I have an issue where I am forced to use a T1 frame-relay to support a connection to a remote site.
This frame relay connection has three DLCI's on each end, and is indicating that the T1 and frame
relay is operational (LMI is up and transmitting and receiving).
On one side I have a Cisco 3925 router and on the other a Garretcom Magnum DX900 environmentally
hardened router on the remote end (the remote end is in an un-conditioned station with no heating
Requirements have forced the use of static routing, which has caused us some headaches on our end
as it is my belief that we must point a route across the frame-relay as well even though they are
in the same subnet (10.0.0.1/30 on the Cisco side and 10.0.0.2/30 on the Garrettcom end). We are
able to ping each end successfully. However we are not able to ping the far end of frame-relay from
So my throught would be to put a static route in place, however the Cisco manuals don't talk about
it. My subnet interface setup is as below:
no ip address
encapsulation frame-relay IETF
interface Serial0/0/0:0.201 point-to-point
description - connects to DLCI 801
ip address 10.0.1.1 255.255.255.252
frame-relay interface-dlci 201
interface Serial0/0/0:0.202 point-to-point
description - connects to DLCI 802
ip address 10.0.1.5 255.255.255.252
frame-relay interface-dlci 202
interface Serial0/0/0:0.203 point-to-point
description - connects to DLCI 803
ip address 10.0.1.9 255.255.255.252
frame-relay interface-dlci 203
I had entered frame-relay interface-dlci xxx broadcast, where xxx is the dlci number but apparently
it does not put it in the running configuration. However it displays the broadcast on when I run
an show frame-relay lmi command.
On the Garettcom router. The WAN status shows that it is functional and that the LMI is up.
The routing table shows the following:
(DLCI 801 connects to DLCI 201)
Next Hop: 172.16.1.5
(DLCI 802 connects to DLCI 202)
Next Hop: 172.16.1.14
(DLCI 803 connects to DLCI 203)
Next Hop: 172.16.1.22
So there is no way to get
10.0.1.2 to 10.0.1.1
10.0.1.6 to 10.0.1.5
10.0.1.10 to 10.0.1.9
If I was to enter static routes to cross the frame relay what would they be on each end?
