Basically, Soft loop is a logical loop on the CSU/DSU and Hardware loop is a loop back connecter with WAN interface ,for example, V.35.

Re: Soft Loop & Hard Loop?

in the above url we read: Note: All loopback testing is done with hdlc encapsulation.

does this mean we can't make a soft loop with PPP encapsulation?
