EoMPLS feature on 3725 or 2801 or 2801C?

Level 1
Level 1


I noticed in this post:  the author reports using EoMPLS feature on a 3725 platform with the interface command something like this: "xconnect 99 encapsulation mpls".  The Cisco feature navigator does not include the 3725 platform in this feature. I do notice that the feature is included on the 2801C platform.

Is there a silicon or hardware difference between an 2801 and a 2801C router?  Can anyone report running EoMPLS on their standard 2801 router?

Many Thanks!

I found EoMPLS (not port mode) supported on the 3745 platform with IOS c3745-spservicesk9-mz.124-15.T14.bin

Here is output from virtual router in GNS3 showing the fact:

Router(config-if)#xconnect ?

  A.B.C.D  IP address of peer

Router(config-if)#xconnect 99 ?

  encapsulation  Data encapsulation method

  pw-class       Pseudowire-class to use for encapsulation and protocol


Router(config-if)#xconnect 99 enc

Router(config-if)#xconnect 99 encapsulation ?

  l2tpv3  Use L2TPv3 encapsulation

  mpls    Use MPLS encapsulation

Router(config-if)#xconnect 99 encapsulation mp

Router(config-if)#xconnect 99 encapsulation mpls ?

  pw-class  Optional pseudowire-class to use for advanced configuration


Router(config-if)#xconnect 99 encapsulation mpls


Xconnect configuration commands:

  backup   Xconnect backup configuration commands

  default  Set a command to its defaults

  exit     Exit from Xconnect submode configuration

  no       Negate a command or set its defaults

Hi aimarchitect,
i tried searching for the cisco image you mentioned in this thread {C3745-SPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.4(15)T14, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)} but have not found anything... do you mind sharing the website where you downloaded this from?
