I have to test a simple point to point PE - PE MPLS VPN setup.
To keep it short - there are certain reasons we need to talk MPLS between these two PE's (VRF lite with VLANS is not an option)
A must have is to not use LDP, TDP or any other label distribution protocol between these routers.
So we would use static label ipv4 bindings on both PE routers for our next hops and MP-BGP to advertise the VPN labels.
As far as I understand the interface command "mpls ip" is mandatory because the interface must be aware of the MPLS ether type...
Now I am confused because I found no way to disable LDP and only use static bindings in my setup?
Can you help me out to understand the missing part here?
Thanks in advance
Yes, no mpls ldp advertise-labels will help you here and then you can create an ACL to match the ip add for which you want to generate labels.:
