Configure a VXLAN tunnel on router R2

An example that shows you how to configure a VXLAN tunnel on a router (R2).

  1. Specify the bridge domain address.
    vyatta@R2# set interfaces bridge br1 address 1.1.1.3/24
  2. Specify that traffic transmitted between R2 and H1 uses interface dp0p1s2 and is associated with bridge br1.
    vyatta@R2# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1s2 bridge-group bridge br1
  3. Specify that interface dp0p1s1 connects to IP address 10.10.2.3.24 as the source VTEP for R2.
    vyatta@R2# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1s1 address 10.10.2.3/24
  4. Specify that tunnel tun0 is to be used for bridge group br1.
    vyatta@R2# set interfaces tunnel tun0 bridge-group bridge br1
  5. Specify that the tunnel tun0 is a VXLAN tunnel.
    vyatta@R2# set interfaces tunnel tun0 encapsulation vxlan
  6. Specify the local IP address to be used by the tunnel.
    vyatta@R2# set interfaces tunnel tun0 local-ip 10.10.2.3
  7. Specifies the remote IP address to be used by the tunnel.
    vyatta@R2# set interfaces tunnel tun0 remote-ip 10.10.2.2
  8. Specifies the VXLAN ID of the tunnel tun0.
    vyatta@R2# set interfaces tunnel tun0 vxlan-id 5000
