Connectivity Test

I have a router that does not have any connection to its Fast Ether ports yet. If the interface is up but the line is down should I be able to ping the address from a console connection? Additionally, is this the reason why the network the ethernet interface is on will not show up in the routing table?

Re: Connectivity Test

you will not be able to ping unless you have line & line protocol up . The reason you have line up is that as soon as you plug a cable in to the ethernet port you get link . It will not show up in the routing table because the interface is up down

Re: Connectivity Test

You can through a "no keepalive" on the interface to bring it to up/up state.

Re: Connectivity Test

it still will not respond to ping with no keepalive

Re: Connectivity Test

The router should respond with "no keepalive" command, if you ping from inside the router.

Re: Connectivity Test

Also take a look at the routing table, the route will appear and can be advertised via a routing protocol to other routers (great for a lab set-up).
