    With the ‘=’ radio button selected, clicking a checkbox next to a single protocol will display links enabled for that protocol. When selecting the ‘&’ or ‘or’ radio buttons, logical combinations of protocols can be viewed. For example, in the above, only links that have both MPLS and OSPF enabled are displayed.

  2. To view the link metrics on the map, right-click the map and select Labels>Link Labels>Show Link Dist. Note that this will display the metrics for the current routing method used. The current IGP routing method is displayed in the upper right of the application next to the Tunnel later/layer 3 buttons.
