Configuring IP and MPLS over a Static Ethernet Interface

To configure both IP and MPLS over an Ethernet interface:

  1. Specify a Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, or 10-Gigabit Ethernet port.
    host1(config)#interface fastEthernet 4/0
  2. Create an IP interface.
    host1(config-if)#ip address 192.5.127.8 255.255.255.0
  3. Create an MPLS interface.
    host1(config-if)#mpls

Figure 11 illustrates this configuration.
