Note that the frame cloud is own and manage by a Frame relay service provider and it is not the responsibility of a corporate network. To improve configuration experience Cisco have provide this to network engineer for simulation purposes.
The tutorial we take you through how frame cloud it is configured for frame relay physical interface and point to point interface to allow you to simulate your configuration and test it before it is implemented.
Click on the WAN emulation and select a cloud to use, see our network diagram indicate with a yellow circle.
By now you should know that all frame interface is DCE and the corporate network router edge connected to the frame is the DTE interface, Use the network diagram to examine the configuration below.
Next click or double click on the cloud WAN emulation to open a dialogue window. Click on the Config list of options and configured both the interface and frame-relay options.
First steps configured the Frame relay connected interface with the correct DLCI and name to remember when configuring the frame relay options. see how the diagram below how we have configured the above network diagram for the interface.
The frame cloud is configured by creating a link between the interfaces connected to the edge router, in this case of the network we are using for this tutorial the frame-relay configuration will look like the one below. The frame
PORT SUBLINK PORT SUBLINK
Serial 1 FRANCE <-> Serial 0 NEWYORK
Serial 2 FRANCE <-> Serial 0 LONDON
Serial 2 NEWYORK <-> Serial1 LONDON
Second steps configured the frame relay ports and link
Test the network you have configured for Frame-relay by ping you computer to computer on your network. See connectivity verification between computer in NEWYORK and LONDONHQ ROUTER below
Also see connectivity verification between computer in FRANCE and NEWYORK below
Remember it a perfect idea to configure the entire network first before configuring this. Skibbz tutorial advice you should carry out these activities last in case the network required troubleshooting.
Note if the cloud is empty you might have to off the device and move the 1 or 2 PT CLOUD NM-1S to the empty space, on the device after you have done and happy with the.
