To confirm the serial ports of two routers are working, I am connecting them back to back by two V35 cables(V35 male & V35 female), and I know one router should be DCE and whilst the other should be DTE. Here are my questions are:
1) How can I make this test work? I've heard there are DTE & DCE cables, then how can I identify a DTE or DCE cable? By the female or male connector on the cable itself or some other methods?
2) Where should I enable clocking? On the DCE side or DTE side?
I've tried different combinations of above two but with no luck, can u guys shed me some light on this?
Thanks for your information clearing up the cable conventions, from my observations i guess there may be an issue with the DCE(male) cable as it never shows any sign of DCE when attached to the two routers, therefore I will get another DCE cable to verify.
