Hi,
Did you tried it?
e0 and e1 are the two ethernet ports.

honestly, I dont think you can utilise the PRI interface for a serial (leased line) connection. The PRI is a channelised E1 or T1 card. NOT a serial leased line.

Yes,

But FastEthernet 0/0, FastEthernet 0/1 the ethernet, and controller e1 0/0 or e1 1/0 or,,, is E1 card!
