inbound (Optional) Only inbound traffic will reset the idle timeout.
either (Optional) Both inbound and outbound traffic will reset the idle timeout.

Example:

The following example specifies of an idle timeout of 3 minutes (180 seconds) on asynchronous interface 1. Because the inbound keyword is included, only inbound traffic that matches the dialer group will reset the idle timer.
