    Trying to establish a xconnect on ASR9K but lack understanding

    jalal

      Hi;

       

      Please share an insight as to  what an ethernet flow point is (is it the same thins as EVC as per MEF)? I am trying to configure MPLS based point to point psw betwen two PE boxes and some how ca not understand a configuration. It is listed below. PLease do a line by line parse of it.

       

      interface GigabitEthernet0/1/0/19  ------ > choose an interface

       

      description XXX                         ----------> description of teh interface

       

      negotiation auto                        -----------> not sure what this is

       

      transceiver permit pid all            ------------> no idea about this

       

      l2transport                                -------------> enable L2 transport on this interface?

       

      !

       

       

       

      xconnect group AAAAA              ------------> create a  cross connect  group of some sort

       

        p2p  DDDD                              ------------> point to point connection i guess and naming it as DDDDD

       

         interface GigabitEthernet0/1/0/19 -----------> source interface

       

         neighbor 66.97.18.31 pw-id 806 ---------------> neighbor with which we are establishing the pw and pw's id

       

         !

       

         description BBBBBB--------------------------------> teh description of the crossconnect

       

       

      Please assisst.
