I'm tring to test interoperability between Cisco an Juniper Boxes about
Let assume that I've an MPLS backbone, where the label distribution protocol used is RSVP, then MPLS-TE tunnels, I do not want to enable LDP on my backbone.
Well, as far as I know, pseudowires requires LDP as control protocol... then:
from Juniper side I've enable a feature that they calling "LDP-Tunneling" in order to connect different LDP "islands" through my RSVP Backbone.
Is there a similar feature into IOS? what I've tested is to configure targeted LDP and MPLS-TE tunnels, but seems to do not work fine.
What is happening is that Juniper and Cisco established correctly the LDP targeted session, but discarding the FEC into the advertisement...
Any ideas? Have anyone already tested it before???
Any suggestions is more than appreciated,
Can you explain this last statement. Do you mean that you were using the same configuration before between two Juniper boxes and it worked fine without configuring shortcut?
As far as I am aware of, the shortcut would be required for any prefixes downstream from the LSP tail end, whether the tail end is a Juniper box or not. It would help if you could provide more details on this scenario so we try to understand why it was working even without the shortcuts configuration.
the shortcut is required if you want that every prefix known by the IGP have been installed in the inet.3, but this should not be a must.
If everything is known by the peer loopback address (through recursive lookup), the default behaviour and policy should work fine...
and best Regards
