After a successful tunnel connection and establishment, individual sessions can be created. Each session is a single data stream. After successful session establishment, data corresponding to that session (pseudowire) can be transferred. If a session is down, the pseudowire associated with it is shut down as well.

Use the (profile-context) instance to manually configure a L2TPv3 manual session. To navigate to the L2TPv3 manual session configuration mode, use the following command in the profile context:

<DEVICE>(config-profile-default-rfs4000)#l2tpv3 manual-session <SESSION-NAME>
nx9500-6C8809(config-profile-default-rfs4000)#l2tpv3 manual-session test
nx9500-6C8809(config-profile default-rfs4000-l2tpv3-manual-session-test)#
nx9500-6C8809(config-profile default-rfs4000-l2tpv3-manual-session-test)#?
