Hi,

I have layout my topology using CCNA Network Visualizer 5.0. I have Router_A, Router_B, and Router_C and all connected to each other through serials.

When I send a ping regardless which router I'm in, i get 0 percent success rate.

Maybe my configuration is the issue but cannot seems to locate the source of the problem.

Below are my configuration pf all routers:


Router_A

 

Router_A Con0 is now available

You need to set the clock rate on the DCE end of the serial connections. Not sure how you know which end is DCE in Visualizer, but try show controller.

You may have set the DCE end when laying out your topology...I've never used the simulator, but you definitely need to set the clock rate on DCE.

So something like:

router#config t
router(config)int s0/0
router(config-if)encapsulation hdlc
router(config-if)clock rate 64000
router2(config-if)no shutdown
0

Thanks it works fine after setting the clock rate...I shouldn't have relied on the simulator !
