Here i'll show how to configure DN42 peering via BGP on an old Extreme Networks Summit 1i routing switch. This how-to should be also applicable to any other 'i'-series switch.
Looks like ExtremeWare doesn't support any tunneling mechanism in contrast to ExtremeWare IPv6 or ExtremeXOS operating systems. So you need either put your switch behind the router which will do tunneling with DN42 participant or directly connect the switch to our network, if that possible.
This configuration was tested on latest EW of 126.96.36.199 patch1-r4 version. But it should work on most of older releases as well.
## DN42 should go both in internal (for clients) and external VLANs create vlan svlan configure vlan svlan ipaddress 192.168.1.100/24 # Adding an alias enable multinetting standard configure vlan svlan add secondary-ip 172.22.251.2/23 ... enable ipforwarding configure vlan svlan add subvlan ext ... # It is worth to filter alien nets create access-list deny_int ip destination any source 192.168.1.0/24 deny ports 2-16 ... ## # Adding route to a neighbor configure iproute add 172.22.151.1/32 172.22.251.1 configure bgp soft-reconfiguration configure bgp AS-number 65534 configure bgp routerid 172.22.251.2 enable bgp
Now, if you're trying EBGP with your peer:
# Announce our network configure bgp add network 172.22.151.0/23 create bgp neighbor 172.22.151.1 remote-AS-number 65535 # Point to a proper outgoing interface, useless in case when Super VLAN is used #configure bgp neighbor 172.22.151.1 source-interface vlan ext enable bgp neighbor 172.22.151.1
Or IBGP (local router does the EBGP in following example):
# Don't wait for an EBGP disable bgp synchronization create bgp neighbor 192.168.1.1 remote-AS-number 65534 enable bgp neighbor 192.168.1.1
Next, you may diagnose the things doing:
show bgp show bgp neighbor show bgp neighbor 172.22.151.1 received-routes all show bgp neighbor 172.22.151.1 transmitted-routes all
After that ping and traceroute are your mates. It is worth to point switch to the DNS which knows .dn42 zone:
configure dns-client add name-server 192.168.1.1
And use names.
