how to create a virtual template


Can someone tell me how to create a virtual template?

I need to setup one for the ISDN users to dial in to our network.

Does my Virtual-Template config get created around my Serial config?

I have dialers created for my clients to dialin as ISDN backups.

Thanks for help.

Here is the config for my serial interface:

interface Serial1/1:15

description isdn-pri

no ip address

no ip redirects

no ip unreachables

no ip proxy-arp

encapsulation ppp

dialer pool-member 1

dialer pool-member 200

isdn switch-type primary-net5

isdn incoming-voice modem

isdn calling-number 1900

peer default ip address pool dialin

no cdp enable

ppp authentication pap chap callin

Re: how to create a virtual template

virtual profile?Instance of a unique virtual access interface created dynamically when certain users call in and torn down dynamically when the call disconnects. A specific user's virtual profile can be configured by a virtual template interface, user-specific interface configuration stored on an AAA server, or both a virtual template interface and user-specific interface configuration from AAA.

Config change:

Interface virtual-template 1

ip unnumbered Ethernet 0

Virtual-profile virtual-template 1 question does the template know which PHYSICAL interface to use? We have a PRI that is configured to a serial interface.

So what happens when an ISDN user dials in bearing in mind that we have IAS running which does the authorization.
