Having problem line protocol is down

This is driving me nuts. I've successfully configured eigrp many times
but for some reason I can't get it to work this time maybe someone could help me locate the problem. I'm using RouterSim Vis 5.0.
I just created a small network of 4 routers. Here is the name and IP of each router:

Bob-
s0/0 192.168.10.1 255.255.255.252
s0/1 192.168.10.13 255.255.255.252

Susan-
s0/0 192.168.10.2 255.255.255.252
s0/1 192.168.10.5 255.255.255.252

Jenny-
s0/0 192.168.10.6 255.255.255.252
s0/1 192.168.10.9 255.255.255.252

Jack-
s0/0 192.168.10.10 255.255.255.252
s0/1 192.168.10.14 255.255.255.252


I've turned on EIGRP AS 10 on all routers and advertised the network number. In the sh ip route nothing is coming up and when I run the sh ip int I get serial line up protocol down.
I think it might be the DCE/DTE. I've run the sh controller on each router
but still I'm unsure about how this should be setup. I know that a back to back router one should be DCE the other DTE but how should this be setup when you have 4 routers in a loop environment?

    Did you set the clock rate on one of the serial interfaces? DCE router will have a clock rate of xxx and the DTE router will ajust to that value accordingly. You only need to set it on one router.

    ^^that's right, but maybe a bit confusing. You need to set the clock rate on one interface for each each pair of DCE/DTE serial interfaces. If you have 4 routers connected as you said, four of the serial interfaces must have the clock rate command entered (the DCE interfaces). If you did the show controllers serial x you will know which ones are the DCE interfaces that need to be configured with the command.

    serial line up protocol down has nothing to do with how you configure EIGRP. Can you do a "show cdp neighbors". If not, then you are trying to troubleshoot one layer too high. As other people have mentioned, check your clock-rate and encapsulation configurations. It appears your problem lies @ layer 2 and not 3.

    Did you get past the protocol down issues? Are you now working on a different routing issue?

    When I do configurations like that (real routers or simulator), I usually connect Serial 0 on one router to Serial 1 on another router -- and just make all Serial 0 the DCE end. Saved time figuring out router name and cable connections so I could just concentrate on trying new stuff.

    Could also be the simulator but I highly doubt you have configured the clock rates correctly as I do not see them in your configurations.

    the command sh int controller will shot you if the end is DCE or DTE,

    It's working now. Funny cause I did set the clock rate twice and it
    didn't work. I just got home rebooted my rig and set the clock rate again
    and it worked. icon_rolleyes.gif Maybe the simulator is a little buggy. Thanks anyway for your all your help

    Nice little tip icon_cool.gif

    I like the interface on RouterSim... but I had more problems with functionality than with Boson -- and I gave up on Boson. And it's annoying debugging problems only to find out they are flakey software problems -- not router configuration problems.

    I still like the concept of the simulators -- they just still don't seem to have delivered on their marketing.

    serial up, line down is a clocking, framing or encapsualtion pronlem. you have on your list of info 4 routers each with dce and dte.. on each communicating device (all four of em) on serial 0/0 of all four routers put clock rate 64 and see the magic
