Configuring L2TP Dial-Out

L2TP dial-out configuration tasks include the following sets of tasks:

Creating an L2TP Dial-Out Session

You can define an L2TP dial-out target by using the l2tp dial-out target command. When the router receives packets destined for the target, it creates a dial-out session.

To create a dial-out session:

When you create a target, you must specify the following:

Use the default version to remove the L2TP dial-out route. Use the no version to remove the L2TP dial-out route or target.

Specifying the Maximum Timeout Period for Establishing an L2TP Dial-Out Session

You can optionally set the maximum time allowed for successful establishment of an L2TP dial-out session.

To set the maximum time allowed for attempts to establish L2TP dial-out sessions:

Specifying the Duration for an L2TP Dial-Out Session to Remain in Dormant State

You can optionally specify the duration for which the dial-out session stays in the dormant state waiting for a new trigger after the associated L2TP outgoing call ends.

To set how long the dial-out session waits in the dormant state for a new trigger after the associated L2TP outgoing call ends:

Specifying the Maximum Triggers to Buffer for an L2TP Dial-Out Session

You can optionally set the maximum number of buffered trigger packets held for any dial-out session pending the successful establishment of the L2TP session. Once the session is established, the buffered trigger packets are transmitted.

To set the maximum number of trigger packets held in buffer while the dial-out session is being established:

Deleting an L2TP Dial-Out Session

You can manually delete a dial-out session to close any L2TP outgoing call associated with the dial-out session.

To delete a dial-out session:

Resetting an L2TP Dial-Out Session

You can reset a dial-out session by forcing it to the dormant state. After you reset a dial-out session, any L2TP outgoing call associated with that session is closed.

To force the dial-out session to the dormant state where it remains until the dormant timer expires or it receives a new trigger:
