Multilink PPP Problem

Hello,

I configured a Multilink Interface with two Serial Interfaces Ser1a-Ser1b and Ser2a-Ser2b. This Configuration works between 1 and 2 Days then no IP Packet goes over the Multilink Interface, in this State all Interfaces Multilink1a, Multilink1b, Ser1a, Ser1b, Ser2a an Ser2b are up. I reset one of the Serial Interfaces, then the Multilink is ok.

The Configuration is:

interface Multilink1

ip address xxx.yyy.zzz.xxx xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

no cdp enable

ppp multilink

multilink-group 1

interface Serial2/0

bandwidth 1920

no ip address

encapsulation ppp

no ip mroute-cache

no keepalive

no peer default ip address

no fair-queue

no cdp enable

ppp multilink

multilink-group 1

hold-queue 4096 in

hold-queue 4096 out

!

interface Serial2/1

bandwidth 1920

no ip address

encapsulation ppp

no ip mroute-cache

no keepalive

no peer default ip address

no fair-queue

no cdp enable

ppp quality 80

ppp multilink

multilink-group 1

hold-queue 4096 in

hold-queue 4096 out

What am i doing wrong?

Any Help is welcome

Regards

Thomas

Re: Multilink PPP Problem

on S2/1 you are using ppp quality 80 this could be the reason it stops functioning , when you reset the interface the reliability is reset .

Are there any erros on s2/1 or what it is attached to ?

Re: Multilink PPP Problem

Hello,

thank you for your fast response. I made a mistake with copy and paste "ppp quality is configured on all serial interfaces and in the moment we are using the multilink with only one serial connection without any problems. Only with two serials the problem occurs.

I have no errors on the serial interfaces.

Attached on the serial interfaces are Controlware Primus G.703 -> X21 Converter.

Re: Multilink PPP Problem

what do the serial interfaces on the remote side look like ?

Re: Multilink PPP Problem

Hello,

the configuration of the Interfaces is identical.

Re: Multilink PPP Problem

can you paste in a sh interface serial x from both ends

Re: Multilink PPP Problem

you are taking errors and carrier transitions across this link , I would clear the counters and watch it , when it happens again look to see if you received a burst of errors or carrier transtions that could have caused this , If you have an internal CSU you can do a sh service-module serialx performance stats , this will give you the last 96 15 minute intervals and how many errors occured during these times .

Re: Multilink PPP Problem

Hi

it's a IOS bug ,try to upgrade the ios or try

to put fair-queue on all interface

Re: Multilink PPP Problem

Hello,

we are using IOS Version 12.2(1)on Cisco 3640. Do you know the release in which the bug was fixed.

Re: Multilink PPP Problem

Hello,

thank you for your response.

Can you tell me why enabling fair-queue can solve the problem.
