[j-nsp] Sending vpls broadcast packets over static LSP

Stupid question, but you do have DUT13 configured for the static LSP as well correct?

I'm trying to configure this (Static Point-to-Multipoint Flooding LSP
for vpls): http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/software/junos/junos95/swconfig-vpns/id-11510467.html#id-11512557

I have the static LSP up but the broadcast packets don't seem to go
over it. Any specific reason ? I've pasted what I think as
configs/show output needed. One thing I've done is that the static LSP
is just a plain static LSP  (i.e. there is no multiple endpoints for
it...) Let me know if more is required...Thanks in advance.
