OSPF path MPLS/point to point

Hey Guys,

I have two links on my router;

 

R1 ----- MPLS -----R2 ------------------------------------------1st link

R1-----pt to pt -----R3------MPLS----R2 ---------------------2nd Link

 

by default I am using 1st link and I would like to move to 2nd link, can anyone help how do I do that ?

Hey,You may use the bandwidth

Hey,

You may use the bandwidth command to influence OSPF path selection. Check the following:

Rajesh - pt to pt link is

Rajesh - pt to pt link is 100Mb and Mpls is 200Mb, I don't know how this will work as the link I chose to select is 100Mb. 

Hey,Check the cost of these

Hey,

Check the cost of these two interfaces with command 'show ip ospf int x/y', and to keep it simple lets change the cost. Configure a lower cost for 2nd link with command ip ospf cost at interface level.

HTH.

From R1 to R2, correct?  (R2 to R1 could be tricky - depends on how R2 interact with MPLS).

For R1 to R2, you could just set a direct (high) OSPF interface cost on the R1 port to MPLS.

All Mpls managed by vendor

All Mpls managed by vendor actually, R1 to R1 via MPLS I define the vlan interface and in the vlan interface OSPF cost is 1. on the other side, pt to pt link is very straight its a L3 interface with ospf cost of 1.

I have 5 ospf interface I am wondering what will happened if I increase cost of MPLS interface will be it go directly to pt to pt interface so will it go to other ospf interface with same cost =1.

Path chosen to destination will be path with least aggregate OSPF cost along the path.  Not knowing the topology for your other 5 interface, or the costs for each hop, unable to say.
