Cisco 4000 Series

Hi

I have a cisco 4000 series here.

It has 2 ethernet cards which i would need to

configure 2 different network address on the 2 cards. e.g 210.24.x.y 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.x.y 255.255.255.0.

Then i would need connect 2 pcs via cross cables to the 2 ethernet ports. I have set up the ip addresses on the 2 ports.

What else do i need to do so that both the pcs can communicate with each other?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!

regards Jeremy

Re: Cisco 4000 Series

Hi,

This is a 4000 series router, right ? (I am asking this because Cisco also had a Catalyst 4000 series switch range).

Now that you have configured the IP addresses on the ethernet ports on the router, assign each PC an IP address from the same range as the ethernet interface it is connected to. Then configure the default gateway on the PC to be the IP address of the ethernet interface it is connected to.

Then, just make sure that 'ip routing' is configured on the router (this should be the default but just enter it in anyway).

YOu are ready to go now.. PIng one PC from another and it should work.

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.

Re: Cisco 4000 Series

Hi Jeremy,

Just go into config mode and enter in 'ip routing':

router> enable

password: xxxx

router# conf t

router(conf)# ip routing

I'm sure it must be already enabled - this was just a check. If it is disabled, it will appear in the config as 'no ip routing'.

Hope that helps - pls rate posts that help.
