Weird things happening ….
Hello guys, we have a setup of routers, connected using ospf, mpls, BGP and vpls, a segment of that network goes from router MAIN to router B passing through a "Core" router and a "A" router through two point to point links. Connectivity from MAIN to B appears to be perfect.
Something like this:
MAIN, Core, A y B are Mikrotik routers
[w-x] y [y-z] point to point links Ubiquiti Rocket M5 (MTU=1600)
The thing is there is a VPLS from "MAIN" router to "B" router, (this same setup is up and running on different segments of the same network), the weird thing is that the VPLS sows UP and RUNNING on "MAIN" router end with only TX traffic showing on the stats counters, on "B" router end the VPLS shows as NOT RUNNING and only showing RX traffic on the stats counters... weird.
If I disable the vpls or change something on it at B router side it immediately shows as NOT running at "MAIN" router, so it looks like the vpls is half establishied or something....
None of he routers have firewall
Any idea where to look for a solution?
Router MAIN 5.25 on a x86 : (The other two VPLS are working ok, To Librado Edge Router is the one not working.
