Quagga / Zebra

Any users of it out there? I'm trying to figure out if there's a way, using debug commands, to verify that OSPF is learning routes form BGP when the "bgp redistribute" command is used. Gracias!

We use a combination of Quagga and OpenVPN on Anonet, an entire encrypted network running on top of the public Internet ( Anonet Wikipedia entry / Anonet connection information )

The only process I go about debugging (since the Quagga documentation is in need of some serious updates) is using the "clear proto *", e.g. "clear bgp *" - this clears all the BGP routes. Start your interfaces up, and they should start exchanging information.

Then, if you issue a "show bgp ip" (iirc) it will show you some routes.

As well, you can go to a command line and issue a "netstat -r" (or equivalent if you're on Linux I suppose) to show the routing table. If you have entries, it's working.

Well, my problem is that my systems talk BGP natively, and I can see that it's learning it's BGP routes, but I have a client system that needs to learn those routes over OSPF, so I fired up the OSPFd and told it to redistribute bgp, but I can't tell if it's working, as I don't have access to the client firewall to look at it's routing tables.

Do you have access to the daemon ? You should be able to see the routing tables through there.

Yeah, it was an issue with zebra not handing off the routes... stupid "safe" networking. I had to make some changes and recompile, but all is well now.
