Cisco router 803 ping issue
Posted on 2006-06-12
I have an old Cisco 803 router and I'd like to backup the IOS to a TFTP server as practise.
I am accessing the router via Hyperterminal console on a PC. A laptop, which I am going to use as the TFTP server, is connected to the e0 interface of the router.
The laptop has been assigned as static IP address of 192.168.1.65/24. The e0 interface on the router has been assigned an IP address of 192.168.1.66/24, and they are connected via x-over cable.
Strangely, I can ping 192.168.1.66 from the laptop, but cannot ping 192.168.1.65 from the router.

ip address 192.168.1.66 255.255.255.0

Is there anything glaringly obvious that I'm doing wrong?
