Not sure about "dialer map name" purpose

Hello,

I am trying to understand the purpose of the "dialer map name <hostname>" command in dialer and ISDN interface configurations, i.e., what is the reason and usage of this name mapping. Unfortunately, looking into IOS command guides and references did not help me much.

The documentation seems to suggest that this mapping is used to define a remote host name for authentication purposes. However, I don't understand why this would be necessary - both PAP and CHAP in PPP will provide the remote name whenever needed so there is no reason to explicitly specify the remote host name.

If anyone could help me with this issue I would be most grateful. Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Peter

Re: Not sure about "dialer map name" purpose

Hello,

If your using bri to bri connections the dialer map name will be used by default as the username if not specified in ppp exteded settings. If I remember right.
