I am trying to do a very simple setup.

we have one provider connecting to our Carrier Ethernet Metro. 

provider is sending me with 3 VLAN which i usually take them inside one vman ( port is configured untag) and take it through our Metro.

now what i am trying to archive is to allow 3 Vlans with specific tag ( like is provider tried to send more vlans or different tags than what was agreed on) these vlans should not enter my VMAN.

I would use CEP rather than using CNP with 'cvid' ACL.

Thanks for the replay Kevin,

but will it have the same effect as using CNP. one more thing, the termination of these vlans will be on a L3 router and its configured as double tag on the router

I think packets are doubled tagged as CNP when they are transported in a VMAN.

Yes this is the scenario which we have.

Question is can we do CEP and transport them and do the double tagging ?!
