DLCI = 46, DLCI USAGE = LOCAL, PVC STATUS = ACTIVE, INTERFACE = Serial0.1

Why do you think that this is not working? If the command shaping inactive is leading you to this conclusion then bare in mind that this will change in real time to active when:

1. BECNs are received and DLCI has been configured to shape to BECNs.

2. The number of data bytes to transmit out of an interface are more than the available credit (byte limit) in a given interval (Tc).

Since there have been no BECNs recieved the traffic shaping is inactive, i.e. the traffic is not currently being shaped, even though it can be if the network thresholds are exceeded
