|| Dial in to the NAS from a client PC.
Ensure that the client PC is able to connect to the NAS by establishing a dial-in connection. As the call comes into the NAS, a LINK-3-UPDOWN message automatically appears on the NAS terminal screen. In the following example, the call comes into the NAS on asynchronous interface 14:
*Jan 1 21:22:18.410: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface Async14, changed state to up
If this message is not displayed by the NAS, there is a problem with the dial-in configuration.
debug commands are turned on to display this log message. This message should be displayed within 30 seconds after the client first sends the call.
Enter this command to enable privileged EXEC mode. Enter your password if prompted:
Enter this command on the tunnel server to verify that the client received an IP address. The following example shows that user3 is using IP address 10.0.0.1.
Router# show caller user email@example.com
User: firstname.lastname@example.org, line Vi2.502, service PPPoVPDN
Connected for 1d10h
Timeouts: Limit Remaining Timer Type

If an incorrect IP address or no IP address is displayed, there is a problem with IP addresses assignment. Verify the configuration of the
address command in the virtual template on the tunnel server.
Enter this command to verify that the interface is up, that LCP is open, and that no errors are reported. The following output shows a functional interface:
Router# show interfaces virtual-access 2.502
Virtual-Access2.502 is up, line protocol is up
Hardware is Virtual Access interface

Last clearing of ''show interface'' counters never
The virtual access interface is up and the line protocol is up, showing that virtual interface establishment was successful.
Enter this command on the tunnel server to verify that there are active VPDN sessions. This example shows output from a tunnel server with several active tunnels.
