bridge vplsName vpls transport-virtual-router virtualRouterName
no bridge vplsName vpls transport-virtual-router
Command introduced in JUNOSe Release 7.1.0.
Configures the transport virtual router for a VPLS instance that uses either BGP or LDP as the signaling protocol. Issuing this command creates a new VPLS instance on the router or causes an existing bridge group to become a VPLS instance. The no version removes the VPLS instance from the router and clears any attributes configured for the deleted VPLS instance.
A VPLS instance is a single instance of the virtual private LAN service (VPLS). VPLS employs a layer 2 virtual private network (VPN) to connect multiple individual LANs across a service provider's MPLS network. The multiple LANs function as a single virtual LAN.
The transport virtual router specifies the name of the virtual router on which the BGP or LDP instance that signals reachability for this VPLS instance is configured.
To create a new VPLS instance or configure an existing bridge group as a VPLS instance, you must issue the bridge vpls transport-virtual-router command before you issue any other commands to configure VPLS attributes; otherwise, the VPLS configuration fails.
