VPLS Tunnel won't pass traffic using OSPF NSSA

Tue Aug 04, 2015 5:47 am

Rather new to MPLS + VPLS on Mikrotik and trying to get it working for PPPoE delivery in my lab however I have run into a problem I don't think is MTU related.

For now I have removed all switches bridges etc while I try to troubleshoot why one of my tunnels is not passing traffic.

Here is the scenario

R3 =HEXlite ----------> R2 = RB2011 ---------> R1=CCR1036

********************EDIT******************

Above was my original post but now found out that if I change my OSPF area to default it works. But on NSSA it doesn't

Is this just the way it is ? I can live with it but would like to know if there is a way around it other than changing area type.

You need loopback address distributed to NSSA area from backbone. Otherwise VPLS tunnel will not be able to establish.
Either you change area to default or set translate-always and inject-summary-lsa.

Hello. Please, could you tell me where do I need to translate?

I'm on same scenario, trying to establish a VPLS tunnel between backbone and a NSSA area.

My NSSA area has normally two RB750 and 4 RB912 on each RB750.
What I need is to establish a VPLS tunnel on a RB912 <--> CHR (which is part of my backbone)

Thanks a lot!!!!
