Frame-Relay help needed --Connected 3 Routers

Hello,

I have created a Lab where one Router is acting like a Frame switch and other two routers are connected to it. But what i see on my other routers is when i do "show frame pvc" i see "Status as Static' why am i not seeing it "ACTIVE". I cannot do " sh frame lmi" even when i configure the LMI on switch and Routers. Also i couldn't see the " sh frame map" nothing was under it. In my fRAME Switch i see in my " sh frame route" the status Static. Is this normal or any changes are needed in configuration. Kindly assisst.

Re: Frame-Relay help needed --Connected 3 Routers

Hi,

you need to configure frame-relay intf-type dce

on s0/1 on router 1 too.

Can you ping successfully between endpoints ?

Both Interfaces on the Frame switch are DCE. Yes, both routers R#1 and R#2 can ping each other fine. It's just the PVC status "Static" which is confusing me.

Thanks,

Hassan

Re: Frame-Relay help needed --Connected 3 Routers

Did you have the command frame-relay switching on the FR router? I presume so because the routers can see each other.

I think all the "static" means is that the DLCI is statically assigned to your point-to-point interface by the frame-relay interface-dlci. Try creating a third DLCI and don't put it on a subinterface. I think it will get assigned dynamically to the physical interface.

Hello kevin.

Yes frame-relay switching command is there.

I have searched google to see what they say on it. What i notice is their output gives them "ACTIVE" status. But I am getting " Static" PVC's. Hmm...not sure at this time.

Well the command was missing in the config you sent :)

Hello,

Sorry, which command am i missing, which is causing the PVC status to be " STATIC" rather then " ACTIVE" ..can you kindly confirm.

Regards,

Hassan...
