MPLS TE - IP Explicit Path

Hi all,

Just wonder what is the best for the next-address, shall we point to next hop router interface ip or the router loopback ip ?

ip explicit-path name path1 enable

next-address 172.18.255.46

next-address 172.18.255.42

next-address 172.18.255.2

next-address 172.18.255.1

Re: MPLS TE - IP Explicit Path

Both would work. If you have multiple links between 2 routers and want to force the link through a specific link you can probably use the interface ip.

If you want it to be choosen dynamically you can keep specifying the next-hop as the loopbacks of all the directly connected routers in the Tunnel path.

HTH-Cheers,

Swaroop
