Re: DCT DTE crossover Cable

Hi,

Connect pins 1,2 from one cable to pins 4,5 of the other. Also connect ping 4,5 from the first cable to pins 1,2 of the second.

Here's a summary:

1 --- 4

2 --- 5

4 --- 1

5 --- 2

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

Re: DCT DTE crossover Cable

Thats what I had but I still can't get the frame links to come up.

Thanks

Re: DCT DTE crossover Cable

Is it the physical layer that's not coming up ? If the controller is coming up, but the link-layer (frame-relay) is not coming up, the cabling is not the issue.

Would you be able to post the output of 'sh controller t1 xxx' ?

One other thing, if you are using frame-relay, configure 'frame-relay intf-type dce' under the serial interface at one end. That will allow the link-layer to come up.

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

Re: DCT DTE crossover Cable

I think we are getting closer... Could you pls post the output of 'show service-module serial0/0' from routerA and also for the serial port which it connects to on the FRswitch ?

Re: DCT DTE crossover Cable

Thank you so much for your help... Is it clocking? Both set to line..

Purple

Re: DCT DTE crossover Cable

Clocking is certainly an issue but you've got a bigger issue to deal with before then. Both interfaces are showing loss of signal, so your cable is the problem.

Could you post the output of 'sh ver' and 'sh diag' from your routers ?

Thanks.

Re: DCT DTE crossover Cable

Actually, could you try the following cross-over cable.. I've seen this being used on some occasions...

1 --- 5

2 --- 4

4 --- 2

5 --- 1
