Dialer-watch and backup-interface are somewhat similar, but fill different functions. Dialer-watch monitors the routing table; if a particular route disappears, it activates the ISDN interface. Backup-interface is configured on your primary interface (for example, your frame-relay interface); if the primary interface goes down, the ISDN line is brought up.

    Could someone please explain when to use the "backup interface" or
"dialer-watch" commands when backing up a Frame-Realy interface.
I realise it has to do with whether you have sub-interfaces or not but I do
not understand the rules here.
