OK guys, I need some direction.  I have a back up Fiber connection connecting my remote site data closets.  The Verizon guy handed off the 10 MEG line to me in ethernet form on both ends.  I need to do the following:
Connect one hand off to my Cisco Cat 3750 and configure routing
Connect other hand off to my Cisco 6506 and configure routing
If anyone has any suggestions about how I go about doing that, I could be very appreciative.  I don't think I need low level instruction.  somewhere between giving me the actual commands and what I have written above will sufice.  I appreciate any thoughts on this project anyone may have.

I think you need to figure out how you would like to design this.

Some of the questions you would have to ask yourself is:
What kind of routing protocol is currently in place on my network?
What kind of routing protocol do I wish to implement?
How would you like routing to take place?
How would you integrate with your current routing scheme?
How is the IP addressing scheme going to be implemented?

I think to being with once you can answer those for yourself, the answers will start coming from yourself.  But what you're asking is for someone to design a segment of your network without an understanding of what you want besides I want connectivity and how it needs to integrate with the current equipment.

It's pretty straightforward.  Just think of the 10m link the same as you would a crossover cable between two switches.

Of course once you've got the link working then you'll have to create static routes or use a routing protocol...

ip routing
int g0/1
 no switchport
 ip address
 no shut
int g3/2
 ip address
 no shut

In the hope of saving someone else's sanity... About a year ago we bought a Cisco 1921 router with two ADSL/VDSL EHWIC cards to load balance local network traffic over the two broadband lines we have, but we couldn't get the routing to work consi…
In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
