Hi,

Hi,

A node should understand if it can send/accept labeled packet over any interafce. When LDP is used as label distribution protocol, enabling "mpls ip" will not only enable LDP (Control plane), but also allows the LSR to send/accept labeled packet over the interface. In case of Inter-AS Option B, BGP is used as label distribution protocol between ASBRs. So the command "mpls bgp forwarding" enables ASBR to send/accept labeled packet over the configured interface (whcih is towards the other ASBR).
