I noticed in this post: https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2100502 the author reports using EoMPLS feature on a 3725 platform with the interface command something like this: "xconnect 126.96.36.199 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?
I found EoMPLS (not port mode) supported on the 3745 platform with IOS c3745-spservicesk9-mz.124-15.T14.bin
