There wont be any advantage using frame-relay encap on the leased line. Still if your Boss insists, on doing it, you can do that. Frame relay back to back configuration does work. What do you need is set encapsulation to frame-relay at each end, and set the same DLCI number on each end.
frame-relay interface-dlci 100 (say) on each end. You can use any value, since its a private network.
Also you should set no keepalive on each end.
You can refer to following link.
Again there is no advantage of doing so in a P-P link. PPP would run just fine.
I've just talked with the one from the other country who gave us that FR configuration, and I asked him why were we using that configuration, if it was for the priorization for VoIP packets and rtp compression..
he sayed that with ppp you can also do it, but that when he configured the link he read some docs, and it sayed that with the FR the router had less work to do, and that for some other reasons he did not remember well it was better..
yesterday I tried what you said, I put the same config on both routers, except for ip address, etc, and the same dlci..
the only difference is that I did not set the "no keepalive" and the clock, so I guess that it was because of this that it did not work, am I right?
I'll try to configure ot again..
if I have problems and can not get it to work, so I have to use ppp.. do you know of any link that shows how to do the rtp compression and VoIP packets priorizing with ppp?
