Can you configure "clock rate" on the DCE side and see if that helps ?

I have a couple of questions:

1) Is the S0 in working condition?

2) Are the ports in "no shut" state ?

In addition to that can you check whether you have the command 'frame-relay intf-type dce' on the DCE interface.

What do you mean by working condition. Is in the interface in up/down state. What is the status of the interface signals, DCD/DTR etc. Can you post the relevant configuration?

It would be easy to troubleshoot if you can provide more info.


Could you post the


1) "sh run" for interfaces s0 and s1 on both the routers you are connecting?


2) "sh interface" for s0 and s1 for both the routers
