Threaded View
im using boson net sim and have a network set up just a basic simple
network that i have done in the labs so many times before

fa0/0 = /24

thats fine

now when i come to set the serial interface on the same router in boson
with the following ip and mask

s0/0 = /24

i get a message saying that overlaps with fastethernet0/0

is this an error in boson or am i missing some fundamental aspect to
networking here?

Re: Boson NetSim Problem, HELP

Just my two cents but perhaps you might consider having every separate
network segment on a different subnetwork such as

fa0/0 = /24

s0/0 = /24

fa0/0 = /24

s0/0 = /24

The above example doesn't overlap because the interfaces don't both
reside in the same /24 subnet.

Your example doesn't work either unless your planning on bridging the
segments or doing some type of NAT. Both of your LAN segments are on the
same subnet, they would never communicate.

To the OP. All segments need to unique, you cannot have the same subnets on
different interface on the same router. While you did have different IP's on
the interfaces, you had them on the same network (192.168.4.X). On a single
router it is mandatory they be on different subnets. Across routers you
"could" have the same subnets, but that would require going into some
advanced topics such as bridging and/or NAT'ing which often happens when
partnering with a new company. I think at this point in your studying you
best stick with straight routing and not worry about it now.

cheers people

i got it working now, i was being a bit silly about the networks, my
boson is netsim 6 with a repair key
