Hi, I'm a newbie with Cisco routing/switching and at the early stage of my education in this area. I was wondering if anyone out there could help me with something basic?
I have two older Cisco routers connected via a bonded-T1 point to point connection. The router at the remote location is connected to the P2P but not connected to a switch yet. The router at other (main) location is connected to the P2P and I have a couple older Cisco switches available to connect it to.
I can console into the main router and get ICMP responses from the router at the other end but when I trying running a network cable from the 0/0 FastEthernet port on the back to one of our available Cisco switches, I can't get ICMP responses from a PC connected to the same switch. This switch also has a domain controller, DNS & DHCP connected to it.
This switch has worked for this connection in the past when we had to pass/pull traffic to a server located at the main location when users were at the remote site.
Do I need to have a switch connected at the remote end to complete the circuit and have this work?
If you can't answer my question, can you point me to a forum topic containing the information I'm looking for?
