I am having difficulty connecting these two routers back to back, via a T1 cable. The hardware is a WIC-1DSU-T1= in each device. The problem is, I cannot get the line protocol to come up.

The encapsulation is ppp on both ends
Both ends are using esf framing
Both ends are using a line code of b8zs
Both ends have a clock source of line
the 3640 has the "no-dce-terminal" command
the 2621xm has a clock rate of 4000000
Neither side has alarms that I can see

The cable I made is correct, it works when connecting 2621xm to 2621xm and 3640 to 3640. It does not work when going from 2621xm to 3640.

One of those ends needs to provide the clock source.

i usually put the clock rate on both ends for a lab setup.

Cisco docs all say to set clock rate on one end.  If you set it on both ends you risk going out of sync.

i found the issue. I was using a dual wic on the 2621xm and it didnt synch up right to the 3640. Once both ends used a single t1 card, it worked

thanks
