I have a question about the NAME portion of the dialer map statement.
ie. dialer map ip 10.1.1.1 name RouterA broad 5551212
What exactly does the 'name RouterA' do for me? And before everyone
jumps up and says that this is the name used for ppp authentication
purposes, I ask, have you tried this? I have a lab with ISDN circuits
and regardless of what I put for name xxxxxx, my authentication
completes successfully. If I leave the 'name' part out altogether, I
still authenticate. In my experience in the lab, it seems to have no
value whatsoever. Does someone know what this is really for? And if
so, is there some little test I can run that will show me what this is
for so as to convince myself that this actually does something? The
only purpose to me seems to be to put a comment in the map statement to
indicate who we are talking to.
