Policy Based Routing Sim

May 8th, 2014 in Lab Sim, LabSim Go to comments


Company TUT has two links to the Internet. The company policy requires that web traffic must be forwarded only to Frame Relay link if available and other traffic can go through any links. No static or default routing is allowed.



Answer and Explanation:

Notice: The answer and explanation below are from PeterPan and Helper.Please say thank to them!

All the HTTP traffic from the EIGRP Network should go through Frame Relay link if available and all the other traffic should go through either link.
The only router you are able to administrate is the Border Router, from the EIGRP Network you may only send HTTP traffic. As the other people mentioned, actually it is not a BGP lab. You are not able to execute the command “router bgp 65001”

1) Access list that catches the HTTP traffic:
BorderRouter(config)#access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq www

Note that the server was not directly connected to the Border Router. There were a lot of EIGRP routes on it. In the real exam you do not know the exact IP address of the server in the EIGRP network so we have to use the source as “any” to catch all the source addresses.

2) Route map that sets the next hop address to be ISP1 and permits the rest of the traffic:
BorderRouter(config)#route-map pbr permit 10
BorderRouter(config-route-map)#match ip address 101
BorderRouter(config-route-map)#set ip next-hop

(Update: We don’t need the last command route-map pbr permit 20 to permit other traffic according to Cisco:

“If the packets do not meet any of the defined match criteria (that is, if the packets fall off the end of a route map), then those packets are routed through the normal destination-based routing process. If it is desired not to revert to normal forwarding and to drop the packets that do not match the specified criteria, then interface Null 0 should be specified as the last interface in the list by using the set clause.”

Reference: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6599/products_white_paper09186a00800a4409.shtml)

3) Apply the route-map on the interface to the server in the EIGRP Network:
BorderRouter(config)#int fa0/0
BorderRouter(config-if)#ip policy route-map pbr

4) There is a “Host for Testing”, click on this host to open a box in which there is a button named “Generate HTTP traffic”. Click on this button to generate some packets for HTTP traffic. Jump back to the BorderRouter and type the command “show route-map”.

BorderRouter#show route-map

In the output you will see the line “Policy routing matches: 9 packets…”. It means that the route-map we configured is working properly.

Note: We have posted a Policy Based Routing lab on GNS3 similar to this sim with detailed explanation, you can read it here.

    I have tried PBR lab in GNS3 with echo instead of www for testing , but policy doesn’t work ( don’t match ), any suggest ?
    BorderRouter(config)#access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq echo
    BorderRouter(config)#route-map PBR permit 10
    BorderRouter(config-route-map)#match ip address 101
    BorderRouter(config-route-map)#set ip next-hop
    BorderRouter(config)#interface fastEthernet 0/0
    BorderRouter(config-if)#ip policy route-map PBR
    debug ip policy ( status rejected )
    *Mar 1 00:12:22.503: IP: s= (FastEthernet0/0), d= (Serial0/0), len 100, policy rejected — normal forwarding ted — normal forwarding

    Hi guys:

    Can you please let me know how you generate the http traffic on the host. It is written that there is a button on the host to test but I dont see anything. Can you please let me know how should work it out or how ping should be configured to generate http traffic?

    Ok you just have to telnet with the dest. IP and port 80 and then check the PBR on the Border router. :)

  28. Gerasknd
    November 23rd, 2016

    Just came back from the test (passed). Explanation/Answer on this page cannot be correct as part of the requirements are as follows:
    1. All other traffic may use either link
    2. No static or default routing is allowed
    Boarder Router HAS NO route defined or learned via BGP. With configuration offered here, HTTP traffic will take frame-relay link, but all other traffic will be dropped without route. What I have done is this:

    BorderRouter(config)#route-map pbr permit 10
    BorderRouter(config-route-map)#match ip address 101
    BorderRouter(config-route-map)#set ip next-hop

    BorderRouter(config)#route-map pbr permit 20
    BorderRouter(config-route-map)#set ip next-hop

    Not sure if it was what Cisco had expected though…

  29. Gerasknd
    November 23rd, 2016

    One more thing, none of the commands “show route-map”, “show route-map pbr”, “show route-map all”, “show access-list 101” worked on the test. Simulation just did not accept any of the commands listed so I am not sure how we are supposed to verify operation.

  30. metastabil
    November 25th, 2016

    this SIM is missing the IP SLA commands, because “The company policy requires that web traffic must be forwarded only to Frame Relay link if !!AVAILIBLE!! and other traffic can go through any links”

    ip sla monitor 1
    type echo protocol ipIcmpEcho source-interface Serial0/0
    frequency 10
    ip sla monitor schedule 1 life forever start-time now

    route-map PBR permit 10
    match ip address WWW
    set ip next-hop verify-availability 1 track 1

  31. Quale Martins the thrids
    November 26th, 2016

    Anonymous @salman there is no need for the of ip sla because you are using pbr with the next hop so if the next hop ( goes down there will be no route for that route in your routing table and will take the normal path define by the routing table.
    Here is a reference for this:

    @Gerasknd & @Routehelp practice in GNS3

    Combining your input and question in GNS3, I have the following working. Substituting ICMP for WWW. It will not work substituting TCP ECHO for WWW.

    access-list 101 permit icmp any any echo
    route-map PBR permit 10
    match ip address 101
    set ip next-hop
    route-map PBR permit 20
    set ip next-hop
    interface FastEthernet0/0
    ip policy route-map PBR

    ip access-list extended WWW-TRAFFIC
    permit tcp any any eq 80
    permit tcp any any eq 443

    This access-list is more suitable, because it says “web traffic”, not just HTTP traffic. TCP port 80 for HTTP and TCP port 443 for HTTPS traffic. A similar example is in the Foundation Learning Guide book.

  43. Kubuntu
    December 8th, 2016

    I stand corrected. Took the exam today. The question says “web HTTP traffic” so there is no need to capture HTTPS traffic. Passed with 9xx. Labs OSPF, Redistribution, PBR, Virtual Link. OSPF evaluation sim, timers have changed as mentioned by others. Drag and Drop was Chap 3way handshake.

  44. Garrison
    December 11th, 2016

    I agree with metastabil the question clearly states a CONDITION for the PBR which requires IP SLA

    any one can tell me about the exact number of route maps
    because in 141 dumps he made two route maps 10 and 20
    but on digital tut he made just one route map

  62. Konan
    January 5th, 2017

    I think no need for route-map 20 clause:
    because if PBR fails,router will route as normal.Or,of course,we can add route-map 20 clause just to configuration without any match/set command.
    If you do set next-hop command for other traffic ,maybe it will be mistake.Bacause it is written that other traffic can use ANY interface.

  63. Konan
    January 5th, 2017

    Not to be risky,I think we can use permit clause 20 without any set/match command.

    Labs were almost the same as 9tut. Wording has change. PBR still the same. New questions on the exam, if you read through CCNP Cisco Press you can eliminate the answers and go with the best one.
