IPExpert CoD: MPLS & LDP

This post contains my notes from an old version of IPX Class on Demand by Joe Astorino.

# hiding MPLS topology by just incrementing TTL 1 time when reaching the CE
router(config)# no ip mpls propagate-ttl

MPLS MTU is automatically decreased on LAN interfaces and increased on WAN interfaces.

Default mpls mtu is 1512 which supports 3 labels; MPLS MTU can be set by mpls mtu x

LDP router-id should be routable on network.

Connected routes are advertised as implicit-null label for PHP on upstream router

router(config)# mpls ldp neighbor ip labels accept acl
router(config)# mpls ldp tcp pak-priority //Kinda like setting QoS for LDP
!
#Like "ip accounting"
router(config-if)# mpls accounting experimental input/output
router(config-if)# mpls netflow egress
!
router# show mpls ldp binding // LIB
router# show mpls forwarding table // LFIB
router# show ip route // RIB
router# show ip cef ip detail //FIB

To clear LIB:

router(config)# no mpls ip
router(config)# mpls ip

PHP is the default.
