Example: Configuring a Multilink Interface (NSM Procedure)

 

On available devices, you can configure and access multiple serial links called a bundle, through a virtual interface called a multilink interface. The multilink interface emulates a physical interface for the transport of frames.

In this example, you combine two WAN subinterfaces into an multilink interface. The name of the multilink interface must be mlid_num. For example, multilink interface names can be ml1, ml2, and so on.

    • Double-click slot 2 to display the slot configuration dialog box. Select a card type.

    • Click OK to save the slot configuration.

  2. Configure the multilink interface:

    • In the device navigation tree, select Network > Interface.

    • Click the Add icon and select Multilink Interface. The General Properties screen appears.

  3. Configure the following options:

    • For Name, accept the default.

    • For Zone, select Trust.
