Point to Point Router Setup

Routers were provided and configured by verizon when service was purchased.  
I changed the setup because we had talked about getting rid of the point to point and use vpn instead, however, now I'd like to get the point to point back in use.  I can't seem to set the default route back to the ppp 1 interface.

 
Adtran Netvanta 3200.

We have a point to point connection between two sites in maryland.  

Here is the configuration on one side (pretty much the same on the other side)
#show running-config

what i've noticed is the default route does not actually show  in the route table
show ip route


Codes: C - connected, S - static, R - RIP, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area
       N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2
       E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2

Gateway of last resort is not set

S    10.117.0.0/20 [1/0] via 192.168.34.1, eth 0/1
S    10.117.33.0/24 [1/0] via 192.168.34.1, eth 0/1
S    10.117.48.0/24 [1/0] via 192.168.34.1, eth 0/1
S    172.16.2.0/23 [1/0] via 192.168.34.1, eth 0/1
C    192.168.34.0/24 is directly connected, eth 0/1
S    192.168.35.0/24 [1/0] via 192.168.34.1, eth 0/1




when i do a show ip interface the ppp interface is down
show ip interface

GridLock137Commented:
is the interface ppp 1 in a down\down state right now?

some things to check:

1. check the encapuslation
2. check the physical media
3. check the clock rate (in this case it could be on the ISP side since they provide the clocking)
4. shouldn't your ppp 1 interface have a routable IP address and not a non-routable one?

let us know, thank you.

I don't see an encapsulation statement.

If your default gateway link (ppp) is down, it won't show in the routing table.

It's point to point, so you can have private IP addresses there. Check the status of T1 interface. I don't see clocking configured in T1 interface. I would try to set T1 interface on one router with "clock source line" and on the other - "clock source internal".

perhaps this will help some.  I beileve the initial setup was done by verizon, I had changed the default route to not go over the point to point anymore.  Now when I try to change it back to the ppp 1 interface, of course it says the interface is down, but the t1 is up.

Please try to set clocking. Some of the errors on your tdm group can be caused by incorrect clocks unless you know for sure that your ISP provides you with clocking.

GridLock137Commented:
usually the ISP sets the clocking which is how they charge based on the rate of the clock. so check on the ISP side and make sure it's set up properly.

semowenAuthor Commented:
Both routers have always been set to get the clocking from the ISP (been running for the last 3 years) but I need to confirm with them.  Any other suggestions in case that isn't it?

GridLock137Commented:
make sure the speed and duplex match the ISP side.

I was able to get Adtran and Verizon on the phone at the same time.  The verizon tech created a loop which was seen on both sides and the point to point ppp interfaces came up good.  When he took back down the loop, the ppp interfaces came up good and my connection was working.  Not sure the resolution, or if anything else was changed on verizon side. The router config was good.

Wish I knew exactly what the issue was.  Having verizon run more tests on their side is what actually got it going.
