I'm configuring a PVDM2-24DM module for dial-up access and I'm not sure what to do with the loopback interface setting. The documentation ( ) states:
"Configuring the Loopback Interface
The loopback 0 interface is the interface that dial-in users access when dialing in to the network. Usually, all dial-in users are assigned to a single IP subnet. This subnet can be identified with the loopback 0 interface, a logical interface whose network number can be borrowed by each asynchronous dial-in interface."
Being that you also need to identify an IP pool for dial-in users to use I'm not sure what this does. Do I just identify the subnet that I'm using for the dial-in access. Would this work?
192.168.0.0 255.255.248.0 - loopback
192.168.4.50 - 192.168.4.73 - IP Pool (there are only 24 channels so I used a 24 IP pool)
The loopback does not have to be from the same ip pool range, however it can be if that is what you want. Either case will work.
