Re: MPLS configuration

you can use the mpls ip and mpls label protocol ldp.

Every interface should be mpls ip and mpls label protocol ldp enabled

Re: MPLS configuration

Hello Swami,

this can be your reference

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SX/configuration/guide/pfc3mpls.html

you need to use a classless routing protocol (OSPF or IS-IS to be preferred over EIGRP for possible MPLS TE future applications).

you need to advertise in the IGP the loopbacks addresses used to talk LDP over the MPLS enabled links.

MPLS needs to be enabled on all core facing links with

mpls ip

Take care of MTU issues: MPLS increase the size of frames and this needs to be handled on routers, multilayer switches and also on L2 only switches on the path.

for MPLS L3 VPN applications you will need also Multiprotocol BGP

Hope to help

Giuseppe
