How do you assign address to serial port?

I'm trying to add an ip address to a "generic" router in Packet Tracer, I use the following command:

Router(config)interface serial 0

it won't accept the "0"

    first, u must check what's serial number in Packet Tracer , click option and then preference , click always show port labels. i think's serials in PT not 0 but 0/0/0 ,0/0/1, 0/1/0 etcicon_cool.gif

    this. usually the serial int is something like: s0/0/0 or s0/1/0. If you hover your mouse over the serial connection it will show the interface name, e.g. "s0/1/0" or "fa0/1."

    Question mark is your best friend!

    If not sure
    Do a "show ip interface brief" or a more effective way: sh ip int br
    [X] - 350-001 (300h)
    [ ] - Lab exam (60h)

    It worked! It was serial 2/0

    Thank you :)

    Like tomaifauchai suggested I recommend using the show command instead of any of the packet tracer shortcuts. The practice will serve you well on the exams and in the real world.

    the show ip int br is the best command u can use in this type of situation, usually it's the first i type after i boot up the switch/router.
