Cisco IOS

I am not familiar with Cisco Routers but have used other types for many years. I have inherited a Point-to-Point connection with 1721 routers at each end. I have been wading through the documentation for two days to find out how to add a simple static route to the configuration.

Login

password

ENABLE

password

CONFIGURE TERMINAL

Then >> IP ROUTE 199.106.65.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.254.100

Ctrl-Z

Then I do a Show Config

My route is not there?!?!?! I must be missing some step but I can't figure out what.!!!

Can someone take pity on me and tell what I am doing wrong, or point me to the correct forum??!!!

Thanks

Greg

Re: Cisco IOS

Do a show run ? Do you see it ? or what about "show ip route"

Re: Cisco IOS

Is the interface that the packet will go out Up/Up. In addition, can you ping 192.168.254.100 ?? The router has to know which interface to take before it will add the route. Do a 'show ip route 192.168.254.100' does the router know how to get there???

Re: Cisco IOS

Thank you both.

It seems that the "Show Config" command defaults to the NVRAM Config. Show run does show the correct route and I found the Copy running to nvram command to update the NVRAM and now Show Config does show my new route.

Thanks for the help

Re: Cisco IOS

IF you show config,maybe use "show run".I think you must config the interface's ip ,and config static route and up the line.
