Cisco Router VRF

Cisco Router VRF's are virtual routers. Basically Cisco version of HyperV/VMWare.

The advantage of this is that you can take a single internet connection/MPLS connection and break it into 2 connections. Each connection will have its own outside-ip and inside-ip.

When this happens, the routes move from the physical connection to the virtual connection/VRF connections.

Show VRF connections:
show vrf

Show VRF routes:
show ip route vrf vrf-name-here

Add VRF route:
enable
config t
router bgp 65000
network 10.162.116.0
address-family ipv4 vrf vrf-name-here
network 10.162.116.0
exit-address-family
exit
ip route vrf vrf-name-here 10.162.116.0 255.255.255.0 10.162.100.1
(The above is: subnet subnet-mask gateway)
exit

Verify the config and save it as the startup config:
show run
copy run start
