Hi


If you are defining backup interface command under the serial interface then you wont be able to manually dial out the isdn interface.


Also when doing a normal routine test by making the serial interface manually shutdown you wont be able to test the bri coz the BRI interface will also go down (because of the command configured under the primary interface)..


I would suggest to change the ip route pointing towards your Bri interface instead of pointing towards the next hop ip.


once you are done with that then remove the backup command under the serial interface and check..
