Re: HP EVI SUpport on the HP Simulator

I'm not sure EVI is configurable in the simulator. Even if you could traffic will probably not pass, because the simulator does not support ASIC specific encapsulation. The same counts for example for SPB.

A better way is to use the Virtual Services Router (VSR). The latest code supports EVI and you can get a 60-day demo license.

You can download it form the mynetworking portal under the software section:
