CUMULUS VX Configuration


Hi All,

I want to know how I can configure cumulus vx as a switch and I have to connect it to few vms. I am building a small lab where I have 1 pfsense virtual router, 1 cumulus VX switch and 2 VMS behind the switch. All vms are on virtual box

@pooja_shukla10, you can install FRRouting on the 2 VMs and connect them to the switch via layer 3. See the HostPack docs on installing and configuring FRR. And the Cumulus VX documentation should help you with getting started. I hope this helps!

If you're using Virtualbox you can manually tweak the virtual network settings from the different interfaces to connect to different private networks, using the private networks like you would a point-to-point link.
