About the Interconnecting Ports Page
You are here: Configure > Interfaces > Interconnect Ports.
On SRX Series Services Gateways, the logical tunnel interface is used to interconnect logical systems. Use this page to interconnect logical system that serves as an internal virtual private LAN service (VPLS) switch connecting one logical system on the device to another.
This menu is available only for SRX4000 line of devices and SRX5000 line of devices.

Table 1 describes the fields on the Interconnect ports page.
Table 1: Fields on the Interconnect Ports Page
Displays the interface name. Logical interfaces configured under this interface appear in a collapsible list under the physical interface.
Displays the operational status of the link. Status can be either Up or Down.
Displays the configured IP addresses. Multiple IP addresses configured on one logical interface are displayed in a collapsible list under the logical interface.
Displays the mode of encapsulation. Encapsulation is the process of taking data from one protocol and translating it into another protocol, so the data can continue across a network. It can from the following points:
Ethernet and Frame Relay are used if logical tunnel interfaces connected between two logical systems. Ethernet VPLS will be used on logical tunnel interface which is connecting VPLS switch to logical system.
Displays the name of the logical system or the name of VPLS Switch.
Displays the peer details.
Displays the peer encapsulation mode.
Peer LSYS/VPLS Switch
Displays the name of the peer logical system and VPLS Switch.
Displays the type for logical interface—Logical System, Tenant, or VPLS Switch.
