EIGRP/multicast not passing through VPLS between E series and MX

‎03-06-2014 06:30 PM



We have an issue with Cisco EIGRP Hello packets(multicast) not passing through a VPLS instance between an E series  device and MX.

When we did packet captures we saw packets flowing through from MX to E series, but not other way around.  But unicast network control EIGRP updates pass through from E series to MX. 


I tried replicating the issue in the lab but the similar setup works fine . For now we have bypassed the VPLS instance in production as a workaround.


Has anyone faced similar issues before?  Any troubleshooting steps/commands that could help debugging the issue would be helpful.
