By default, the callback server will wait 15 seconds before it attempts to initiate a callback to the client. You can modify this timer with the dialer enable-timeout command. To set it to 5 seconds issue the command:

Rl(config-if)# dialer enable-timeout 5

During these few seconds, the packets being sent by the client will be dropped. You can have the client queue these packets until the link is established, then send them using the command below.

To allow interesting outgoing packets to be queued until a connection is established, use the dialer hold-queue command in interface configuration mode.

R4(config-if)# dialer hold-queue 50
