The connection from EAST to WEST only requires a minor change from that configured in Basic site-to-site connection.
- WEST retains its fixed IP, so no modification is required to the remote peer IP address.
- EAST has a dynamic local IP, so that must change. The dhcp-interface option specifies the DHCP client interface.
- EAST is also configured for dynamic DNS, in this case with service provider DynDNS. See the “Configuring Dynamic DNS” section in the Ciena Vyatta Network OS Services Configuration Guide for details on configuring a system for dynamic DNS.
To configure this connection, perform the following steps on EAST in configuration mode.
|Remove the existing local-address configuration so that doesn't conflict with the dhcp-interface configuration that will be set.|
|Specify the DHCP client interface to use for the connection.|
|Commit the configuration.|
|View the configuration for the site-to-site connection.|
|View data plane interface dp0p1p1 address configuration. It is set to dhcp which configures it as a DHCP client. This is the setting required by dhcp-interface.|
