Assuming that the routed MPLS network has already been configured as in the previous example, the commands used to create the VPLS on LSR1 and LSR4 follow. The nc-university-vpn is a point-to-point VPLS, since only two peers are participating.

The following command creates the VPLS with VPN ID 35. This command must be issued on both LSR1 and LSR4:

create l2vpn vpls nc-university-vpn fec-id-type pseudo-wire 35
The following command enables the VPLS instance specified by the vpls_name:
enable l2vpn [vpls [ vpls_name | all ]

On LSR1, configure the local VLAN service and the VPLS peer:

configure l2vpn vpls nc-university-vpn add service vlan unc-charlotte
configure l2vpn vpls nc-university-vpn add peer 192.168.0.4

On LSR4, configure the local VLAN service and the VPLS peer:

configure l2vpn vpls nc-university-vpn add service vlan unc-wilmington
configure l2vpn vpls nc-university-vpn add peer 192.168.0.1
