Quagga OSPF, OpenVPN Site-2-Site and Cisco hardware.



  • Hi Guys,

    Setup:
    2 pfSense machines running OpenVPN Site-2-Site and Quagga OSPF.
    A few Cisco IOS routers and switches.

    Goal:
    Providing internet access to the Cisco HomeLab via OSPF.

    Momentarily everything runs like it should, except for a working default gateway on the Cisco routers.
    I Can successfully SSH in to the routers from both sites. And a "Show ip route" let me see every connection
    in my network including inter area connections. So all IP's are showing.
    On R1 it shows a "Gateway of last resort is 172.16.0.1 to network 0.0.0.0"

    2 things I think can be wrong.
    1th pfSense machine 2 does not "NAT" from OSPF to LAN/WAN.
    2th OSPF Router-ID for DR / BDR / DRother selection.
    3th Rules. (although when I ping from a Cisco router, pfSense show's a green icon in the firewall logs but the ping fails.)

    If I can provide more information, please let me know. Check network drawing for more details.
    If there are example configs out there, please redirect me.
