Below is a output from the known working router (3600). I don't have a problem with this router but I need this router replaced with a Cisco 6509 Multilayer switch with a HSSI card. The problem I have is when I swap the connections for the 6509 from the 3600, I get line line protocol despite having the exact same config as the 3600. Why doesn't the same config parameters work on the 6509. From my experience I have noticed that line protocol issues usually deal with HArdware and Cabling. I am leading to the right path?
