IOS with MPLS for 2610XM ?

Unanswered Question
Feb 8th, 2007

There is no image with mpls that I can find, the lowest router is the 2651xm.

However for my home lab I have 2610XM maxed out with 256meg mem and 48meg flash.

Is there any IOS I can run that will allow me to configure MPLS VPN ?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

I tried the feature navigator and cannot seem to find a simple feature definition of MPLS.

Hi, dtushing123

I have a 2610xm with ios image c2600-ik9s-mz.123-10b.bin. It can run mpls vpn and TE very well.(except some new advanced features)

Sorry for the messup

Hi, dtushing

Please ignore my first post. There is a typo. The letter "i" and "j" look so simalar that I made a mistake when I used "cut&paste", I cut the wrong one.

c2600-ik9s-mz-123-10b.bin is an IP PLUS feature set. It doesn't support MPLS.

c2600-jk9s-mz-123-10f.bin is an ENTERPRISE PLUS feature set. It does support MPLS. As far as I tested on my router, it can support most of the features on topics like LDP, MPLS VPN, and MPLS TE.

The Feature Navigator is a helpful tool but not for MPLS. It is not that accurate to find MPLS-related features on 2600 platform like it does on other features.

As for the file, go to the Google and type the image name in the serach box and see what you can find there.

Hi,

Cisco 2600XM does not support MPLS PE. Multi-VRF CE is supported.

Best Regards

I have not started to configure anything but want to configure MPLS P, PE, Multi VRF and use other lessor routers (probably 2500 series) as CE

Check this image out,

System image file is "flash:c2600-advipservicesk9-mz.123-10f.bin"

R3#show mpls ?

atm-ldp ATM LDP Protocol information

forwarding-table Show the Label Forwarding Information Base (LFIB)

interfaces Per-interface MPLS forwarding information

ip MPLS IP information

label Label information

ldp Label Distribution Protocol information

traffic-eng Traffic engineering information

It doesn't matter what CLI shows you. There is no garanty for a running configuration.

MPLS PE is not supported on 2600XM series.

Use 2691, 1841, 2800, 3700 ..... routers for PE role.

MultiVRF and CE role is supported down to 800 series routers.

Just an FYI.

I now have 2 x 2610XM running as PE and 1 x 2610XM running as P with 2 x 2500 series running as CE.

This works with the 2610XM. Check it.
