Configuring ANCP for Backward Compatibility

You can configure ANCP to operate in a mode compatible with the protocol as it was initially proposed to operate. This pre-IETF mode is compatible with Internet draft draft-wadhwa-gsmp-l2control-configuration-00.txt, GSMP extensions for layer2 control (L2C). Setting this backward-compatible mode enables interoperation with devices that are not compatible with the current Internet draft for ANCP, draft-ietf-ancp-protocol-02.txt, Protocol for Access Node Control Mechanism in Broadband Networks.

To configure ANCP to operate in a backwards-compatible mode for all neighbors:

  • Specify the pre-IETF mode.
    [edit protocols ancp]user@host# set pre-ietf-mode

To configure ANCP to operate in a backwards-compatible mode for a specific neighbor:

  • Specify the pre-IETF mode.
    [edit protocols ancp neighbor 10.2.3.4]user@host# set pre-ietf-mode
