NAME

mpeMPLS Provider Edge

SYNOPSIS

pseudo-device mpe

DESCRIPTION

The mpe interface is a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Provider Edge pseudo-device used to enter and leave an MPLS domain.
An mpe interface can be created at runtime using the ifconfig mpeN create command or by setting up a hostname.if(5) configuration file for netstart(8). The interface itself can be configured with ifconfig(8); see its manual page for more information.
mpe interfaces support the following unique ioctls:
 
 
SIOCSETLABEL
Encapsulate packets entering this interface in MPLS using the specified label.
 
 
SIOCGETLABEL
Report the label that packets entering this interface will be tagged with.
