ISDN problem solved but do not understand why :-(

    I could not ping the local interface ISDN BRI. After doing some
    searching on Google and this group, the answer is to use the dialer map
    to map the local ip address to the remote one at the other end of the
    connection.

    It "solves" the problem but technically, in my opinion, it does not :
    it just gives me the feeling that I can ping, but in fact, I ping the
    other side.

    I would like to undertsand why I can not ping the local interface of
    ISDN BRI while I can on SE, Ethernet interfaces

    Thanks,

    DT

    the reason is because is a non broadcast media, per se the traffic destined
    to the local interface is first sent to the other end of the link and the
    routed back (just as serial interfaces just that in this case the router
    doesn't know how to reach it like in frame relay needs more information).
    you need explicitly to let know the router where to reach such address.
