I’m stuck deep in Junos these days. I mean deep. That means I have some learning to do.
One of the big things that I’m dealing with lately is VRFs. I’ve implemented some VRF-lite stuff, but I’ve never had any practical experience with the full force of them. I’m definitely learning here. Since the blog here is really about my sharing what I’ve learned, let’s go through something that came up recently – terminating VPNs on one VRF while passing traffic to another.
A route must appear in the routing table via an IGP in order for that routes to be able to be voted ‘best” by BGP.
For God’s sake, do not lower the AD of EIGRP! Havoc will ensue.
Route reflectors remove the requirement of having a full mesh iBGP network.
BGP confederations remove the requirement of a full mesh iBGP setup as well as the need for BGP synchronization.
It’s simple as pie to enable MD5 auth to a BGP peer.

This is required blogging…and reading for that matter. A good chunk of this is taken from my CCNP posts from last year. Corrections, please.
