transport ldp target hellos over different AS domains

Hi:

 

Is there anyway to transport ldp target hellos across different AS domains? assume IGP for those domains are IS-IS.

Hi,

 

Targeted Hello is just an UDP packet with dest IP address of remote PE (not a multicast address 224.0.0.2).  IMHO it should not be a problem to transport Targeted LDP Hello packet as long as you leak /32 IP addresses of remote PE routers between AS.

Thanks Mike:

 

Well I think, in order for two target hellos see each other and creats a neighbor/ajacency, without creating regular LDP a cloud in bewteen, somehow there must be ptp tunnel between them and this tunnel is capable of deliverying ldp packets, as the knob "ldp-tunlling" under the defintion of MPLS LSP.

 

Otherwise, in one IGP domain, two remote LDP loopback interfaces will form adjacency, without even enbling LDP everywhere.

 

Just wondering there is any way I could create a MPLS LSP cross two different autonomous systems (both running IS-IS).

[Michael] Right. In this case however you would need RSVP running also between ASBRs.

 

What are you trying to achieve (establish L2 VPN, martini)?In this case I would rather go with BGP-based L2 VPN as it suppors Interprovider VPNs (no LDP or RSVP between ASBRs).

well, the assumption is that there are cisco routers in another ASN. in this case we have to use Martini L2VPN (juniper term L2circuit).

I am trying to establish l2circuit over two different IGP ( different AS ). so i have to deploy ldp session between PE routers.

LDP session goes up over IGP cloud so i redistributed PE loopback /32 to our IGP cloud ( OSPF ). Also the same rules applied in other AS domain. 

 

But ldp session flaps so many and there is no connectivity between our l2circut ;
