Cisco PtP connection IP changes

I currently have a PtP connection with a cisco 1720 (remote site) and 2620 router (data center). The current running-config's are below. We have an issue with a voip device at the remote site, where we need it to be outside of the network. Our t1 provider gives us serveral external addresses, and we plan to make it so we can give the voip device an external address.

Now, what i need is to give both routers each one of our available external addreses. like this:
Data Center Router IP: 66.175.103.249 255.255.255.240
REMOTE SITE Router IP: 66.175.103.253 255.255.255.240

I tried changing the IP's, but it will not seem to connect to each other anymore. although the serial line still is up.

What can I do to set this correctly?

Did you put in a network statement for RIP?

network 66.0.0.0

syndevAuthor Commented:
Yes, I added network 66.0.0.0 to both routers.

I set the following on the data center router and it seemed to allow me to connect to it both externally and insternally, so the issue now would to be to get the remote site up.

Now, once I set the remote site router as 66.175.103.253 255.255.255.240, then i can no longer ping the data center router or default gateway. how must the remote site be configured?

What interface are you changing the IP on?

I assumed it was the serial interface.

You can't use those IP addresses on the fastethernet interfaces.

No...i been changing the IP's  on the fastethernet interface's. Why cannot it be used on that?....can you give me an example of how it should look?
0
Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
The IP addresses that you're trying to use are in the same network. You MUST use IP addresses for two different networks.

Are these networks connected to the public internet? If so, where and how?
0
syndevAuthor Commented:
Yes, they are public addresses given by our T1 provider, which is a set from 66.175.103.241-254

66.175.103.241 is the default gateway
The remote site is a dry ptp connection directly to the data center.

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
So no internet connection?

If you're not connected to the internet, you don't need public IP addresses.

That said, if you want to use the public addresses, you'll either have to put them on the serial link, on one of the ethernet networks, or subnet it further and use them on both ethernet networks. Of course if you use the last option, you won't have many IP addresses for each network.

Why are you wanting to use the public IP addresses?
0
syndevAuthor Commented:
Well, the goal was to a VOIP gateway, which is located at the remote site, a public IP address without it having to route through the internal network first, because we were having problems with it going through the firewall. So we are trying to set the cisco devices on pulic IP's, then set a VPN through them via sonicwall's.

I dont mind keeping one of the cisco routers without a public address though. Preferably the Data Center router, I assumed they both would need to be on the same scope.

So what would you recommend is best?

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
Public or private addresses aren't going to change anything. A VPN tunnel can be created to, from or through either public or private addresses.
