Re: Router 2811 port problem

Hello Vishal,

now is different the serial interface is down/down

before it was admin down/down.

A serial interface to be up/up needs to be connected to some device that makes leads to be up:

at the end of the show you see:

DCD down carrier

DSR down

CTS down

these are from L1 DCE

DTR and RTS are from the router serial interface

see the following from a router in production

sh int ser4/2

Serial4/2 is up, line protocol is up

[...]

446 carrier transitions DCD=up DSR=up DTR=up RTS=up CTS=up

if you are connecting two routers in back-to-back one has to provide clock:

use

clock rate 2000000

Hope to help

Re: Router 2811 port problem

by default all ports are disabled.

you must go under the port and use the command "no shutdown"

then the port will be activated.
