I'm having problems getting multilink ppp to work on a single ISDN BRI connection between a main site and a remote site. My objective is for the full 128K bandwidth to be available as soon as a connection is made. There are no problems making the connection from either site; however, the multilink capability does not seem to be working.
Below are configurations of each router and some interface information during a session that should bring up the second B channel.
Any ideas as to why the multilink capabiliby is not working?
I would use "dialer idle-timeout" command under interface BRI0/0 configuration at main site router, and set a very high idle timer.
That document says:
"When MLP is configured and you want a multilink bundle to be connected indefinitely, use the dialer idle-timeout command to set a very high idle timer. (The dialer-load threshold 1 command no longer keeps a multilink bundle of n links connected indefinitely, and the dialer-load threshold 2 command no longer keeps a multilink bundle of two links connected indefinitely.)"
Dear Jose: Thanks for the information. I have made some progress: the second link attempts to come up, but the interface dials the first number--which is in use--and gets a busy signal. Attached are the changes I made to the bri 0/0 interface and the output of a debug session.
