I am trying to setup a basic lab. I have the following setup:-
CE1->PE1->P1->PE2->CE2. I have attached the relevant configs.
All the CE & PE routers are 2600's and the P1 router is a 7206VXR. I am running OSPF in the MPLS network between the PE & P routers. I am using ldp as the label distribution protocol. BGP is running between the CE & PE routers.
I have a couple of questions:-
1) Basic MPLS setup. I think this is working in that if i ping from the LAN side of the CE1 to the LAN side of the CE2 it works. The P1 router has no knowledge of these subnets. However a "sh mpls forwarding-table" command on the PE routers shows no bytes tag switched and yet if i do a "debug mpls packet" on the P1 router i can see the packets going through. If the P1 router doesn't know the LAN subnets then am i right to assume it must be label switching ?
2) The configs attached are to test a VPN setup. I have the MPLS & VPN architectures book and i have gone through all the show commands to troubleshoot and it all looks right. The routes are in the vrf routing table, the mpls forwarding table looks okay but i cannot ping from CE1 to CE2.
If i debug on the P1 router i can see the packets coming in with 2 labels as expected but i can't see them being transmitted.
I have done some searching and know that 2600's are not officially supported but my understanding is that the features i need are on the routers. I have tried a number of different IOS versions but to no avail.
Any help would be much appreciated
