I have 2 routers R1 and R2 connected back to back. R1 and R2 are ebgp neighbors for address family ipv4 and address family vpnv4. I want to test the following:

--Redistribute a route from R2's global routing table into the vpnv4 address family and advertise the same to R1 under vpnv4 address family. I did below, but can't see the routes being learnt on R1 under vpnv4 address-family. Please suggest what is incorrect.

Below are my current configs: On R1:

Router#sho ip int bri
Interface                  IP-Address      OK? Method Status                Protocol

Loopback111                unassigned      YES unset  up                    up

On R2:

        Router#sho ip int bri | i up

    You need to advertise the routes. You have the connection set up, but you need to tell BGP what to advertise. You can use network statements or a redistribution, with our without controls like route maps. – Ron Maupin May 18 '17 at 16:13
  • @Ron Maupin I have already given the redistribute statement – fsociety May 18 '17 at 17:01

    You are doing that in a different address family than the neighbor. Each address family will only communicate with the corresponding address family. – Ron Maupin May 18 '17 at 17:09
