Pinging a Layer 2 VPN

To ping a Layer 2 VPN, use one of the following commands:

  • ping mpls l2vpn interface interface-name

    You ping an interface configured for the Layer 2 VPN on the egress PE router.

  • ping mpls l2vpn instance l2vpn-instance-name local-site-id local-site-id-number remote-site-id remote-site-id-number

    You ping a combination of the Layer 2 VPN routing instance name, the local site identifier, and the remote site identifier to test the integrity of the Layer 2 VPN connection (specified by the identifiers) between the ingress and egress PE routers.
