.

Can someone explain the path the transported traffic will take. Because i was under the impression that the traffic will traverse the MPLE TE tunnel, But then i need the traffic to go via the GRE IPSEC which I've configured.

MPLS TE is Turning on MPLS TE over your encrypted GRE tunnels how is this done.  I already have a full mesh of GRE IPSEC Tunnels between nodes. How would I use MPLS TE to transport encrypted GRE traffic an example would be nice.

I'll send the topology below.

The tunnels should have two alternative paths. a primary path and a secondary path.
