Thankx for th post sir..its vy informative...


first thanks for this post and ofcourse for your all effort in this valuable blog

and i have some notes or explanations if you don't mind


directly above table4

you mentioned
Table 2 depicts that l2 session is established with peer against VCID 100
i think yu mean TABLE3 not 2

and you mentioned
The label can be different also

i can't understand this you mean the vc labels can be different
if yes how the packets will forward

again thanks a lot
and i hope i'll be a follower of you posts because you make it easy to understand

Really thanks for reading the document. You are abso right the table number should be three. Regarding second query about labels are different mean that in case case the local and remote labels are showing 19 so it could be different from 16 to 100000.


thanks for your reply

I am doing a final year project on mpls layer 2 VPN but I need your advice as the Uni I am in has no 7600 series router with even SIP card. Would any lower series router do the job I am willing to carry out?
Best regards

You can test the point to point layer vpn but point to multipoint is not possible in cisco without 7600+SIP/SPA card. For point to point l2 vpn please use the GNS software and the soft is open source based and easy to install on linux as well as on windows.
