Configuring the PA-5EFL Port Adapter


To continue your Cisco PA-5EFL port adapter installation, you must configure the Ethernet interfaces. The instructions that follow apply to all supported platforms. Minor differences between the platforms—with Cisco IOS software commands—are noted.

This chapter contains the following sections:

Using the EXEC Command Interpreter

Configuring the Interfaces

Checking the Configuration

Using the EXEC Command Interpreter

You modify the configuration of your router through the software command interpreter called the EXEC (also called enable mode). You must enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter with the enable command before you can use the configure command to configure a new interface or change the existing configuration of an interface. The system prompts you for a password if one has been set.

The system prompt for the privileged level ends with a pound sign (#) instead of an angle bracket (>). At the console terminal, use the following procedure to enter the privileged level:


Step 1 At the user-level EXEC prompt, enter the enable command. The EXEC prompts you for a privileged-level password as follows:

Router> enable 

Password: 

Step 2 Enter the password (the password is case sensitive). For security purposes, the password is not displayed.

When you enter the correct password, the system displays the privileged-level system prompt (#):

Router#


To configure the new interfaces, proceed to the "Configuring the Interfaces" section.

Configuring the Interfaces

After you verify that the new PA-5EFL port adapter is installed correctly (the enabled LED goes on), use the privileged-level configure command to configure the new interfaces. Have the following information available:

Protocols you plan to route on each new interface

IP addresses, if you plan to configure the interfaces for IP routing

Bridging protocols you plan to use

If you installed a new PA-5EFL port adapter or if you want to change the configuration of an existing interface, you must enter configuration mode to configure the new interfaces. If you replaced a PA-5EFL port adapter that was previously configured, the system recognizes the new interfaces and brings each of them up in their existing configuration.

For a summary of the configuration options available and instructions for configuring interfaces on a PA-5EFL port adapter, refer to the appropriate configuration publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section.

You execute configuration commands from the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter, which usually requires password access. Contact your system administrator, if necessary, to obtain password access. (See the "Using the EXEC Command Interpreter" section for an explanation of the privileged level of the EXEC.)

This section contains the following subsections:

Shutting Down an Interface

Performing a Basic Configuration

Shutting Down an Interface

Before you remove an interface that you will not replace, or replace port adapters, use the shutdown command to shut down (disable) the interfaces to prevent anomalies when you reinstall the new or reconfigured interface processor. When you shut down an interface, it is designated administratively down in the show command displays.

Follow these steps to shut down an interface:


Step 1 Enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (also called enable mode). (See the "Using the EXEC Command Interpreter" section for instructions.)

Step 2 At the privileged-level prompt, enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal is the source of the configuration subcommands, as follows:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#

Step 3 Shut down interfaces by entering the interface ethernet subcommand (followed by the interface address of the interface) and then enter the shutdown command. Table 4-1 shows the command syntax.

When you have finished, press Ctrl-Z—hold down the Control key while you press Z—or enter end or exit to exit configuration mode and return to the EXEC command interpreter.

show interfaces ethernet command followed by the interface address of the interface.


For complete descriptions of software configuration commands, refer to the publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section.

Performing a Basic Configuration

Following are instructions for a basic configuration: enabling an interface and specifying IP routing. You might also need to enter other configuration subcommands, depending on the requirements for your system configuration and the protocols you plan to route on the interface. For complete descriptions of configuration subcommands and the configuration options available for ethernet interfaces, refer to the appropriate software documentation.

In the following procedure, press the Return key after each step unless otherwise noted. At any time you can exit the privileged level and return to the user level by entering disable at the prompt as follows:

Router# disable

Router> 


Step 1 Enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal is the source of the configuration subcommands, as follows:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#

Step 2 Specify the first interface to configure by entering the interface ethernet subcommand, followed by the interface address of the interface you plan to configure. Table 4-3 gives examples.

Step 3 Assign an IP address and subnet mask to the interface (if IP routing is enabled on the system) by using the ip address subcommand, as in the following example:

Router(config-if)# ip address 10.0.0.0 10.255.255.255

Step 4 Add any additional configuration subcommands required to enable routing protocols and set the interface characteristics.

Step 5 Reenable the interfaces using the no shutdown command. (See the "Shutting Down an Interface" section.)

Step 6 Configure all additional port adapter interfaces as required.

Step 7 After including all of the configuration subcommands to complete your configuration, press Ctrl-Z—hold down the Control key while you press Z—or enter end or exit to exit configuration mode and return to the EXEC command interpreter prompt.

Step 8 Write the new configuration to NVRAM as follows:

Router# copy running-config startup-config
[OK]
Router#

This completes the procedure for creating a basic configuration.

Checking the Configuration

After configuring the new interface, use the show commands to display the status of the new interface or all interfaces, and use the ping and loopback commands to check connectivity. This section includes the following subsections:

Using show Commands to Verify the New Interface Status

Using the show interfaces Command

The show interfaces command displays status information (including the physical slot and interface address) for the interfaces you specify. All of the examples that follow specify ethernet interface.

For complete descriptions of interface subcommands and the configuration options available for Cisco 7100, Cisco 7200, Cisco uBR7200, Cisco 7301, and VIP2 interfaces, refer to the publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section. The following sections offer some platform-specific output examples using the show interfaces command.


Note The outputs that appear in this document may not match the output you receive when running these commands. The outputs in this document are examples only.

Proceed to the next section "Using the ping Command to Verify Network Connectivity" to check network connectivity of the PA-5EFL and switch or router.

Using the ping Command to Verify Network Connectivity

Using the ping command, you can verify that an interface port is functioning properly. This section provides a brief description of this command. Refer to the publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section for detailed command descriptions and examples.

The ping command sends echo request packets out to a remote device at an IP address that you specify. After sending an echo request, the system waits a specified time for the remote device to reply. Each echo reply is displayed as an exclamation point (!) on the console terminal; each request that is not returned before the specified timeout is displayed as a period (.). A series of exclamation points (!!!!!) indicates a good connection; a series of periods (.....) or the messages [timed out] or [failed] indicate a bad connection.

Following is an example of a successful ping command to a remote server with the address 10.0.0.10:

Router# ping 10.0.0.10 <Return>
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echoes to 10.0.0.10, timeout is 2 seconds:
!!!!!
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/15/64 ms
Router#

If the connection fails, verify that you have the correct IP address for the destination and that the device is active (powered on), and repeat the ping command.

Proceed to the next section "Using loopback Commands" to finish checking network connectivity.

Using loopback Commands

With the loopback test you can detect and isolate equipment malfunctions by testing the connection between the PA-5EFL interface and a remote device such as a modem or a CSU/DSU. The loopback subcommand places an interface in loopback mode, which enables test packets that are generated from the ping command to loop through a remote device or compact serial cable. If the packets complete the loop, the connection is good. If not, you can isolate a fault to the remote device or compact serial cable in the path of the loopback test.

Depending on the mode of the port, issuing the loopback command checks the following path:

When no compact serial cable is attached to the PA-5EFL interface port, or if a DCE cable is attached to a port that is configured as line protocol up, the loopback command tests the path between the network processing engine and the interface port only (without leaving the network processing engine and port adapter).

When a DTE cable is attached to the port, the loopback command tests the path between the network processing engine and the near (network processing engine) side of the DSU or modem to test the PA-5EFL interface and compact serial cable.
