LDP configured on Tunnel interface, neighbor up but no label exchange
Hi! I have a point-to-point connection from site A to site B and I first enabled MPLS and LDP on the point-to-point interface (the point-to-point link is provided by SP). Because of multicast issue on one side of the link, site-A has shown ldp discovery xmit/recv but site-B shows only xmit on its interface. I added tunnel interfaces on both sides and ran mpls on the tunnel, removed 'mpls ip' from the physical interface and I can see LDP neighborship up and discovery xmit/recv on both sides, however, there is no label exchange. This is driving me nuts. Is it possible that the underlying physical interface should still support multicast traffic for label exchange to happen? If I add mpls IP command back for physical interface in router A and mpls ldp igp autoconfig in router B back again, I can see labels being exchanged, and even though everything looks fine, I can't reach any networks that are connected off of site A from my mpls cloud.
sh mpls ldp disc on site B if mpls is ran on interface:
GigabitEthernet0/0/1.70 (ldp): xmit (This is because of multicast issue. Hellos can't be received from A, but A can both send & recv)
Thanks for your help!
UPDATE: This is working after adding routing via tunnel

loadbalancing is one of the more complex items in hardware forwarding. of course we have talked about it many years on cisco live (id 2904) with ever incrementing more detail. and there is the support forum article on loadbalancing.
