Your attempts to connect to a remote router are unsuccessful. In the event log of one the routers you get the following error. The error may be logged on the router making or receiving the call:
The Rasipcp.log file on this computer shows information similar to the following:
The Ppp.log file on this computer will have the following error message:
The logs on the other router do not indicate any errors.
This error is caused by one of the routers requesting a bad IP address. In this case, the router is requesting an address of 184.108.40.206 and the routers are using a subnet mask of 255.255.255.252. Using a mask of 252 results in the following configuration:
220.127.116.11 - Network ID
18.104.22.168 - First Host ID
22.214.171.124 - Second Host ID
126.96.36.199 - Subnet Broadcast ID
Therefore, the IP address being requested is a Network ID and not a Host ID. The same error will occur if the Subnet Broadcast ID (188.8.131.52) were requested.
Change the demand dial interface to request a valid Host Address or to use an IP address assigned by remote router.
