Dialer-watch questions

I have 2 questions about Dialer-watch:

(1) In some of your examples you have a second Dialer-map statement that matches the route being watched, in other examples you just have the one (regular) Dialer-map statement. Why?

(2) In the Dialer-list you usually deny the routing protocol, but permit ip anything else. If there is ip traffic on the BRI, then the idle-timeout will continually be reset, which means the primary will never be checked to see if it is back, which means the backup will never go down. Wouldn't it be better to deny everything so the primary's status will be checked every idle-timeout?

Re: Dialer-watch questions

1. The dialer-watch map is required to allow

dialing to occur in the event that the route

is lost and we are not yet connected to

anything.

2. We check to see if the route has returned

every idle-timer seconds; if it has, the backup

connection will be torn down. If it has not, we

wait another idle-timer window and then check again

for the watched route.
