Example: Configuring MLPPP Fragmentation and Reassembly for an MLPPP Bundle

This example shows you how to configure MLPPP fragmentation and reassembly for an MLPPP bundle.

Requirements

This example uses the following software and hardware components:.

Overview

If you issue the ppp fragmentation command or the ppp reassembly command in the context of an MLPPP bundle, the command affects all the current member links in the bundle. This enables you to issue a single command for the entire bundle instead of having to issue individual commands for each member link in the bundle. Any member links added to the bundle after you issue an MLPPP configuration command in the bundle context are not affected by the command.

Configuring MLPPP Fragmentation and Reassembly for All Member Links

The following commands configure MLPPP fragmentation and reassembly for all member links in the bundle group1. If you add a member link to the group1 bundle after you issue the ppp fragmentation or ppp reassembly command, MLPPP fragmentation and reassembly for this link and any member links subsequently added to the bundle is not enabled.

  1. Configure the MLPPP bundle.
    host1(config)#interface mlppp group1
  2. Enable fragmentation and reassembly and optionally specify the maximum allowable fragment size to use and the administrative MRRU value.
    host1(config-if)#ppp fragmentation 128 host1(config-if)#ppp reassembly 1590 host1(config-if)#exit
