Can Cisco 7200VXR support for VPLS?

Hi all,

I check Cisco Nagivator Feature to find which IOS support for VPLS on Cisco Router 7200VXR and found that IOS image "c7200-spservicesk9-mz.122-33.SRD.bin" can do it as below;

- VPLS Autodiscovery, BGP-based

- VPLS Multiple VCs per Spoke

When I try to configure Virtual Forwarding Instance, it's not allow me to configure the above features (VPLS Autodiscovery: BGP Based, Manual Configuration of VPLS) and only support point-to-point configuration mode you can see it as below

R1#show version

Cisco IOS Software, 7200 Software (C7200-SPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.2(33)SRD, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

I can use "l2 vfi VPLS_A point-to-point" for Layer 2 VPN Pseudo-Wire Switching but not for VPLS multipoint configuration mode. Can Cisco 7200VXR support VPLS on this IOS image? If it can't, which IOS image can do it on this platform.

cisco 7200VXR doesnot support point to multipoint. For that you need to go with 7600 router.

VPLS is not supported on 7200, you can configure point to point here but not point to multipoint, you will have to move to 7600 for that.
