Re: VRF support on Cat6500

As far as I know the MSFC2 / PFC2 doesn't support multiple forwarding tables (vrf's). You can sort of work around this issue by using an OSM board to do forwarding decisions and externally trunk from the OSM blade to the other line cards.

Or get the new SUP720-bxl which should be capable of doing all the PE / P functions.

Re: VRF support on Cat6500

Afraid with the config you have you cant do vpns. You need an OSM card which you would then loop one of the ports on the OSM blade to a LAN port. MPLS isnt done on the MSFC2 but on the OSM blades or as the earlier post suggest the sup720-3bxl
