I’ve set up a few Juniper routers just to do basic routing, however, I have a question that I’ve been unable to find an answer to.
I noticed that there are some virtual router commands in JunOS. What is this for? Is this similar to the virtual routers in the NetScreen firewalls?
Can I add several interfaces (virtual or physical) to one virtual router, and several to another? Effectively partitioning the router into two separate routers with two separate routing tables that didn’t exchange routes between each other?
That’s insane! I love Juniper.
Under JunOS there are virtual routers (similar to Netscreen virtual routers) and logical routers (similar to Netscreen virtual systems only a little more powerful - available from M-Series up).
Under JunOSe, logical routers/virtual system functionality is achieved using the virtual router command…
Essentially with a single M7i or anything above and a cross-over between two interfaces, you can build a network of up to 15 logical routers. On an ERX that number becomes 1000!
Did you get my PM?
I put this in as a feature request to Cisco about 7 years ago, and they still don’t do it.
That’s the idea.
