Cisco Router - configure new T1 for point to point connection on two 1841 routers

Hello All,

I have two new 1841 series routers with integrated T1 CSU/DSUs int the router. I need to install each router a main site and branch site and connect the two. What commands do I need on the router to use the new T1s. As far as I know I just need the following. Am I correct? Do I need any special configuration at the main or branch routers for the T1? Thank you.

Main Site:

Interface Serial0/0/0
service-module T1 timeslots 1-24
ip address 172.21.175.1 255.255.255.252

Branch:

interface Serial0/0/0
service-module T1 timeslots 1-24
ip address 172.21.175.2 255.255.255.252

It's been a while for me but I think you need to set your encapsulation. Since you said it's a point to point circuit you should set encap ppp.

i would not like to point out the obvious but the no shutdown command will help you drastically.

Need to set the encapsulation to ppp like mentioned above and set the clock source to internal.

On which router do I need to set the clock source to internal? I know we have other sites and one router is set with service-module t1 clock source internal and the other is not. Also do I really need ppp encap?

I believe that it needs to be set on one router. And yes you need to define the encapsulation.
