Configuring the ATM-over-ADSL Logical Interface Encapsulation Type

 

Configure the logical interface encapsulation type by including the encapsulation statement:

You can include this statement at the following hierarchy levels:

[edit interfaces interface-name unit logical-unit-number]

[edit logical-systems logical-system-name interfaces interface-name unit logical-unit-number]

Table 1 shows the logical interface encapsulation types for ATM-over-ADSL interfaces.

Encapsulation Types

Comments

Physical Interface

ether-over-atm

Ethernet over ATM encapsulation.

Use this type of encapsulation for interfaces that carry IPv4 traffic.

atm-pvc

ATM permanent virtual circuits (PVCs).

Logical Interface

atm-vc-mux

Use ATM VC multiplex encapsulation.

You can only configure the inet family when you use this type of encapsulation.

atm-nlpd

Use ATM network layer protocol ID (NLPD) encapsulation.

You can only configure the inet family when you use this type of encapsulation.

atm-cisco-nlpd

Use Cisco NLPD encapsulation.

You can only configure the inet family when you use this type of encapsulation.

atm-snap

Use ATM subnetwork attachment point (SNAP) encapsulation.

atm-ppp-vc-mux

Use PPP over ATM AAL5 multiplex encapsulation.

atm-ppp-llc

Use ATM PPP over AAL5 logical link control (LLC) encapsulation.

ether-over-atm-llc

Use Ethernet over LLC encapsulation for interfaces that carry IPv4 traffic.

You cannot configure multipoint interfaces if you use this type of encapsulation.

ppp-over-ether-over-atm-llc

Use PPP over Ethernet over ATM LLC encapsulation.

You cannot configure the interface address when you use this encapsulation type. Instead, you configure the interface address on the PPP interface.
