Hello everyone, first post on the forums and quite new to cisco world. :)
Please forgive my english, it is not my native language. :)
Now my question, i have a 827 with a pppoa dsl line. My provider charges me for the time connection stays up, so i would configure my router to work in dial-on-demand routing. I'have read many threads and many pages here on the cisco website and made a long search on google finding a sort of configuration (see attached) that (according to me!) could be working but it doesn't. All the traffic is considered interesting and the oly counter i can make to work is "ppp timeout idle".
Tks in advance to everyone could help.

I have already done a debug on dialer packets and have discovered that before making connection, interesting traffic is based on internal lan addresses, once the connection is up and the dialer has is own ip address, interesting traffic is based on this one. I've already changed my dialer list to work even with the external address but now it seems there is no dialer idle timeout even if the command is properly configured.
When ia type a "sh caller timeouts" i see no timers.
Another thing i have observed is that typing a "sh dialer" i can't see any active connections when line and protocols are up.
It seems that when dialer makes the call it passes all the work to a virtual access interface that is not configurable nor is based on dialer's settings.
i'm sorry if this sounds obvious to you but this is the first time i work with those routers and some things are not so obvious to me. :)
