Packet Tracer

Answered Question
Sep 10th, 2008

Will the packet tracer work if a interface is down? My understanding is that I can use this to test my configuration before bringing everything up. Is this correct?

Thank you,

Travis

I have this problem too.

Hi ,

Looks like I had my inside interface down and outside up when I initiated packet tracer from inside to outside.....

I think because of outside interface being down,the route outside command is not working......

If you do a " sh route ",you would not see it as outside interface is down....

Just attach a cable to the outside interface and try packet tracer again....
