Creating a Profile Before Configuring L2TP Dial-Out

Create a profile that the router uses to create the dynamic PPP and IP interfaces on the LNS. The profile specifies parameters that are common to all dial-out sessions that use the profile. The following is an example of a typical profile configuration.

  1. Create a profile.
    host1(config)#profile dialOut host1(config-profile)#
  2. Specify the interface used for dialout.
    host1(config-profile)#ip unnumbered loopback 0/0
  3. Specify the virtual router for the dial-out user’s IP interface.
    host1(config-profile)#ip virtual-router lns
  4. Specify the authentication mechanism.
    host1(config-profile)#ppp authentication chap
