This isn't a Windows NT issue. Connecting 3 locations with Frame Relay is done by using dedicated routers like Cisco. Each location should have a router with a FR connection on the WAN side, and an Ethernet connection on the LAN side. The Windows NT servers are connected to the LAN. A router WAN connection should be transparent. Windows doesn't care it's a WAN connection. What you should do is get some info about getting a FR connection from AT&T or other providers. Then get some info about Routers supporting FR (cisco for instance). When all WAN connections are up and running you can plan the Windows NT implementation.

Frame relay is another subject within itself, there's really nothing much to it just like peter said first choose a provider and then choose you router ( some providers give you one for a lease) then set up your NT networks to have your default gateway ip address (the default gateway address is your ip address of your router).

I would start by opening a dialogue with AT&T, MCI and Sprint. It make take 90-days or longer to provision the three sites for frame relay. Cisco routers are great but other companies such as Bay make competitive products. You may also want to purchase frame relay switches that Paradyne, Ascend and Visual Networks make. The switches are better than the standard DSUs and add a level of troubleshooting capability to you frame relay network. NT works well with the TCP/IP over frame relay. You NT LAN connects to the ethernet port of the router.

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

I guess my question should be how do I config the Cisco 2611 for frame relay. I am questioning the detailed configuration not the general steps.

Does your 2611 use an internal T-1 DSU, or an external?

First step is to setup Serial port to use frame-relay encapsulation:

serial 0/0
 encapsulation frame-relay

Second step (preferred method) is to setup point-to-point PVC's to each of the other two locations from your main site:

serial 0/0.1 point-to-point
 description connected to site X
 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.252
 frame-relay interface-dlci xxx (you must get the DLCI from the frame provider)

serial 0/0.2 point-to-point
 description connected to site Y
 ip address 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.252
 frame-relay interface-dlci yyy


Site X config:

serial 0/0
 encap frame-relay
serial 0/0.1
 description connected to main site
 ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.252
 frame-relay interface-dlci WWW

Site Y config:
serial 0/0
 encap frame-relay
serial 0/0.1

description connected to main site
 ip address 192.168.1.6 255.255.255.252
 frame-relay interface-dlci WWW

chantelk,
This is an old, closed question. You must post your own new question if you want anyone to assist.
Also, be very specific in your question. "where do I start to learn networking Cisco switches" is a very broad subject. The best answer to that is http://www.cisco.com

Go to this topic area and "ask a question" to post in the right place..

- Cheers!
