Lab 173 - CE-to-PE RIPv2 Configuration

Prerequisites: CCNP level skills.

This lab layout is based on the new physical topology presented here. This lab assumes that you have successfully configured ALL previous MPLS labs.

As per recommendation ALL loopback addresses on P and PE routers will use /32 network mask! 
PE routers are: R1, R3, SW3.
P router is: R2
All other devices are CE routers in this MPLS topology.

Task 1
In R6 configure four additional loopback interfaces and advertise all of them using RIPv2. The new loopback addresses should be as follows:
  • Loobpack1 =
  • Loopback2 =
  • Loopback3 =
  • Loopback4 =
Task 2
Configure PE router (R1), to accept prefixes advertised by R6 using RIPv2 protocol. Make sure that R1 can accept RIPv2 prefixes from other potential CE routers with overlapping addresses.
