Input Errors and CRC

Recently we had a 2M Ethernet Link for a Internet Connection to the Telco. We have actually had a IPSEC VPN Connection over the Internet Link. Once we start moving the traffic on the IPSEC link we are seeing a log of CRC and Input Errors.

The problem is once i stop all the IPSEC traffic and just do a continous ping to yahoo.com, there is no build on the errors both on CRC and Input errors. We have checked the cable and everything, it seems to be fine. Do you think it would be a Interface issue? Or is there something we can ask the ISP to check for us? Please help me, i am stuck and dont know how to move ahead on this.


Below is the interface output, in this the error is less but actually it is building a lot over the time.

This sounds like it might be a problem on the telco's side if you have your duplex/speed setup right (it probably is fine, it's currently at 100/full).
Please have them check again to verify the problem is not on your side.
Another thing would be to check the cable... verify there is no problem with the cable or that if doesn't have a massive amount of interference to close to it (power lines, transformers, power breakers, some sort of wireless broadcast apparatus other than wifi).
Cheers!

Hi,

Thanks for the advise. As you said both the Speed and Duplex is set correctly. Let me call up the Telco to check on the link and maybe do a end to end test to see if we are seeing the Input and CRC Errors.

Hi,

Yeah it was a Issue with the Telco cable from there device in our site to the router. Once they changed it eveything seems to be fine. THanks for you help.

I figured it was the telco... they never have their acts together.
Cheers! Glad it's fixed!
