How to setup dial on demand for ISDN backup line

For better detection of link failure, you should use FR end to end keepalives.

Also here is some link for configuring dial backup through ISDN for a frame-relay cloud.

Is there a way to find out when the primary line fails so you can fix the primary line? We don't want to find out when both lines fail.

Thanks.

1. You can check syslog messages on the syslog server.

2. You can use a monitoring tool like WhatsUp. This will provide yu a GUI that will reflect line fail via a color change of the icons. It can also be configured to send e-mail in case of failure.

We're usig WhatsUp Gold for this purpose. Evaluation version can be downloaded from www.ipswitch.com . Also you can find cheaper and less sophisticated tools (as long as all you want is an e-mail in case of ping fails) try www.download.com .

if the BRI is on the same router as the FR connection, you can configure the BRI interface and then add "backp interface" & "backup delay" commands to the Serial interface.

If you are using seperate router, you can use the "dialer watch-group" added to the BRI to watch specific routes
