DDR misconfiguration leads to strange single-ping?

    I've recently resolved a strange symptom on a 2600 configured for DSL,
    PPoE, and PAT. I'm still getting up to speed on Cisco, and I know this
    is a "duh" on my part, but in hindsight I'm curious why we observed the
    particular symptom we did. My understanding of ATM is vague here, as
    well as DDR as it applies to ATM / DSL.

    The problem was that Dialer1 did not have a dialer-group entry, and
    correspondingly there was no dialer-list set up. DDR didn't occur to me
    immediately because I'm accustomed to seeing DDR on circuit-switched
    links (ISDN), not packet/cell-switched lines. (Why do you need
    interesting traffic for a line that's always on?)

    With the absence of dialer-group and dialer-list, we'd observe hosts
    that could ping any destination *once*, followed by timeouts. The 2600
    itself could ping all day long, and any hosts configured for NAT
    instead of PAT. So here's where I'm also confused - why is one ICMP
    packet getting through? Is the call coming up and immediately being
    torn down? (And not in a timing sense, but in an actual layer 3 sense?)

    Or is there something more that I'm yet still missing?

    Thanks for feedback!
