Configuring Layer 2 Circuit and Layer 2 VPN Pseudowires


ATM Layer 2 circuit and Layer 2 VPN pseudowires are configured using the same syntax described for ATM2 PICs.

To configure an ATM Layer 2 circuit and a Layer 2 VPN pseudowire.

  1. Go to the [edit protocols] hierarchy level.
  2. Configure a Layer 2 circuit over MPLS with a neighbor IP address (that is loopback address on the remote router) with the interface name (that is, the Circuit Emulation PIC ATM interface configured for CCC encapsulation).
  3. Configure a virtual circuit identifier for this Layer 2 circuit from 1 through 4294,967,295.

Configure the MPLS parameters and the other routing configuration as needed.
