FRR OSPF not peering (no neighbor)
How do I TSHOOT this? I am not certain what to do from the shell to get "into FRR shell"...
The usual way you troubleshoot anything on the firewall. Check the logs (system log, routing log, firewall log) for any sign of unexpected events. Check your connection to the peer and make sure you can reach your neighbor. Check the FRR status screens to see if anything stands out.
What type of connection do you have to the peer? Are you sure it passes traffic in a way that can work with OSPF?
You can run
vtyshfrom a shell if you need to dig in deeper to frr directly, but OSPF is pretty simple. More than likely it isn't a problem in FRR but in the link or the config.
Thanks jimp... what I didnt mention these pfsense's were VMs that were between to different KVM hypervisors. these links provide a solution for any VNF / NFV peeps were kvm qemu is being used.
I added OSPF to FW rules on both sides and then had to do this as well. (virsh edit domain) and vm (pfsense) reboot
