MPLS VPN lab #3

This lab will test a Central Services MPLS VPN.

The diagram is the same as my last VPN Lab. Also it uses my MPLS topology found over here: http://mellowd.co.uk/ccie/?p=522

This is the topology for this lab (click for a bigger image):

  • Customer1 and Customer 2 both have MPLS vpn’s through the ISP core.
  • Customer1 is using OSPF and Customer2 is using EIGRP
  • Customers should have no access to each others networks
  • Customers should be able to reach all their sites from all their sites
  • The ISP is now providing a mail relay for it’s customers to use. Ensure that all customers can get to the 10.200.1.1/24 subnet through their vpn’s, but they must still be seperated from each other.

Checking optical interface type

Sometimes you log onto a switch remotely and need to know what kind of optical interface the switches actually have plugged in. It’s pretty simple:

Switch#show interface gi1/0/25 capabilities
GigabitEthernet1/0/25
Model:                 WS-C3750G-24TS
Type:                  1000BaseLX SFP
Speed:                 1000
Duplex:                full
Trunk encap. type:     802.1Q,ISL
Trunk mode:            on,off,desirable,nonegotiate
Channel:               yes
Broadcast suppression: percentage(0-100)
Flowcontrol:           rx-(off,on,desired),tx-(none)
Fast Start:            yes
QoS scheduling:        rx-(not configurable on per port basis),
tx-(4q3t) (3t: Two configurable values and one fixed.)
CoS rewrite:           yes
ToS rewrite:           yes
UDLD:                  yes
Inline power:          no
SPAN:                  source/destination
PortSecure:            yes
Dot1x:                 yes

The most important things here is that you can see I have a 1000BaseLX SFP installed.
