I have the routers configured and the test will run and complete. However, the initiator does not receive any packets back from the reflector.
So, I have an ACX2200 initiating and an MX480 reflecting. I have an Ethernet pseudowire configured (LDP-signaled L2circuit). The circuit is up and traffic flows as expected (the RFC 2544 test equipment works fine). Here are my configurations:
The configuration looks correct. Are you able to run the tests successfully? Ideally when pseudowire reflection is enabled on an interface, the router does not block the ingress or egress traffic through the test interface unless there is a firwall filter configured. Can you please share the output of the below commands to see what are we getting as the output?

I do have a filter configured on the MX and the ACX, which is most certainly blocking the traffic. I'm not sure what exactly to allow through the filter, so I have moved the testing to two ACX2200s on which there is no firewall filter configured.
The results simply yield that 0 RX packets were received back from the reflector. I have tried changing the test direction on ACX2 to "egress" with the same result. There must be something I am missing in configuring the test?
Plese let me know if you want to run RFC2544 measurements between PE and CE routers on the E-line service. Where the PE1 (MX) will initiate on the NNI facing interface and remote PE2 (ACX) will act as reflector?
Ethernet PW UNI Egrees
Or if you want to run RFC2544 between CE2 and PE2 ends?
PE2 (MX) will initiate on UNI facing interface and CE2 (ACX ) will act as refector, something like this:
Ethernet PW UNI INGRESS
Here's some tips you can try for follwing scenarios:
Initiator not sending packets:
Check configuration is applied correctly, destination is ping-able
Check NNI interface stats to see if the packets are being transmitted out the egress port
Check on PFE using ‘set bcbc “show c”’ command. Use ‘show bcmport-map’ command to find the egress port.
Reflector not reflecting packets:
Check packets are reaching the reflector ingress port. If not check drop in the network.
Check packets are reaching the RFC2544 engine port of the ethernet switch. Use ‘set bcbc “show c”’ command on the PFE console.
If packets are ingressing the RFC2544 engine port but not egressing, deactivate/activate rfc2544 configuration, or reset the FEB.
