Hello all (and Stephen who I just talk on the phone with [Army Guy])
I have a questing reguarding routing protocols and VMware ESX Server.
Ripv2, OSPF, BGP protocols probably will not work between Vyatta and a physical router. Ripv1 worked slightly because it uses a broadcast not multicast transmission. The other protocols require multicasting capability which is not compiled into the Linux kernel by default. I discovered the same problem while attempting to interface GNS3(on windows) to a real Cisco router.
I'm using the VC3 Virtual Image provided from your download center and I'm unable to get these protocols to to talk to eachother.
Now, do I have to install a multicasting daemon on my ESX server since linux OS doesn't support multicasting?
I've ran a sniffer inbetween my two agents (ESX Server running VC3 and my 7206 router) and I see the Hello Packets from the Cisco Router but not from my VC3.
Any and all help Thanks in advance.
