Can i used a normal RJ45 cross-cable to connect my 2 x Cisco 2650 routers? Both my router have VWIC 2MFT-G703 E1 Controller card. Can you also advise what configuration I need to apply on the routers to connect them back to back thru serial interface?
I followed the link you recommended and tried the config illustrated by Cisco "PPP Back-to-Back Connections" but my routers showed 'Serial 0/0:0 is reset, line protocol is down'. Any idea why? By the way, the clock rate don't show too when I do a 'Show run'.
Thanks for the reply but I still could not ping RouterA from RouterB and vice versa. As mentioned before, when I do a 'show interface', both the router's Serial 0/0:0 shows that it is in 'reset' status and 'the protocol is down'.
See my config below. You may have notice that when I do a 'show run', there is no "clock rate 64000" for Router A. I don't know why it is not reflected but I did input this command.
When you are using back to back connection, you should set one router's clock as internal and the other as line. By default, clock will be line. So you should give the command clock source internal at one end.
