Hi Avinash,

Yes the version of IOS you are using supports Frame relay, policy routing as well as HSRP.

Also you can use Feature Navigator for future use

Just click on serach by platform and then select your router model from drop down and the image which you are running and it will give you all features supported by that router in that particular feature set.

Thank You. I only have 2 Ethernet interfaces and one B-ISDN interface on this router. Where can I connect this frame relay circuit? Sorry, I have no experience on frame relay.

Hi Avinash,

AFAIK this is a moduar router and you need a specific interface type which can support farme relay encapsulation. I believe you need Synchronous serial interfaces on serial WAN interface cards.

Have a look a this link which is 1750 data sheet

My ISP has given me the serial interface IP's along with DLCI. I have only 2 ethernet ports on the router, one for LAN and another for WAN side. I cannot configure Frame Relay. What is the specification of the WAN Serail Interface for the router which I need to buy?
