    Configuring the Encapsulation Type for the Layer 2 Circuit Neighbor Interface

    You can specify the Layer 2 circuit encapsulation type for the interface receiving traffic from a Layer 2 circuit neighbor. The encapsulation type is carried in the LDP-signaling messages exchanged between Layer 2 circuit neighbors when pseudowires are created. The encapsulation type you configure for each Layer 2 circuit neighbor varies depending on the type of networking equipment or the type of Layer 2 protocol you have deployed in your network. If you do not specify an encapsulation type for the Layer 2 circuit, the encapsulation of the CE device interface is used by default.

    Specify the encapsulation type for the Layer 2 circuit neighbor interface by including the encapsulation-type statement:

    encapsulation-type (atm-aal5 | atm-cell | atm-cell-port-mode | atm-cell-vc-mode | atm-cell-vp-mode | cesop | ethernet | ethernet-vlan | interworking | satop-e1 | satop-e3 | satop-t1 | satop-t3);

    You can include this statement at the [edit protocols l2circuit neighbor address interface interface-name] hierarchy levels:
