Monitoring Dial-out Targets within the Current VR Context


Display configured dial-out targets within the current virtual router context.

This command displays aspects of the dial-out state machine and details about the dial-out routes themselves. This section presents sample output. The actual output on your router may differ significantly.


To display general information for all targets within the virtual router:

host1:dialout#show l2tp dial-out target
Target         Status     Active Sessions
------         ------     --------------   up         14    up         10

To display detailed information about a particular target, specify the target IP address and mask:

host1:dialout#show l2tp dial-out target
Operational status: up
Active sessions: 10
Total triggers: 127
Failed sessions: 2
Connected sessions: 8

To display aggregate counts for targets in each of the possible operational and administrative states:

host1:dialout#show l2tp dial-out target summary

To display detailed configuration, state, and statistics:

host1:dialout#show l2tp dial-out target detail

To display information about the operational or administrative state:

host1:dialout#show l2tp dial-out target state inService

To displays dial-out information across all virtual routers:

host1:dialout#show l2tp dial-out target allVirtualRouters

Note: The level of a user’s permission determines the use of the allVirtualRouters option. For example, if you have permission to view only the current virtual router, then that is all that is displayed when you enter a command.
