This document defines a method to verify the configuration parameters of static pseudowires (PW). Since a static PW can be independently provisioned at each end of the PW there is a potential for a configuration parameter mismatch and this can result in the PW not being operational. This document introduces a configuration checking protocol to simplify the provisioning and ease trouble shooting.
