Hi anyone please check for me the following config if I want to enable dial out and dial in on a BRI port of the 1720 router.

interface BRI0

! Dial out

ip address

encapsulation ppp

dialer idel-timeout 60

dialer map ip name KajangRtr broadcast 87321624

dialer load-threshold 80 either

dialer rotary-group 1


!Dial in

Please help to verify my above config for the dial out and dial in portions.

Re: Dial out and dialin over the same BRI port of a Cisco Router

You will find it much easier to accomplish what you want if you use dialer profiles rather than legacy dialer maps. See, for example, // Note that this example does not do dial out and dial in, but it does show you what is meant by a "dialer profile" which is the important concept. Dial in versus dial out is then trivial to configure, just define each in its own dialer.

Good luck and have fun!
