Multipoint GRE

Hi,

 

I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to do mGRE without doing DMVPN. With DMVPN, the spoke-to-spoke establishment would just be established right after spoke-to-hub is up. But I am trying to see if it is possible to configure the entire mGRE cloud like a multipoint frame-relay interface where each site can talk to each other directly. I have done some simulation and there are few things I have but not sure if it will really work in a production environment. I have created multiple NHRP map statements to map the physical IP of the destination GRE interface and the GRE IP. I was able to ping all ends of the GRE cloud but I cannot make OSPF/EIGRP work even if I have mapped the multicast IP as well. I tried to use EIGRP  neighbor statements to see if the EIGRP peers would come up using unicast and it did but not when multicast was used. I am having a hard time looking for the right document as everything is referring to DMVPN.

 

Any idea if this is a valid configuration or design?

 

Thanks,

John

I tried to use BGP and it

I tried to use BGP and it totally worked fine. But any multicast traffic is not working. I checked Wireshark and packets are being encapsulated on a GRE packet twice.
