comment Adding ip routes for the additional WAN IPs on Cisco IOS?
@GeorgeBailey, I think the salient question is why the PC must access 888.0.0.8 to begin with. BTW, most of us would have an easier time understanding the question if our brains we're revolting from the illegal 888.x.x.x and 999.x.x.x addresses you've used. I understand you're trying to make this generic, but actually IETF generously provided some documentation IP address space: see RFC 5737

This is not a hostile comment at all, but I'm trying to understand... isn't this question a poll?

Since he is in configuration mode you'll need to add "do" in front of the "show running-conf" command

comment MPLS: choice of initial label for an incoming packet
I'm sorry, you didn't ask for whether two packets with the same IP destination are forwarded through the same tunnel. You asked for which packet fields are used to determine the label of an incoming packet. What you're missing is that mpls is a vague term... it isn't a single service, it includes a family of services, and at least three different protocols are used to bind labels to those services (LDP, RSVP, BGP, to name some off the top of my head)

comment MPLS: choice of initial label for an incoming packet
The question is extremely vague about what MPLS services are even running; thus it's impossible to say how labels are allocated.
