Help on Case study CCNA4

clintregelingclintregeling Member Posts: 8 ■□□□□□□□□□
Iam making the case study for CCNA4
But iam having difficulitys on the part where you have to create a framerelay.
Iam using packettracer 5.0, and tryed to make a cloud.


alltough the course and teacher said i need to use a router to simulate the framerelay icon_confused.gif

So my questions are:
1. How do i create framerelay with Packettracer 5.0
2. Does anybody have a techguide that explains how framerelay work

HUH, What??, Where is the any key?

    Did you download the labs that went with PT5? There is are 2 frame relay labs along with some others.

    I think “very senior” gets stuck in there because the last six yahoos that applied for the position couldn’t tell a packet from a Snickers bar.

    Luck is where opportunity and proper planning meet

    I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

    I'm also having problems setting up frame relay in Packet Tracer 5. I've got no problem setting up one VC but any more than that, the 'cloud' throws an error at me.

    Well teacher was no help at all,

    but i seem to got it working now, except the following

    i have 4 routers

    router 1
    router 2
    router 3
    framerelaycloud ---Router 4

    connection between all routers are ok

    ping router 1 to 2 and 3 are ok
    ping router 2 to 1,2,4 are ok
    ping router 3 to 4,1,2 are ok
    ping router 4 to 3 and 2 are ok

    but router1 ping to 4 fails
    and router 4 to router 1 fails

    any ideas???

    Check the routing tables, probably have split horizon at work somewhere.

    iam using pt5 can it be because of the cloud from my framerelay?

    removed cloud, and still same problem... maybe my redistrubution from ospf to rip??

    Ok i found my problem, it was my redistribution...

    what i did to solve it, i gave the router wich redistrubuted ospf into rip a default route

    now its working...

    thnx for help this far.... :)

    I'm having the exact same problem. How exactly did you put the default route?
  • jcd29jcd29 Member Posts: 4 ■□□□□□□□□□
    Ok here's my problem:

    It's the same thing (It's the CCNA4 case study v3.1), but here's my configuration:

    Every router except for Galway (router 4) has OSPF. Router 4 has RIP version 2, with its serial subnet, and its LAN subnet. in Cork (Router 3) I'm using OSPF, but also RIP version 2 for the "" subnet, which is the summarized address for everything. And I'm doing the "redistribute rip subnets" under router ospf 1.

    Now, when I input "show ip route" in Galway, I get this:

    R [120/2] via, 00:00:02, Serial0/0 is variably subnetted, 5 subnets, 2 masks
    C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
    R [120/1] via, 00:00:02, Serial0/0
    C is directly connected, Serial0/0
    R [120/1] via, 00:00:02, Serial0/0

    There's only one address missing there, which should be the subnet, but it's not learning it.

    In the cork router, I get this:

    Cork#show ip rip database
    [1] via, 00:00:21, Serial0/0 directly connected, Serial0/1 directly connected, Serial0/0 directly connected, FastEthernet0/0

    which shows that the .244 address isn't being transmitted through RIP to the Galway router, I'm guessing, right? So I'm thinking that's the problem, but I can't figure out why it's happening.

    Is it because I need to activate RIP in the Belfast router too? Would be weird, because it's never specified in the instructions.

    Also, if I input show ip ospf database in Cork:
    OSPF Router with ID ( (Process ID 1)

    Router Link States (Area 0)

    Link ID ADV Router Age Seq# Checksum Link count 777 0x80000005 0x00c065 5 777 0x80000002 0x00e93b 2 565 0x80000005 0x0062bb 4

    Type-5 AS External Link States
    Link ID ADV Router Age Seq# Checksum Tag 565 0x80000001 0x0064dc 0

    I don't see the address that's in router Belfast, which is weird because that one should be appearing.

    Ok I found in another post that doing:

    router rip
    version 2
    redistribute ospf 1 metric 1

    would work, and it did!

    Now the only thing I'm not clear about is what the "Metric" in there means exactly. It went from 1-16, so I'm guessing it's the hop number, but how would it affect if I put "2" for example?
