Command Description:

To select the Local Management Interface (LMI) type, use the frame-relay lmi-type interface configuration command. To return to the default LMI type, use the no form of this command.

Cisco's implementation of Frame Relay supports three LMI types: Cisco, ANSI Annex D, and ITU-T Q.933 Annex A.

The LMI type is set on a per-interface basis and is shown in the output of the show interfaces EXEC command.

If you want to deactivate LMI autosense, use this command and the keepalive command to configure the LMI. For more information about LMI autosense and configuring the LMI, see the "Configuring Frame Relay" chapter in the Wide-Area Networking Configuration Guide.


Example:

The following is an example of the commands you might enter to configure an interface for the ANSI Annex D LMI type:

Router#interface Serial 0/1
Router(config-if)#encapsulation frame-relay
Router(config-if)#frame-relay lmi-type ansi
Router(config-if)#keepalive 15
