Bri 2 not working

Unanswered Question
Feb 5th, 2007

Dear all,

I have two location connected via lease line and backup by isdn bri. Location 1 has dialer interface and location 2 has bri interface, both of them r configured with ppp multilink and dialer load threshold, when I tested the link I am able to see in isdn status that only BRI0:1 is working and not able to find BRI0:2.

Can any help to troubleshoot why bri0:2 is not working.



I have this problem too.

Have you set the dialer load threshold to a very low value to ensure it should come up? Are you running pings or is there enough traffic to bring up the 2nd B channel?

show dialer is another useful command for troublsehooting this.

debug isdn q931 will show you the call setup messages, if the router is trying to use the 2nd channel. This will tell you if the far side is refusing the call.

Can you post your configuration?
