On your vlan units, use:
This will strip the vlan tag off the packet before encapsulating it
across the wire, and re-add a new vlan tag of potentially a different
value on the other side. This of course requires hardware which supports
it, i.e. MX, T, M120, M7i/M10i with CFEB-E, or I believe even SFP based
GE PICs on FPC-E on first generation routers will work. What definitely
won't work are the original fixed-optics SX, LX, or LH PICs.
Also in my experience it was actually much less of a hassle to use CCC
than to do local-switching on a l2circuit, especially if you're trying
to automate the deployment of the circuits (l2circuit local switching
has a really weird and config hierarchy). It's also simpler for the
router to run CCC for local switching.
