Here's how to implement dialback to a user via Cisco 2600:


1. Under Dial access profile, add the following attributes:

Service type Framed
Framed-Protocol PPP
Cisco-AV-Pair lcp:callback-dialstring=
(This config allows the user to put in any number)

2. On the User object -> Remote Access -1

Set Dialback to Dialback Any Number
Enable use dial in port for dial back

3. On the User object -> Dial Access Services

Enable dial access control
Chose the relevant dial access system
Under Configured services choose your dialaccess profile.
Add the following attribute for the user lcp:send-secret=<password> (e.g.. lcp:send-secret=nomoresecrets)
