Document Objectives

This quick configuration guide describes the tasks you perform to solve common business problems with dial networking technologies. It presents the most common dial access tasks in a format that enables you to configure your access server quickly for the most common tasks. It does not describe every feature, but describes those tasks that you most likely need to do to configure your access server.

This guide begins with a case study followed by configuration scenarios. It also references detailed configuration options described in the Cisco IOS configuration guides and command references so that you can refer to these other documents for additional information.


This guide assumes you understand the task for which your access server was purchased.

The configuration options indicated in this quick configuration guide are the recommended methods for performing the specified tasks. Although they are typically the easiest or the most straightforward method, they are not the only methods of configuring these tasks. If you know of another configuration method not presented in this guide, you can use it.


This guide is intended primarily for the following audiences:
