Tip If you are experienced using the Cisco IOS software, you might find the "Where to Go Next" section a useful reference for configuration.


Configuring the Hostname, Password, and Time Stamps

The first configuration tasks you might want to execute are assign a hostname to your Cisco AS5350XM or Cisco AS5400XM, set an encrypted password, and turn on time stamps for these reasons:

Assigning a hostname allows you to distinguish between different network devices.

Setting an encrypted password in the configuration file adds greater security on your gateway.

Time stamps help you trace debug output for testing connections. Not knowing exactly when an event occurs hinders you from examining background processes.

Configure

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

Router> enable
Password: password
Router# 

Enters enable mode (also called privileged EXEC mode). Enters the password. You are in enable mode when the prompt changes to Router#.

Step 2 

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

Enters global configuration mode. You are in global configuration mode when the prompt changes to Router(config)#.

Step 3 

Router(config)# hostname AS5400
AS5400(config)#

Changes the name of the gateway to a meaningful name. Substitute your hostname for AS5400.

Step 4 

AS5400(config)# enable secret guessme

Enters an enable secret password. This password provides access to privileged EXEC mode. When you type enable at the EXEC prompt (AS5350> or AS5400>), you must enter the enable secret password to gain access to configuration mode. Substitute your enable secret password for guessme.

Step 5 

AS5400(config)# service password-encryption

Applies password encryption.

When password encryption is enabled, the encrypted form of the password is displayed when a show configuration command is entered.

Note You cannot recover a lost encrypted password.

Step 6 

AS5400(config)# service timestamps debug 
datetime msec

Enters time-stamp debugging messages to include milliseconds in the date and time stamp.

Step 7 

AS5400(config)# service timestamps log 
datetime msec

Enters time-stamp logging messages to include milliseconds in the date and time stamp.

Step 8 

AS5400(config)# line con 0

Enters line configuration mode to configure the console port. You are in configuration mode when the prompt changes to AS5350(config-line)# or AS5400(config-line)#.

Step 9 

AS5400(config-line)# exec-timeout 0 0

Prevents the gateway's EXEC facility from timing out if you do not type any information on the console screen for an extended period.

Step 10 

AS5400(config-line)# exit
AS5400(config)#

Exits global configuration mode.


Note The enable password command is obsolete. Do not use it.


Verify

To verify that you configured the right hostname and passwords, use these commands:

Enter the show configuration command:

AS5400(config)# show configuration
Using 1888 out of 512000 bytes
!
version XX.X
.
.
!
hostname AS5400
!
enable secret 5 $1$60L4$X2JYOwoDc0.kqa1loO/w8/
.

Check the hostname and encrypted password displayed near the top of the command output.

Exit global configuration mode and attempt to log in using the new enable secret password. The show privilege command shows the current security privilege level.

AS5400# exit

AS5400 con0 is now available
Press RETURN to get started.
AS5400> enable
Password:
AS5400# show privilege
Current privilege level is 15
AS5400#

Configuring Local AAA Security

Configure authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) to perform login authentication by using the local username database. The login keyword authenticates EXEC shell users. Additionally, configure PPP authentication to use the local database if the session was not already authenticated by the login keyword.

AAA (called triple A) is the Cisco IOS security model used on all Cisco devices. AAA provides the primary framework through which you set up access control on the Cisco AS5350XM or Cisco AS5400XM universal gateway.

The same authentication method is used on all interfaces. AAA is set up to use the local database configured on the gateway. This local database is created with the username configuration commands.


Step 1 Create a local login username database in global configuration mode. In this example, the administrator's username is admin. The remote client's login username is Harry.

AS5400(config)# username admin password adminpasshere
AS5400(config)# username Harry password Harrypasshere

Caution This step also prevents you from getting locked out of the gateway. If you get locked out, you must reboot the device and perform password recovery.

Step 2 Configure local AAA security in global configuration mode. You must enter the aaa new-model command before the other two authentication commands.

AS5400(config)# aaa new-model
AS5400(config)# aaa authentication login default local
AS5400(config)# aaa authentication ppp default if-needed local

Table 3 explains the preceding configuration example.

Table 3 Local AAA Commands 

Command
Purpose
AS5400(config)# aaa new-model

Initiates the AAA access control system. This command immediately locks down login and PPP authentication.

AS5400(config)# aaa authentication login 
default local

Configures AAA to perform login authentication by using the local username database. The login keyword authenticates EXEC shell users.

AS5400(config)# aaa authentication ppp 
default if-needed local

Configures PPP authentication to use the local database if the session was not already authenticated by the login keyword.


Step 3 Log in with your username and password:

AS5400# login

User Access Verification

Username: admin
Password:

AS5400#

A successful login means that your local username works on any TTY or VTY line. Do not disconnect your session until you can log in.



Note For comprehensive information about how to implement a Cisco AAA-based security environment for dial-based and router environments, see the Cisco AAA Implementation Case Study document, available online at
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/cisintwk/intsolns/aaaisg/index.htm


Creating a Login Banner

A banner shows you which unit you are connected to (or are connecting through, in the case of a console server).


Step 1 Create the banner:

AS5400(config)# banner login |
Enter TEXT message.  End with the character '|'.
This is a secured device.
Unauthorized use is prohibited by law.
|
AS5400(config)# ^Z
AS5400#

Step 2 Test the banner:

AS5400# login

This is a secured device.
Unauthorized use is prohibited by law.

User Access Verification

Username: admin
Password:

AS5400#


Configuring Loopback Interfaces, Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces, and IP Route

To commission a basic dial access service, perform the following tasks:

Create two loopback interfaces.

Bring up the Gigabit Ethernet interface.

Add an IP route to the default gateway.


Step 1 Assign the IP addresses as in the following example, and create an IP route to the default gateway:

AS5400(config)# interface loopback 0
AS5400(config-if)# ip address 172.22.99.1 255.255.255.255
AS5400(config-if)# exit
AS5400(config)# interface loopback 1
AS5400(config-if)# ip address 172.22.90.1 255.255.255.0
AS5400(config-if)# exit
AS5400(config)# interface GigabitEthernet 0/0 
AS5400(config-if)# ip address 172.28.186.55 255.255.255.240
AS5400(config-if)# no shutdown
AS5400(config-if)# exit
AS5400(config)# ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.28.186.49

In this example:

Interface loopback 0—Identifies the universal gateway with a unique and stable IP address. One unique IP address from a common block of addresses is assigned to each device in the IP network. This technique makes security-filtering easy for the Network Operations Center (NOC). One Class C subnet used for device identification can support 254 distinct devices with unique loopback addresses.

Interface loopback 1—Hosts a pool of IP addresses for the remote nodes. In this way, 1 route, instead of 254 routes, is summarized and propagated to the backbone. Pick the IP address for loopback 1 from the range of addresses that you will assign to the local address pool.

Step 2 Verify that the Gigabit Ethernet interface is up. Ping the default gateway to verify this.

AS5400# ping 172.28.186.49

Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 172.28.186.49, timeout is 2 seconds:
.!!!!
Success rate is 80 percent (4/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/4 ms

This step verifies that you have IP connectivity with another device on the subnet. If the ping to the default gateway succeeds, try pinging the DNS server in your backbone. Make sure that the backbone routers are configured to get to the gateway; otherwise, the ping does not work. Configure the backbone routers to support the routes to the networks you are using.



Note An 80 percent ping-success rate is normal for the first time you ping an external device. The Cisco AS5350XM and Cisco AS5400XM universal gateways do not have an Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) entry for the external device. A 100 percent success rate is achieved the next time you ping the device.


Configuring the Asynchronous Group Interface

Asynchronous group interfaces allow administrators to easily configure a large number of asynchronous interfaces by allowing them to clone from one managed copy. This can also reduce the number of lines in the configuration, because each individual asynchronous interface configuration can be replaced by at least one group-async interface. To assign the asynchronous interfaces to a group-async interface, first determine the number of asynchronous lines that need to be aggregated. This can be determined from the running configuration.

Notice that in the "Checking the Initial Running Configuration" section on page 5, the asynchronous lines are numbered from 0 to 107.

Configure

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

AS5400> enable
Password: password
AS5400# 

Enters the enable command. Enters your password. You are in privileged EXEC mode when the prompt changes to AS5350# or AS5400#.

