Dnis pattern inside a vpdn-group

Hello all,

i have a dnis-based dial-in vpdn configuration on my LAC and need to add 10 consecutive dnis numbers to this group.

Any way to make a single wildcard entry to do it, instead of 10 separate entries? All my attempts to use a dial-peer like pattern failed and only with a specific dnis full match the session was indeed identified and forwarded to LNS.

The config is something like this:

vpdn-group test


protocol l2tp

dnis <>

dnis <>

initiate-to ip X.X.X.X.


Thanks in advance.

To configure a tunnel switch (or multihop node) that supports the VPDN Multihop by DNIS feature, you need to configure a tunnel switch that contains both the LNS and LAC portions of the VPDN. Use the following commands:

1. enable

2. configure {terminal | memory | network}

3. username {local-name | remote-hostname} password secret

4. vpdn enable

5. vpdn multihop

6. vpdn-group name

7. vpdn-group subcommands (accept-dialin and terminate-from for the incoming portion of the tunnel switch, and request-dialin and initiate-to for the outgoing portion, for example)

8. vpdn search-order {dnis | multihop-hostname | domain} (optional step that should be executed only when it is necessary to change the default search order)
