  • Hi Ashse,

    This command selects one method of naming a multilink bundle, please check the links below for more details:

    Hi ashse,

    As per Cisco documentation:
    Use the endpoint keyword to name the bundle as defined by the endpoint discriminator. This option can support multiple clients using the same authentication username since the bundle name is assigned independently of the client username.

    Actually it is how you would like to name the multilink bundle after working with another end.
    In this example R1-Multilink-R2 and multilink bundle-name endpoint is configured, now look the bundle name, it is R2 which is another end.
    R1#show ppp multilink
    Multilink1, bundle name is R2
      Endpoint discriminator is R2
      Bundle up for 00:02:32, total bandwidth 1544, load 1/255
      Receive buffer limit 12000 bytes, frag timeout 1000 ms
        0/0 fragments/bytes in reassembly list
        0 lost fragments, 0 reordered
        0/0 discarded fragments/bytes, 0 lost received
        0x0 received sequence, 0x0 sent sequence
      Member links: 1 active, 0 inactive (max not set, min not set)
        Se0/0, since 00:02:32
    No inactive multilink interfaces
    !
    R2#show ppp multilink

    Multilink1, bundle name is R1
      Endpoint discriminator is R1
      Bundle up for 00:05:08, total bandwidth 1544, load 1/255
      Receive buffer limit 12000 bytes, frag timeout 1000 ms
        0/0 fragments/bytes in reassembly list
        0 lost fragments, 0 reordered
        0/0 discarded fragments/bytes, 0 lost received
        0x0 received sequence, 0x0 sent sequence
      Member links: 1 active, 0 inactive (max not set, min not set)
        Se0/0, since 00:05:08
    No inactive multilink interfaces

    If you like to assing the name based on authenticated clients username use multilink bundle-name authenticated.

    Any queries?

    HAPPY STUDY

  • Hi ashe,

    Another endpoint authenticated example, this might more clears your doubt:

    R1(config)#multilink bundle-name authenticated
    R1#show run | in aaa|username
    aaa new-model
    aaa authentication login default none
    aaa authentication ppp PPPAUTH local
    aaa session-id common
    username client1 password 0 cisco
    R1#show run int multilink1
    Building configuration...

    Current configuration : 170 bytes
    !
    interface Multilink1
     ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
     ppp authentication chap PPPAUTH
     ppp multilink
     ppp multilink group 1
     ppp multilink endpoint hostname
    end
    !
    R2(config-if)#do show run int multilink1
    Building configuration...

    Current configuration : 191 bytes
    !
    interface Multilink1
     ip address 192.168.0.2 255.255.255.0
     ppp chap hostname client1
     ppp chap password 0 cisco
     ppp multilink
     ppp multilink group 1
     ppp multilink endpoint hostname
    !
    R1#show ppp multilink

    Multilink1, bundle name is client1
      Username is client1

      Endpoint discriminator is R2
      Bundle up for 00:01:36, total bandwidth 1544, load 1/255
      Receive buffer limit 12000 bytes, frag timeout 1000 ms
        0/0 fragments/bytes in reassembly list
        0 lost fragments, 0 reordered
        0/0 discarded fragments/bytes, 0 lost received
        0x0 received sequence, 0x0 sent sequence
      Member links: 1 active, 0 inactive (max not set, min not set)
        Se0/0, since 00:01:37
    No inactive multilink interfaces

    HAPPY STUDY