Step 2 

AS5400# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. 
End with CNTL/Z.
AS5400(config)#

Enters global configuration mode. You are in global configuration mode when the prompt changes to AS5540(config)# or AS5350(config)#.

Step 3 

AS5400(config)# interface group-async 1
AS5400(config-if)#

Enters interface configuration mode, and places all asynchronous interfaces in a single group, so that you configure the same parameters quickly on all interfaces at one time.

Step 4 

AS5400(config-if)# group-range slot/port 
slot/port
Building configuration...
AS5400(config-if)#

Defines the slot/port group range of the interface. The range that you specify depends on the number of asynchronous interfaces you have on your gateway. If your gateway has 108 asynchronous interfaces, you can specify group-range 1/1 1/107.

Step 5 

AS5400(config-if)# Ctrl-Z
AS5400#

Returns to enable mode.

Verify

To verify your group interface configuration enter the show interface async command to check whether the protocol is up:

AS5400# show interface async 4/0

Configuring T1 and E1 Feature Cards

On a Cisco AS5350XM or Cisco AS5400XM universal gateway, you can allocate the available channels for channelized T1 and E1 lines in the following ways:

Configure all channels to support ISDN PRI.

If you are not running ISDN PRI, configure all channels to support robbed-bit signaling (also known as channel-associated signaling).

Configure all channels in a single channel group.

Mix and match channels supporting ISDN PRI, channel grouping, and channel-associated signaling (CAS).

Mix and match channels supporting ISDN PRI, channel grouping, and robbed-bit signaling across the same T1 line. For example, on the same channelized T1 you can configure the pri-group timeslots 1-10,24 command, channel-group 11 timeslots 11-16 command, and ds0-group 17 timeslots 17-23 type e&m-fgb command. This is an unusual configuration because it requires you to align the correct range of timeslots on both ends of the connection.


Note For configuration information about leased-line or nondial use, see the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide for your software release.



Note You can install a maximum of two T1 feature cards, two E1 feature cards, or one channelized T3 (CT3) feature card in a single Cisco AS5350XM or Cisco AS5400XM chassis.


Controller Numbering

The T1 and E1 controller numbering convention is slot/port in CLI commands. Feature card slot numbering starts from the motherboard and works up from left to right. Slot 0 is reserved for the motherboard. T1 or E1 feature card slots are numbered sequentially from 1 to 7. Port numbering is from 0 to 7.

Note the following:

The controller must report being up.

No errors should be reported.

The TDM subsystem troubleshooting commands are not used during normal system operation. Instead, the Cisco IOS commands show the current status and settings of the TDM backplane, enable debug output for display to the user when TDM programming occurs, and provide a set of test commands to test the functionality of the TDM path. TDM commands are generally used only by a Cisco technical support representative during troubleshooting of data continuity problems.


Note For details on the TDM feature, see the Cisco IOS software configuration guide and command reference publications. These publications are available on the Documentation DVD and on the World Wide Web from the Cisco home page, or you can order printed copies. See "Obtaining Documentation" section on page 21.


If you are having trouble:

First decide if the problem is due to the T1 or E1 line or with a particular channel group. If the problem is with a single channel group, you have a potential interface problem. If the problem is with the T1 or E1 line, or with all channel groups, you have a potential controller problem. (See the "Configuring ISDN PRI" section.)

To troubleshoot your E1 or T1 controllers, first check that the configuration is correct. The framing type and line code should match to what the service provider has specified. Then check channel group and PRI-group configurations, especially to verify that the timeslots and speeds are what the service provider has specified. At this point, the show controller t1 or show controller e1 commands should be used to check for T1 or E1 errors. Use the command several times to determine if error counters are increasing, or if the line status is continually changing. If this is occurring, you need to work with the service provider.

Another common reason for failure is the dial-tdm-clock priority setting. The default setting is a free-running clock that causes clock slip problems if not set properly. (See the "Configuring Clocking" section.)

Configuring a Channelized T3 Feature Card

The channelized T3 (CT3) feature card offers 28 individual T1 channels (bundled in the T3 line) for serial transmission of data. The channelized T3 link supports the maintenance data link channel in C-Bit parity mode and also payload and network loopbacks. The T1 channels multiplexed in the channelized T3 link support facilities data link (FDL) in extended super frame (ESF) framing.

Additionally, you can allocate your T1 channels as described in the "Configuring T1 and E1 Feature Cards" section.

Controller Numbering

The channelized T3 controller numbering convention is slot/port in CLI commands. Feature card slot numbering starts from the motherboard and works up from left to right. Slot 0 is reserved for the motherboard. Feature card slots are numbered sequentially from 1 to 7. Port number value is always 0.

Under the channelized T3, the T1 controller numbering convention is slot/port:channel in CLI commands. Port numbering values range from 1 to 28.

Configuring ISDN PRI

ISDN PRI interfaces can be configured on the 8-port T1 or E1 feature cards, or the CT3 feature card. ISDN provides out-of-band signaling using the D channel for signaling and the B channels for user data.

Channelized T1 ISDN PRI offers 23 B channels and 1 D channel. Channelized E1 ISDN PRI offers 30 B channels and 1 D channel. Channel 24 is the D channel for T1, and channel 16 is the D channel for E1.

For a complete description of the commands mentioned in this section, refer to the Cisco IOS Dial Technologies Command Reference for your software release.

Request PRI Line and Switch Configuration from a Telco Service Provider

Before configuring ISDN PRI on your Cisco router, you need to order a correctly provisioned ISDN PRI line from your telecommunications service provider.

This process varies from provider to provider on a national and international basis. However, some general guidelines follow:

Determine if the outgoing B channel calls are made in ascending or descending order. The Cisco IOS software default is descending order; however, if the switch from the service providers is configured for outgoing calls made in ascending order, the router can be configured to match the switch configuration of the service provider.

Ask for delivery of calling line identification. Providers sometimes call this CLI, or automatic number identification (ANI).

If the gateway will be attached to an ISDN bus (to which other ISDN devices might be attached), ask for point-to-multipoint service (subaddressing is required) and a voice-and-data line.

Table 4 provides a sample of the channelized T1 configuration attributes you might request for a PRI switch.

Controller Numbering

The T1 or E1 controller numbering convention is slot/port in CLI commands. Feature card slot numbering starts from the motherboard and works up from left to right. Slot 0 is reserved for the motherboard. T1 or E1 feature card slots are numbered sequentially from 1 to 7. Port numbering is from 0 to 7.

The channelized T3 controller numbering convention is slot/port in CLI commands. Feature card slot numbering starts from the motherboard and works up from left to right. Slot 0 is reserved for the motherboard. Feature card slots are numbered sequentially from 1 to 7. Port number value is always 0.

Under the channelized T3 controller, the T1 controller numbering convention is slot/port:channel in CLI commands. Port numbering values range from 1 to 28.

Note Your Cisco AS5350XM or Cisco AS5400XM universal gateway supports a total of 248 ISDN channels per ingress trunk feature card. If you are configuring individual T1 channels of your channelized T3 line for backup links or serial backhaul connections, the T1 channels must be configured into channel groups—each channel group using 24 time slots or channels. For example, to configure 6 T1 channels (6x24), 144 ISDN channels are in use, leaving a remainder of 104 (248-144) channels for ISDN use. See the "Configuring ISDN PRI" section.


In the following show running-config example, six T1 channels are configured into channel groups:

There may be a problem with your telco, or the framing and line code types you entered may not match those of your telco. A Layer 2 error indicates that the gateway cannot communicate with the telco. There is a problem at the data link layer.

Configuring DS0 Trunk Group Dial Out

The DS0 Trunk Group Dial Out feature adds functionality that enhances outbound call routing by giving the user control over individual DS0 lines for outbound calls. Previous to this feature, outbound DS0 lines could not be configured separately from DS1 lines. The dial out capabilities of a DS1 line applied to all DS0 lines under that DS1 line.

Currently, the aggregation of DS1 lines into trunk groups is done through the Trunk Group Resource Manager (TGRM). The DS0 Trunk Group Dial Out feature enables the TGRM subsystem to aggregate DS0 lines into trunk groups also. The dial out capabilities of these DS0 trunk groups can then be configured directly at the DS0 level through the TGRM CLI and by setting the authentication authorization and accounting (AAA) attributes.

The configuration of DS0 lines for outbound calls enables the Dial on Demand feature to initiate outbound calls over a set of B channels.

DS0 dial out trunk groups are configured on a Network Access Server (NAS). They support both digital and asynchronous calls and can be configured for ISDN PRI and Non-Facility Associated Signaling (NFAS) circuits.

A trunk group is a logical grouping of multiple T1 or E1 interfaces with the same signaling characteristics. A single trunk group can contain up to 64 trunks. Each trunk group can consist of DS0 lines from different circuits, but each individual DS0 line can belong to only one trunk group.


Note DS0 dial out trunk groups can be provisioned for dial out only at present and should not be provisioned as targets of dial peers.



Note DS0 dial out trunk groups do not support voice interfaces.


Trunk Group Resource Manager

The Trunk Group Resource Manager (TGRM) supports the logical grouping, configuration, and joint management of one or more interfaces. The TGRM is used to store configuration information and to accept or select an interface from a trunk group when requested.

A trunk group is provisioned as the target of a dial peer or a dial out profile on an AAA server, and the TGRM transparently selects the specific interface and channels to use for incoming or outgoing calls. Trunks are selected based on the trunk that is least used (default configuration) or the hunt scheme configured.

Using trunk groups simplifies the task of configuring dial peers and interfaces, and also enables the dynamic selection of interfaces as needed in the access server.

A trunk group can include any number of interfaces, but all the interfaces in a trunk group must use the same type of signaling.

The TGRM subsystem has been enhanced to add fractional trunks to a trunk group. A fractional trunk is a single DS0 line or a group of DS0 lines from a trunk.

Configure

The trunk-group command assigns a trunk to a trunk group by specifying the trunk group label parameter and optionally setting the preference parameter.

The DS0 Dial Out Trunk Group feature adds two new optional keywords:

timeslots list of timeslots

preference preference

The timeslots keyword allows you to selectively add DS0 lines from a signaling circuit. Fractional trunk groups are configured from the controller configuration mode only (because a PRI serial interface may represent multiple member interfaces, including NFAS). If the timeslots option is not specified, all the DS0s in the signaling circuit are assigned to the trunk group.

The preference keyword is configured after the timeslots option and is visible only when the timeslots option is used. This helps to differentiate between the list of timeslots number and the preference number.

The following example shows the syntax for configuring selected DS0 lines using the timeslots keyword and the preference keyword.

trunk-group label timeslot list of timeslots preference preference

The following example shows the syntax for configuring all the DS0 lines in the signaling circuit:

trunk-group label preference

Syntax Parameter Descriptions

label

Trunk group label. Maximum length of the trunk group label is 127 alphanumeric characters.

list of timeslots

List of the interfaces from the signaling circuit to be added to the trunk group. The range is 1 to 64.

preference

Priority of the trunk group member in a trunk group. The range is from 1 (highest priority) to 64 (lowest priority). The preference variable can be used to sort a list of trunks in order. A trunk with no preference variable is given the highest preference.


The following examples show the configuration steps for PRI signaling. Controller T1 3 is a trunk configured for PRI.

PRI Trunk Configuration


Step 1 Configure framing, clock source, DS0 group, and so forth.

AS5400(config)# controller T1 3
AS5400(config-controller)# framing esf
AS5400(config-controller)# clock source line secondary 3
AS5400(config-controller)# linecode b8zs
AS5400(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1-24
AS5400(config-controller)# !

Step 2 Configure the trunk group label.

AS5400(config)# interface Serial3:23
AS5400(config-if)# no ip address
AS5400(config-if)# trunk-group PRI-TRUNK-GROUP

Note The timeslots option is not available in the serial interface configuration mode, because a serial interface may represent an NFAS serial interface.


Step 3 Configure timeslots and preference.

AS5400(config)# controller T1 3
AS5400(config-controller)# framing esf
AS5400(config-controller)# clock source line secondary 3
AS5400(config-controller)# linecode b8zs
AS5400(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1-24
AS5400(config-controller)# trunk-group PRI-TRUNK-GROUP-1  timeslots 1-10 
AS5400(config-controller)# trunk-group PRI-TRUNK-GROUP-2  timeslots 11-15 
AS5400(config-controller)# trunk-group PRI-TRUNK-GROUP-3  timeslots 20-22 preference 10 

Note When a PRI or NFAS trunk is fractionally added to a trunk group, the timeslots keyword is compulsory.

