dynamips and BSCI

Unanswered Question

I have a problem with the lab included in the Cisco Press BSCI book. The lab is designed with a 3620 and an 8 port serial card set to function as a frame relay switch.

I am using the dynamips, dynagen, GNS3 combo and there is no 8 port serial card for a 3620 supported. I set the lab up with a 7200 with an 8 port serial card but the configs that come with the book have to be adapted to allow for the difference in interface numbering.

I now must translate the DLCI assignments and "frame-relay route" commands to reflect the different numbering.

As frame-relay is not specifically covered in BSCI and the "frame relay switch" config is not documented (other than the start-config itself) I am lost as to how to adapt the configs given to the dynamips setup.

Any suggestions?

I have this problem too.

I think there's no point to configure a router as a frame relay switch for the BSCI labs.

You can use the built-in frame relay switch in dynamips which is much simpler to configure.
