Tunneling trunk through L2MPLS VPN

Dear All ,

I created a L2tunnel between two of my PE's and it  is working fine . The Vlans are configured in dot1Q sub interfaces and then it is connected to trunk port of the switch . From the switch i can ping the other side PC ,so the l2 tunnel is working fine

Now my question is whether is there is any way to tunnel multiple VLAN through this ? I mean can we tunnel trunk link through the mentioned config or with xconnect command ?

Hi Haris,

You want to carry the entire trunk across the network by using port based eompls. You simply need to configure the xconnect under the physical (main) interface instead of the subinterface.

Re: Tunneling trunk through L2MPLS VPN

another option it might be done by using QinQ at the CE edge to tunnel the trunk under one VLAN ID and at the PE you can tunnel this vlan over L2VPN using one VLAN ID this similar concept to H-VPLS
