Example: Configuring MPLS on the VPLS PE Router


This example shows how to configure MPLS on the VPLS PE router.


Before you begin:


This example shows you how to configure MPLS on the PE1 router to advertise the Layer 2 VPN interface that communicates with the PE2 router.


MPLS is disabled by default on SRX Series devices. You must explicitly configure your router to allow MPLS traffic. However, when MPLS is enabled, all flow-based security features are deactivated and the router performs packet-based processing. Flow-based services such as security policies, zones, NAT, ALGs, chassis clustering, screens, firewall authentication, and IPsec VPNs are unavailable on the router.


Step-by-Step Procedure

To configure MPLS on the VPLS PE router:

  1. Configure the interface to the PE2 router for MPLS.
  2. Configure the loopback for MPLS.
  3. Configure the path to destination
  4. If you are done configuring the device, commit the configuration.


To verify the configuration is working properly, enter the show mpls command.
