[j-nsp] EX Routing Throughput

First of all apologies for my previous empty post, what I meant to say was the following;
We're running a few EX-4200's in a VC, what I found is;
- IPv6 works fine, without needing a license, although you do not (yet) have features as vrrp, and firewalling (these features are not implemented yet afaik, their unavailability has nothing to do with a license)
- for OSPFv3 you will need a license.
- you'll also need a license for using the MPLS features.

Hope this helps.

Ralph Smit.

some weeks ago I asked our sales if there are any news. He told me, that
you need a license for IPv6 for the ex- as well as for the m-series. So
I assume the situation hasn't changed yet.

I hope Juniper will rethink this strategy. We would love to use our 
ex-series switches to deploy IPv6 to our customers, but this step
would almost double the costs for each switch.

I played a little bit in our lab and got a message that an additional
license is needed when I actiated ospf v2. When I did the same stuff 
(added IPv6 addresses and configured route advertisement)
with static routes, no warning appeared. I asked our sales, if this
means that no license is required but he negated that.
