I am trying to connect a pc on the ethernet port of the router (2600). I have assigned eth 0/0 10.1.3.1 255.255.255.0. (show ip interface command shows the status UP & UP). I have used a crossover cable to connect to the pc. I have assigned static 10.1.3.2 255.255.255.0 for the NIC. But now i can only ping 10.1.3.1 nothing else and also i cant ping 10.1.3.2 from the router. What am I doing wrong here? I want to use the pc as the tftp server.
thanks for your help
Lets build-up a baseline:
To ping from the PC to 10.1.3.1, its directly connected and needs no routing and should work, to ping from the PC to 188.8.131.52 needs the PC to have the router IP (10.1.3.1) as its default gateway.
NOTE that the IP addressing must be consistent (any 2 interfaces sharing the same media must have IPs in the same subnet).
Please comment on my input, and please share us your topology.
I hope that i've been informative.
