This command configures the source interface for the MSDP peer TCP connection.
|peer all||Specifies all MSDP peers.|
|remoteaddr||Specifies the IP address of the MSDP peer.|
|ipaddress||Specifies the IP address of the MSDP router interface to use on one end of a TCP connection. The ipaddress must be one of the MSDP router interface addresses; otherwise, the command fails and an error message displays.|
|any||Specifies to use any interface as one end of the TCP connection. The source interface is selected based on the IP route entry used to reach the MSDP peer. The egress interface that reaches the MSDP peer is used as the source interface for the TCP connection. Basically, this command removes the previously configured source interface of the MSDP peer.|
|vrname||Specifies the name of the virtual router to which this command applies. If a name is not specified, it is extracted from the current CLI context.|
By default, the source interface is selected based on the IP route entry used to reach the MSDP peer. The egress interface that reaches the MSDP peer is used as the source interface for the TCP connection.
You must first disable MSDP or the MSDP peer before using this command. We recommend that you configure a source interface for MSDP peers that are not directly connected. We also recommend using the loopback address as the MSDP peer connection endpoint.
The following example configures a source interface for an MSDP peer with the IP address 192.168.45.43:
configure msdp peer 192.168.45.43 source-interface 184.108.40.206
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.0.
