I am in the process of setting up a lab that consists of an MPLS cloud. Within the lab design, I want to be able to connect to the CE, via telnet, from the PE.
I have successfully been able to do this on one "end" of the MPLS/VPN, however I am having difficulty on the other "end". Logic would dictate that I would copy the config from the working connection, change the ip addresses and be done with it. Unfortunately this is not the case.
Additionally, on the working PE-CE connection, the PE is a 2611 running Version 12.3(26) and on the non-working PE-CE connection the PE is a 3640 running Version 12.3(11)YZ2.
Attached are the configurations. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I forgot to add the config for the not working connection.
Here is the config"
ip vrf vpn-mtb
route-target export 1:100
route-target import 1:100
no ip domain lookup
mpls label protocol ldp
tag-switching tdp router-id Loopback0

If you simply need to telnet to the CE from the local PE, the simplest way would be to use the following command "telnet 188.8.131.52 /vrf vpn-mtb".
BTW, you do not need to enable MPLS on the PE-CE link. You should therefore remove "tag-switching ip" from FastEthernet1/0.
