OK so first off I have not been to any cisco type of training school. I'm sure the obvious answer is, "Well then go to one instead of asking all of us here then! =P
I have 2 cisco 2801's with CSU/DSU module in it.
I can interface the unit fine from the console port or by using the web based java enabled SDM 2.5 software.
I have setup the CSU/DSU using the console interface inputting:
NO (to fractional T-1)
no IP was configured into this serial device either.
I also have my FE 0/0 connection setup in Full duplex
Now, I have a homeade T1 crossover cable inputted into the CSU/DSU of each router. There are no alarm lights on either CSU and the CD light is green.
Thus telling me my connection between the two units via the "T1" link is good.
I can ping the router that is attached to either computer via ethernet just fine, but I cannot ping the other router attached via the "T1" link or the other computer attached to the other router.
Something like this:
Computer 1 <----> FE 0/0 (Router 1) <--??--> CSU/DSU (1) <---->HOMEADE Crossover cable (w/pins 1,2 & 4,5 reversed on one end) <----->CSU/DSU (2) <--??--> FE 0/0 (Router 2)<--->Computer 2
The question marks are there because I cannot ping computer 2 from computer 1 or vice versa. How can I tell if I have good connectivity from my routers FE 0/0 port to the CSU/DSU of the same router?
I mean it's not like I can ping it right?
Just throw out ideas on what you think I might be able to do to resolve this if you guys get a chance.
Thanks in advance for any help.
