LDP signaling establishes targeted sessions to the remote VEs configured at the edge of the service provider’s MPLS core network. To enable LDP to establish these targeted sessions, you issue the mpls ldp vpls-id command to configure a VPLS identifier for the VPLS instance, and the mpls ldp vpls neighbor command to configure a list of neighbor (peer) addresses to which LDP can send or from which LDP can receive targeted hello messages.
This section describes how to configure LDP signaling for a VPLS network, but does not provide complete details about configuring LDP on E-series routers.
Table 81 lists the commands discussed in this section to configure LDP signaling for VPLS.
