Network Topology

Use LP1 to simulate the headquarters server and LP1 to simulate the branch client.

Configuration Steps

2. Device configuration


  1. Our MSR equipment is used as NHC with the following configuration


interface Tunnel2 mode mgre                                                    

 ip address               // Tunnel belongs to the global domain

ospf network-type broadcast                                              

ospf 1 area                                                            

source GigabitEthernet0/2                                                     

tunnel vpn-instance 1                                              

nhrp network-id 9                                                              

 nhrp authentication cipher $c$3$0MPkuM74bLtxsHEdSUNO7ajg92Foa9YdbA==          

 nhrp holdtime 2600                                                            

 nhrp nhs nbma                                                



interface GigabitEthernet0/2                                                   

port link-mode route                                                          

 combo enable copper                                                           

 ip binding vpn-instance 1                                                     

 ip address                                              


interface LoopBack1                                                             // simulate the branch client.

ip address                                              

 ospf 1 area 



B. Configuration of Cisco equipment

interface Loopback1    // simulate the HQ server                                                   

 ip address   


 ip ospf 1 area 0                                                              


interface Tunnel1                                                              

 ip address                                            

 no ip redirects                                                                

 ip nhrp authentication 123456                                                 

 ip nhrp map multicast dynamic                                                 

 ip nhrp network-id 9                                                           

 ip nhrp holdtime 3600                                                         

 ip ospf network broadcast                                                     

 ip ospf 1 area 0                                                               

 tunnel source                                                         

 tunnel mode gre multipoint                                                    


interface GigabitEthernet0/0                                                   

 ip address                                              

 duplex auto                                                                    

 speed auto                                                                    

 media-type rj45  



2. The test results

[MSR]dis ospf routing                                               


          OSPF Process 1 with Router ID                          

                   Routing Table                                               


 Routing for network                                                           

 Destination        Cost     Type    NextHop         AdvRouter       Area         1563     Stub       1562     Transit         0        Stub 



When ping the local loopback on Cisco device from local loopback, the traffic is normal:


[MSR]ping -a                                                  

Ping ( from 56 data bytes, press CTRL+C to break      

56 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=0.777 ms                        

56 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=0.700 ms                        

56 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=0.592 ms                        

56 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=255 time=0.600 ms                        

56 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=255 time=0.551 ms                        


--- Ping statistics for ---                                             

5 packet(s) transmitted, 5 packet(s) received, 0.0% packet loss                

round-trip min/avg/max/std-dev = 0.551/0.644/0.777/0.083 ms
