frame-relay switch config

Hi,

I am trying to convert a 2612 router to a frame-relay switch. What is the correct config? The below does not work.

Thanks.

Said

Router(config)#hostname FRswitching

FRswitching(config)#frame-relay switching

FRswitching(config)#int s1/0

FRswitching(config-if)#encap

FRswitching(config-if)#encapsulation frame-relay

FRswitching(config-if)#frame-

FRswitching(config-if)#frame-relay intf-type dce

FRswitching(config-if)#exit

FRswitching(config)#int s1/0

FRswitching(config-if)#frame-relay route 18 int s1/1 16

FRswitching(config-if)#int s1/1

FRswitching(config-if)#frame-relay route 16 int s1/0 18

Re: frame-relay switch config

Hi,

the following config is part of a production system (3640) and works:

frame-relay switching

!

interface Serial0/0

no ip address

encapsulation frame-relay

clockrate 128000

frame-relay intf-type dce

frame-relay route 100 interface Serial0/1 100

!

interface Serial0/1

no ip address

encapsulation frame-relay

clockrate 128000

frame-relay intf-type dce

frame-relay route 100 interface Serial0/0 100

What is your IOS version?

Hope this helps

Martin,

Thanks much. The config worked.

The IOS version on the router is Version 12.3(9).

Happy New year.

Re: frame-relay switch config

You need to set a clock rate on each interface after you declare it as a DCE.

Also make sure your cables are connected properly. Even with back-to-back cables, there is a "DCE" end and a "DTE" end. It should be marked on the cable near the connector.

If you do a "sh controller ," somewhere in the first few lines it will say which interface type the cable has configured the interface for.

Good Luck

Re: frame-relay switch config

Just a side note to the previous poster. The Layer1 DCE side has nothing to do with the Frame Relay DCE side.

We have choosen to have them both at the FR switch side, but you may also have them at different ends.

So "clock rate " is needed on the Layer1 (interface) DCE, but not needed on the Fame Relay DCE (frame-relay intf-type dce) side.

Hope this helps

Martin
