PTP T1 installed, now what? How can I see that network on a windows based network?

I am able to ping a router that I have just had someone set up, via PTP T1.
the problem is i can only ping it from the router that its connected to.
Meaning, I cant ping the router from a workstation on my network, i can only ping it from the router that its directly connected to, from the Smart jack.

Any Ideas? Would i have to set up anything on my windows network?

Tanks

Can I assume that you have another router that serves as the default gateway on the local network for your workstations? THAT router must have a static route entry for the remote site subnet pointing to the local "new" router LAN IP address. The REMOTE site must also know how to get back to your LAN IP subnet, so if there is yet another rotuer on their end, that router must also have a static route for your lan pointing to the local "new" router ip address.

Hey Dude, thanks for the reply
after i posted it, my cisco guy called me and said that he had messed something up on our remote end.
thanks for the post!!

let me ask you a question, he set up the router with something like this on the main office end

ip route 192.168.100.1 255.255.255.0 <b>10.201.1.2</b>

and on the interface end he set it up with this ip, <b>10.201.1.1</b>

my question is what do these IPs mean?
im guessing they are just addresses for the routers so they can connect via PTP?

I was a little confused with that, but thanks for the reply

Correct. We "cisco guys" typically setup an ip address on the serial interface, and add a route statement that points the remote LAN subnet to the next hop's serial ip.
So if my serial ip is 10.201.1.1, then the next hop is 10.201.1.2 and on the other end it's just the same:
Other end serial ip is 10.201.1.2, then its next hop is 10.201.1.1
