the way your ISDN is configured now, the second line will already kick in when the load on your first B-channel is at less than 10%, so I am not sure that you connection is being dropped because the second line comes up. Check how many BRI channels you have up with the
show ip int brief
command. If you definitely do not want multilink, take the ppp multilink statements out of the physical BRI and the Dialer configuration.
Thanks for the reply. I had a go at removing the ppp multilink settings out of the dialer and BRI 0, as well as the dialer load-threshold statement and it worked OK. It didn't try to bring up a second line and the connection stayed up. I'll have a go with the dialer redial command tonight.
BTW, I have "dialer idle-timeout 360", but it didn't drop the line after about 20 minutes. My suspicion is that it was probably the odd bit of chatter which was keeping the connection alive, but I've no idea what was causing it. At my end, I have an NT workstation acting as a file server (which wasn't trying to access the Internet) and an XP notebook which was. Oddly enough, when the link was active, my notebook lost it's connection to the server. I suspect it was something to do with the fact that on the LAN connection, I had set the DNS server to point to my ISP's DNS server rather than it being blank, as after the ISDN connection was down (by switching off the router since the link wouldn't timeout) I blanked the DNS server IP address and the connection to the server worked OK.
I guess this forums not the right place to go into the windows side of this any suggestions?
