Link two Cisco uBR cable modems back to back

I have a network issue in which I need to test setting up routing and a VPN tunnel between to Cisco cable modems (ubr924s).  The thing is, I don't have a cable connection in my lab environment.  I am racking my brains for a way to connected to cisco cable modems back to back using the cablemodem0 interfaces.  Is this possible without the cable network head-end equipment (ie. is there an easy way to emulate a cable network the way you would a crossover T1 cable between two routers with T1 cards)?

I am guessing this may be like ISDN.....go out and buy something.  Anyone have any creative ideas?

You can not do this without the upstream equipment the framing ans line code is different.  I don't even know if you can buy an emulator .... the UBR is EOL/EOS and not supported even on new code for 12.3 or 12.4

O jave worked with these quite a bit with comcast ... what is it that you are trying to accomplish and maybe we can help you with that.

Thanks

Scott;

I am looking to experiment with ubr to ubr tunnels between cable sites.  I wanted to test it in a lab environment prior to rolling it out.

Well I can tell you that these units do not have a lot of CPU power and that you can kill them very easily.  I actually got rid of mine recently because of the limitation of the 10Mb 1/2 duplex hub on the back.

I had tunnel's setup between 4 sites just using GRE no encryption and it worked ok I used rip V2 to advertise routes for local networks and access-lists to distribute only routes learned that I wanted learned.

What are you trying to do I would be more than happy to add my 2cents

Thanks
