VXLAN-GPE tunnel configuration

Examples that show you how to configure a VXLAN-GPE tunnel.

In the examples in this section, Vyatta routers R1 and R2 are configured as VTEPs. H1 and H2 are hosts that are connected to R1 and R2 and the hosts communicate with each other over the VXLAN-GPE tunnel. In this case, the VXLAN-GPE tunnel is an L3 interface with its own IP address.

In this topography, the tunnel is terminated on the VTEP and the traffic is routed in to the tunnel (rather than being bridged into the tunnel as it was for the basic VXLAN).

The VXLAN tunnel is established between the two VTEPs and it runs over a normal IP transport layer.
