Many Thanks,will try it later.

Another Problem was using overlapping IP , I can't use same IP address in different Ros's interface,but can do in Cisco router ;Does ROS's VRF solve the problem of overlapping IP address ? Can it like Cisco Router, put an interface into vrf ?

Currently with the latest version you can't have overlapping addresses on the PE-CE link (the link from the MPLS router to the customer router), but you can overlap everything else. If you make sure your PE-CE link uses unique addresses, you can use 192.168.1.0/24 on every VRF.

I am not sure whether the PE-CE link issue is a bug or a feature. It's not that critical to us at the moment, as we plan on using the PE-CE link address as surveillance address on our NMS systems, and uniqueness is a good thing there :)

I know it has been a while but did you get pptp-server interface work in VRF ? Because even if i add pptp-server interface into VRFs interfaces it still does not connect. Are there any 'secret' settings to work with ?:)

Hi mate how ya going
I wanted to comment on the vrf question
I am no way an expert but I am certainly a mikrotik homosexual :P joke
I think what you need to be thinking is correct me if im wrong but
just because a router provides the VRF routing
imagine it as a private road for someone

just cuz the router gave someone else ( keyword a customer)
dont mean your alloud to ride on that road, i beleave you need to be a member of the VRF to drive on it ?

so basicly you need to add the router it self to be on that VRF, just because it provided the VRF dont mean it can send data on it.
if im wrong smack me
im in right ahem karma :P

I use a PPTP client interface in a VRF and it does work *but* whereas it correctly adds the route for the PPTP interface to the routing table for the VRF if I ask it to add a default route it adds it in main not in the VRF table - that is on v5.17.
