This section explains the four major functions of LDP in more detail.
The Discovery of LSRs That Are Running LDP
LSRs that are running LDP send LDP Hello messages on all links that are LDP enabled. These are all the interfaces with mpls ip configured on them. First, however, you must enable CEF with the global ip cef command. Then you must enable LDP globally with the mpls ip command. Example 4-1 shows you the basic global and interface commands to enable LDP.
