I can't ping a loopback IP on one router from another router in GNS3

Hello Experts,

I have what I'm sure is a simple question.  I have two routers in GNS3.  The routers are connected using fa0/1.  I have configured R1 as follows:
Interface Loopback0
   Ip address

Interface FastEthernet0/1
   Ip address
   duplex auto
   speed auto

I have configured R2 as follows:

 Interface FastEthernet0/1
   Ip address
   duplex auto
   speed auto

At this point I can successfully ping from R1 and from R2.  However I cannot ping from R2.  What am I missing?
