Re: frame reley

Carl,

You certainly do need to create a sub-interface in order to use p2p frame-relay. This is how you would do it:

interface serial0.32 point-to-point

ip address...

frame-relay interface-dlci 32

Pls do remember to rate posts.

Re: frame reley

do I not need to do a frame relay map ip on this ?

Re: frame reley

Carl,

When using a point-to-point FR sub-interface, there is no need for a frame-relay map at all. It is p2p so there is no need to tell it what's on the other side.

Re: frame reley

Would both ends have the same dlci or different ? what would both ends look like ,would I put them on the same subnet ?

Re: frame reley

hi carl,,,

its up to u what kind of connectivity u r looking for....and u need to configure two different DLCI in order to make communication between two end device it like lets take two router having encapsulation frame relay...if router a want to communicate with router b then it will use xxx dlci and when router b wants to communicate with router a then it will u se other yyy dlci...when ever u r talking about mulipoint then u will have same subnet ...and when ever u r having pt to pt then u must have both end in one subnet...

Re: frame reley

The DLCI is locally significant to the router. If you have on Frame relay circuit at your host you will a number of DLCI's assigned to it. The remote sites will genreally just have one. that is the DLCI to the host. The service provider will assign DLcI's generally, but it is possible to have the same DLCI on both ends.
