Hi Pros,

I have a 7604 which I have to configure as Frame Relay Switch. I am able to configure frame-relay switching globally and set the interface as intf-type dce. But I am not able to configure any frame-relay route command under DCE interface. But I am able to execute the show command "show frame-relay route".

7604 running s72033-ipservices_wan-mz.122-18.SXF.bin. I suspected it could be a hidden command but it is not taking the command when executed.

I found the reason for it. Actually there are 2 ways of configuring frame-relay route. One is to configure frame-relay route under the interface config. And the second option is to configure connect statements globally in the router. I missed noticing the second option.
