To place a line into dedicated asynchronous mode using Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) or PPP encapsulation, use the async mode dedicatedcommand in interface configuration mode. To return the line to interactive mode, use theÂ no form of this command.
async mode dedicated
noÂ async mode dedicated
This command has no arguments or keywords.
Asynchronous mode is disabled.
With dedicated asynchronous network mode, the interface will use either SLIP or PPP encapsulation, depending on which encapsulation method is configured for the interface. An EXEC prompt does not appear, and the router is not available for normal interactive use.
If you configure a line for dedicated mode, you will not be able to use theÂ async dynamic address command because there is no user prompt.
The following example assigns an IP address to an asynchronous line and places the line into network mode. Setting the stop bits to 1 enhances performance.
interface async 4
Â async default ip address 172.31.7.51
Â async mode dedicated
Â encapsulation slip
Â location remote computer
Â stopbits 1
Â speed 115200
