Connecting 2 x 2600 routers

I have 2 x 2600 routers. I wish to connect them via direct serial interface
link and use it for testing IP, Frame Relay, x.25 over the link.

I have a crossed serial cable.

What config is needed on each interface to make the link work?

I know that clockrate will need to be set.




Re: Connecting 2 x 2600 routers


Use a DTE-DCE cable. I got mine from http://www.anthonypanda.com /

router A (DTE)
!
int s0/0
 bandwidth 2048 (optional, needed to give wan utilisation for SNMP reports)
 ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.252
 no shutdown
!

router B (DCE)
!
int s0/0
 bandwidth 2048
 ip address 10.1.1.2 255.255.255.252
clock rate 2000000
no shut
!

This gives an HDLC link with an IP subnet over the WAN.
-----------------------------------------------------
For Frame Relay, use something like this:

router A (DTE)
!
frame-relay switching
!
interface Serial0/0
 bandwidth 512
 no ip address
 encapsulation frame-relay
 no ip route-cache
 no ip mroute-cache
 no fair-queue
!
interface Serial0/0.1 point-to-point
 bandwidth 256
 ip address 10.1.1.6 255.255.255.252
 no ip route-cache
 no ip mroute-cache
 frame-relay interface-dlci 17 IETF
!

Router B (DCE)

!
interface Serial0/0.1
 bandwidth 512
 no ip address
 encapsulation frame-relay
 no ip route-cache
 no ip mroute-cache
 clockrate 500000
 frame-relay intf-type dce
!
interface Serial0/0.1 point-to-point
 bandwidth 256
 ip address 10.1.1.5 255.255.255.252
 no ip route-cache
 no ip mroute-cache
 frame-relay interface-dlci 17 IETF
!

Cheers Big Si,

I've got the DTE-DCE cable so I will give that config a bash.

Thanks,

Just realised I have a smart serial to V35 female -> V35 male to smart
serial.

Will purchase a smart serial to smart serial crossover cable.
