Configuring an ATM port on a Cisco 7500

The ATM interface has been configured with an IP address,and the (no shutdown) command has been entered to enable AIP.On to configuring the PVC I entered(atm pvc 1 0 5 llc), command comes back invalid syntax. Can some help me with the right syntax.

Unfortunately, since this forum concentrates on VPN technologies, this question doesn't appear to be any community members area of expertise. On the other hand, I found some information at:

Normally,the pvc 0/5 is reserved for q.2931,pvc 0/16 is reserved for ILMI,so when you creat the pvc,you can't select them.

By the way,"atm pvc" command was replaced by "pvc" in IOS 12.0,and have not the "llc" parameter.

You must creat q.2931 PVC,when you use SVC.(note:q.2931 pvc must be set up only on a main interface,not on the subinterfaces.)

You had better to visit

for example:

1.creat a pvc with AAL5 and LLC/SNAP.

route(config-if)#pvc 0/6

2.creat q.2931 pvc,when you use SVC.

route(config-if)#pvc 0/5 qsaal
