It seems like receiving sides do not accept incoming connections, hence
RST response and no receiving event in log. AFAIK, socket listening on should receive connections regardless of VRFs, so it should not
be a problem.

Do EBGP sessions work if you use 'passive' option, i.e. force to accept
incoming sessions instead of relying on outgoing sessions?

One thing to try would be to use 'listen bgp' option on IP address and
interface used for IBGP session.

Also, which Linux kernel version do you use?
