what is the difference between the two two commands?

There are two commands?

dialer hold-queue timeout 30

dialer hold-queue 10 timeoute 30

The first command doesn't specify the packet number,and what is the different between these two commands?

And if intersting outgoing packet number is more than 10 packets,but the connetion between two site still not set up,than all the other packets more than 10 packet will be droped,does it right? Why?

And what is the use of timeout parameter?


Re: what is the difference between the two two commands?

dialer hold-queue timeout

It allows interesting outgoing packets to be queued until a connection is default the outgoing packet queue is disabled. Yes, all packets more than configured in will be dropped.

option is the amount of time in seconds to queue the packets..In order to have the timeout specified, the packet count has to be specified (1-100 packets), zero means no hold queue.

Thanks, Mak.
