Configuring IP FRR for VPN Routes

Configuring IP FRR for VPN Routes

When multiple CE devices in a VPN site connect to the same PE, you can configure IP FRR for VPN routes. IP FRR enables VPN traffic to be fast switched to another PE-CE link when the next hop of the primary route is unreachable.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring IP FRR for VPN routes, complete the following tasks:


IP FRR for VPN routes is used in scenarios where multiple CE devices connect to one PE device. As shown in Figure 7-40, the PE device forwards data to the site of vpn1 through Link_A, and Link_B is a backup link. When the PE device detects that the route to CE1 is unreachable, it immediately switches traffic to Link_B and then performs other operations to trigger VPN route convergence. This minimizes impact of the link failure on VPN services.

Configuration Procedure

The router supports IP FRR for VPN routes.

Perform the following steps on a PE device.


  • configuring IP FRR
    1. Run system-view

      The system view is displayed.

    2. Run route-policy route-policy-name { permit | deny } node node

      A node is configured for a route-policy, and the route-policy view is displayed.

    3. Run apply backup-interface interface-type interface-number

      A backup outbound interface is specified.

    4. (Optional) Run apply backup-nexthop ip-address

      A backup next hop is specified.

      The backup next hop is optional for a P2P link and mandatory for a non-P2P link.

    5. Run quit

      Return to the system view.

    6. Run ip vpn-instance vpn-instance-name

      The VPN instance view is displayed.

    7. Run ipv4-family

      The VPN instance IPv4 address family view is displayed.

    8. Run ip frr route-policy route-policy-name

      IP FRR is enabled for the VPN instance IPv4 address family.

Verifying the Configuration

Run the display ip routing-table vpn-instance vpn-instance-name [ ipv4-address ] verbose command to check the backup next hops and backup outbound interfaces of VPN-IPv4 routes in the routing table.
