we've been terminating l2tp users on our LNS using a standart virtual-template and there are around 5K subscribers on it.
So, we'd like to implement a ppp multilink for bonding subscribers to increase their throughput. Currently there is no command like "ppp multilink" enabled under the virtual-template interface. As far as i know there is no way to enable "pp multilink" per user unless pre-authentication is used on the lac side, which is not possible in our case since lac belongs to the incumbent operator, so here are my questions:
1.) is there a way to enable ppp multilink per user on the lns side ?
2.) what happens if i globally enable the "ppp multilink" command under the global virtual template interfece considering 5K users are terminated by it.
3.) Will ppp multilink use per packet or per destination load sharing ?
Thanks for the answer but as i mentioned previously in my mail, this feature doesn't match our case since pre-authentication is done on the lac side and lac is under the control of the incumbent operator.
As multilink is a part of the lcp negotiation, i don't think that such a feature could exist to be configured on the lns side.
However i really wonder what will happen if enable ppp multilink globally under the virtual template interface which is in charge of terminating thousand of subscribers that most of them don't need multilink.
On the other hand could you more detail please "each packet is fragmented " statement ? Do you mean that each packet is splitted into two equal packets and then sent over each link, looks like a different approach of per packet switching.
