MLPPP Configuration on Cisco Packet Tracer


Packet Tracer MLPPP Configuration Example


In whe previous lesson, we have learned what is MLPPP. Here, we will focus on how to configure MLPPP. In this MLPPP Configuration example, we will use the below simple topology. We will configure MLPPP on both of the routers step by step.

In Multilink PPP Configuration example, we will do the below configurations:


  1. Firstly we will create MLPPP Bundle Interface and assign IP Address to this interface.

  2. Then, we will assign the physical interfaces under MLPPP bundle.

  3. Lastly, we will verify our MLPPP configuration.


Now, let’s start our configuration.



Creating MLPPP Bundle


Firstly, we will create MLPPP Bundle, Logical Interface. We will set the encapsulation as PPP and we will assign an IP address to the logical interface.


Router1(config)# interface multilink 1

Router1(config-if)# encapsulation ppp

Router1(config-if)# ip addres

Router1(config-if)# exit


Router2(config)# interface multilink 1

Router2(config-if)# encapsulation ppp

Router2(config-if)# ip addres

Router2(config-if)# exit



Configuring MLPPP Bundle Members


We will assign each physical serial interface under the MLPPP bundle. To do this, firstly we will remove the interface ip address with “no ip address” command and then we will determine the encapsulation type as PPP. After that, we will enable MLPPP with “ppp multilink” commands and then  we will assign the physical interfaces to the bundle with “ppp multilink group” command.


Router1(config)# interface serial 0/0

Router1(config-if)# no ip address

Router1(config-if)# encapsulation ppp

Router1(config-if)# ppp multilink

Router1(config-if)# ppp multilink group 1

Router1(config-if)# no shutdown

Router1(config-if)# exit
