I have setup a Cisco lab and attempting to create a WAN lab. I have 2 Cisco 1700 routers connected to each other through a DCE/DTE cable. I am attempting to mimic a WAN connection between the two routers.
I have the DCE setup for clocking at a clock rate of 64000. I am unable to bring the serial interface up. Both status and protocol are down.
I have run the 'no shutdown' command on the serial 0 interface on both the DCE and DTE routers. Am I missing something? Is there something different in bringing up these connections in a lab environment using DCE/DTE?
Do Cisco routers not like the prefix notation for the subnet? I wonder if that is my problem. But I'm pretty sure when I entered the subnet mask I typed it out. I'll copy/paste the output this evening when I am home.
