How to configure network interfaces for path monitoring

An example of how to configure the interfaces for the LAN network and the provider networks.

It is necessary to do this before you configure path monitor settings.

In this example we'll call the provider networks Provider A, Provider B, and Provider C.

  1. Configure the interface for the LAN network, the source of the VoIP traffic.
    vyatta@vyatta# set interfaces dataplane dp0p33p1 address '10.11.0.1/24'
    vyatta@vyatta# set interfaces dataplane dp0p33p1 description 'LAN'
  2. Configure the interface for the Provider A network.
    vyatta@vyatta# set interfaces dataplane dp0p161p1 address '10.10.2.1/24'
    vyatta@vyatta# set interfaces dataplane dp0p161p1 description 'Provider A'
  3. Configure the interface for the Provider B network.
    vyatta@vyatta# set interfaces dataplane dp0p224p1 address '10.10.3.1/24'
    vyatta@vyatta# set interfaces dataplane dp0p224p1 description 'Provider B'
  4. Configure the interface for the Provider C network.
    vyatta@vyatta# set interfaces dataplane dp0p256p1 address '10.10.4.1/24'
    vyatta@vyatta# set interfaces dataplane dp0p256p1 description 'Provider C'
  5. Commit the configuration.
    vyatta@vyatta# commit 
    [edit]
  6. Optional: View the configuration.
    vyatta@vyatta# show interfaces dataplane
    dataplane dp0p33p1 {
            address 10.11.0.1/24
            description LAN
     }
     dataplane dp0p161p1 {
            address 10.10.2.1/24
            description "Provider A"
     }
     dataplane dp0p224p1 {
            address 10.10.3.1/24
            description "Provider B"
     }
     dataplane dp0p256p1 {
            address 10.10.4.1/24
            description "Provider C"
     }
The network interfaces are now configured, ready to use when you configure path monitor settings.
