I have built a topology in GNS3 with five routers with a goal to perform:

1)inter vrf routing with bgp as the routing Protocol between Routers. 2)build DMVPN tunnel on the top of it.

I was successful in the 1st task but stuck with the second one. I have one DMVPN router which is spoke, one R1 which is Hub and a WAN between them. DMVPN router seem to be generating nhrp registration requests but the hub is not receiving the nhrp registration requests. but underlay routing seems to be fine because i can ping from one Router's Public IP to another.

I am attaching the configs of all the Routers in comments and also the Topology I am working on.

I have been stuck on this thing from the past two days. Any help would be appreciated

Thank You in advance! enter image description here

  • Please post your configuration as preformatted text using { }. – Teun Vink Dec 23 '16 at 10:21
  • @TeunVink I formatted and updated the configs. They should be easy to go through now :) – Rohit Dec 23 '16 at 10:36
  • can you ping the public IP? – Ron Royston Dec 23 '16 at 17:08
  • Yes I can ping the public IPs on both the ends. @RonRoyston – Rohit Dec 24 '16 at 0:13

You are running DMVPN on a VRF enabled device. Both your public interface (used as tunnel source) and your tunnel endpoint is VRF enabled.

To have the tunnel endpoint in a VRF, you need to enable VRF forwarding on the tunnel interface, which you have done.

To have the tunnel source in a VRF (called frontdoor VRF), you need two things:

  1. The tunnel source interface needs to have VRF forwarding enabled
  2. You need tunnel vrf spoke1 under the tunnel, to instruct the tunnel to use the specified VRF

On R1 and DMVPN, add the following configuration:

int tun 0 tunnel vrf spoke1

You can get additional information on frontdoor VRFs for example on this blog post.
