Name

dialer idle-timeout — interface, map-class

Synopsis

dialer idle-timeout seconds
no dialer idle-timeout seconds

Configures

The amount of idle time before a connection is disconnected

Default

120 seconds

Description

This command can apply to interfaces or map-class configurations. When used on an interface or a map class, it defines the number of seconds an interface must be idle (no traffic) before the connection is closed. When there is contention for a dialer (i.e., traffic for a destination different from the one to which the interface is currently connected), then the fast idle timeout is used. (See dialer fast-idle .)

Example

Interface configuration:

interface async 4
  dialer idle-timeout 300

Map-class configuration:

map-class dialer office
  dialer idle-timeout 300
