    Example: Configuring VPWS on Local and Remote Routers

    The example in this section shows how to configure the VPWS topology illustrated in Figure 1. The example includes procedures for configuring VPWS on both the local E Series router (PE 1) and the remote E Series router (PE 2).

    Figure 1: Topology for VPWS Configuration Example

    Topology for VPWS Configuration Example

    Topology Overview

    The sample topology in Figure 1 includes two L2VPNs, L2VPN A and L2VPN B. L2VPN A connects CE 1, at the edge of Customer A’s Boston site, with CE 3, at the edge of Customer A’s Chicago site. Similarly, L2VPN B connects CE 2, at the edge Customer B’s Boston site, with CE 4, at the edge of Customer B’s Chicago site.

    The E Series routers in the topology, PE 1 and PE 2, each participate in both L2VPN A and L2VPN B. The example configures a total of four separate L2VPN instances, one for each L2VPN on each PE router. The instances for L2VPN A are named l2vpnA, and the instances for L2VPN B are named l2vpnB.

    For each VPWS instance, an Ethernet network interface provides a connection to the associated CE device.

    Each PE router in the sample topology also has an ATM core-facing interface that connects it to the provider (P) router in the service provider core. You must configure MPLS LSPs on the core-facing interfaces to connect PE 1 and PE 2 through the P router across the service provider core. Finally, you must configure BGP on both PE 1 and PE 2 to provide signaling for both L2VPNs.

    Configuration on PE 1 (Local PE Router)

    Use the following commands on the local PE router (PE 1) to configure the VPWS topology shown in Figure 1.

    Use the following commands on the remote PE router (PE 2) to configure the VPWS topology shown in Figure 1.
