Before you begin

It is assumed that routers depicted in the examples that follow are configured to provide basic connectivity. This configuration includes the host-name, Ethernet, or data plane interfaces, and gateway-address. See Ciena Vyatta NOS Getting Started Guide for information on basic system configuration.

Note: In the vRouter, a data plane interface is an abstraction that represents the underlying physical or virtual Ethernet interface of the system. The terms Ethernet interface and data plane interface are synonymous in this guide.
