untagged prefixes...

read following on two forums:

Reference I

Untagged Label:- Untagged label in the LFIB when the IP prefix is a directly connected interface, a summary route or the next-hop router has not advertised the label.

Reference II............

Summary: you would see the Untagged label in the LFIB when the IP prefix is a directly connected interface, a summary route or the next-hop router has not advertised the label.

As per my understanding:

LFIB doesnot contain directly connected prefixes, since the local router requests a POP action from its adjacent LDP neighbors for directly connected prefixes.

Therefore it does not receive a labeled packet for directly connected prefixes and does not have have to lookup in LFIB for them..

Re: untagged prefixes...

Correct. Also an implicit null label will be associated to any summary routes. So the only case where you should see "untagged label" should be when you allocated a label to a prefix and you never received one from the downstream peer.
