Hello Experts,

We are an ISP and have deployed ospf recently, moving from layer 2 to 3, before all traffic used to come to core switch, where we could do bandwidth shaping, but now only traffic to internet comes out of OSPF cloud, if a client is making connection to another client then that cannot be controller, i have request for client to client connection, with QOS, but i cannot do that as i do not have control over that. How do i control and allocate such traffic using ospf ?

many thanks.

Or MPLS, which is what most ISPs use to create private networks within their cloud.

I already have MPLS on the network, the issue was how to handle client to client connectivity. I will try and read the docs link provided.

Many thanks.

Policy routing is probably not what you want. If you set up the client with their own VRF, they will have a private network, including a private OSPF process on your routers. You can leak your default route into their VRF in order to give them internet access.

I would suggest going to Cisco's web site and search for "configuring VRF."  Without knowing more about your network it's hard to be more specific. Maybe you could provide a drawing if you need more advice.
