    Configuring Static MLPPP

    The following tasks show you how to configure static MLPPP:

    Before You Configure Static MLPPP

    Before you begin configuring static MLPPP, you must configure the physical line interfaces to be aggregated by MLPPP. See the following chapters:

    • Configuring Channelized T3 Interfaces in JunosE Physical Layer Configuration Guide
    • Configuring T3 and E3 Interfaces in JunosE Physical Layer Configuration Guide
    • Configuring Channelized OCx/STMx Interfaces in JunosE Physical Layer Configuration Guide

    The procedures described in Configuring Static MLPPP and Adding Member Links to a Multilink Bundle assume that a physical line interface has been configured.

    Configuring Static MLPPP and Adding Member Links to a Multilink Bundle

    Static MLPPP configuration consists of two general tasks, each with several subtasks.

    To configure static MLPPP:

    1. Create the member links to be aggregated into a multilink bundle.
      1. From Global Configuration mode, specify the individual interface on which you want to configure MLPPP.
        host1(config)#interface serial 2/0:1/1
      2. Specify MLPPP as the encapsulation method on the interface.
        host1(config-if)#encapsulation mlppp
      3. (Optional) Specify the keepalive timeout value for the member link interface.
        host1(config-if)#ppp keepalive 50
      4. (Optional) Specify the authentication method for the member link interface.
        host1(config-if)#ppp authentication pap chap
      5. (Optional) Enable hash-based link selection instead of the default round-robin link selection for the member link interface.
        host1(config-if)#ppp hash-link-selection
    2. Add member links to a multilink bundle.
      1. Define the MLPPP bundle.
        host1(config)#interface mlppp group1
      2. Add each member link.
        host1(config-if)#member-interface serial 2/0:1/1
      3. Assign an IP address to the MLPPP bundle.
        host1(config-if)#ip address 10.10.100.1 255.255.255.0
      4. (Optional) Specify the keepalive timeout value for the MLPPP network interface (the entire MLPPP bundle).
        host1(config-if)#ppp keepalive 50
      5. (Optional) Specify the authentication method for the MLPPP network interface (the entire MLPPP bundle).
        host1(config-if)#ppp authentication pap chap
      6. (Optional) Enable hash-based link selection instead of the default round-robin link selection for the MLPPP network interface (the entire MLPPP bundle).
        host1(config-if)#ppp hash-link-selection