Configuring the D Channels for ISDN Signaling

The ISDN D channels carry the control and signaling information for your ISDN calls—for both circuit-switched data calls, and analog modem calls.

The D channel notifies the central office switch to send the incoming call to particular time slots on the Cisco gateway or router. Each one of the B channels carries data or voice. The D channel carries signaling for the B channels. The D channel identifies whether the call is a circuit-switched digital call or an analog modem call. Analog modem calls are decoded and then sent off to the onboard modems. Circuit-switched digital calls are directly relayed to the ISDN processor in the gateway.

When you configured ISDN PRI on the T1 or E1 controller, you automatically created a serial interface that corresponds to the PRI group time slots. This interface is a logical entity that is associated with the specific controller. After the serial interface is created, you must configure the D channel serial interface that carries signaling. The configuration applies to all the PRI B channels (time slots) for that PRI group.

Figure 3 shows the logical contents of an ISDN PRI interface used in a T1 network configuration. The logical contents include 23 B channels, 1 D channel, 24 time slots, and 24 virtual serial interfaces (total number of B + D channels).

Figure 3 Logical Relationship of ISDN PRI Components for T1


Note When you configure your T1 controller for an NFAS backup D channel, a serial interface is automatically created only when your primary D channel fails.

Configuring the Universal Port and Dial-Only Feature Cards

The universal port and dial-only feature cards support all modem standards and features. Rather than the more traditional line-to-modem mapping, lines are mapped to a system processing engine (SPE) that resides on the universal port and dial-only feature cards. Associated SPE firmware serves a function similar to modem code on a modem ISDN channel aggregation (MICA) technologies modem.


Note The dial-only feature card only supports dial services. Dial services include modem calls (all modulations), ISDN digital calls, V.110 data calls, and V.120 data calls. Modem pass-through calls are not included in dial services.


One SPE provides services for six ports, with additional ports per SPE. Busyout and shutdown can be configured at the SPE or port level.

The universal port and dial-only feature cards perform the following functions:

Converts pulse code modulation (PCM) bitstreams to digital packet data.

Forwards converted and packetized data to the main processor, which examines the data and forwards it to the backhaul egress interface.

Supports all modem standards (such as V.34 and V.42bis) and features, including dial-in and dial-out.


Note For further information, see Chapter 5, "Managing and Troubleshooting the Universal Port and Dial-Only Feature Cards."

For detailed information about CLI commands supported on the universal port and dial-only feature cards, see the Monitoring Voice and Fax Services on the Cisco AS5350 and Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateways publication, available online at
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1839/products_feature_guide09186a0080080e60.html.


SPE Firmware

SPE firmware is automatically downloaded to a universal port or dial-only feature card from the Cisco AS5350XM or Cisco AS5400XM universal gateway when you boot the system for the first time or when you insert a universal port or dial-only feature card while the system is operating. When you insert feature cards while the system is operating, the Cisco IOS image recognizes the feature cards and downloads the required firmware to the feature cards.

The SPE firmware image is bundled with the gateway Cisco IOS image. The SPE firmware image uses an autodetect mechanism, which enables the universal port feature card to service multiple call types. An SPE detects the call type and automatically configures itself for that operation. The firmware is upgradable independently of Cisco IOS upgrades, and different firmware versions can be configured to run on SPEs in the same feature card.

The universal port and dial-only feature cards support the modem standards and features listed in Table 6.

Command
Purpose

Step 1 

AS5400> enable
Password: password
AS5400# 

Enters the enable command. Enters your password. You are in privileged EXEC mode when the prompt changes to AS5350# or AS5400#.

Step 2 

AS5400# configure terminal

AS5400(config)#

Enters global configuration mode. You are in global configuration mode when the prompt changes to AS5350(config)# or AS5400(config)#.

Step 3 

AS5400(config)# spe country country name

Specifies the country for the feature card parameters (including country code and encoding). This setting is applied at the system level. All universal port or dial-only feature cards use the same country code. The default is usa if the gateway is configured with T1 interfaces and e1-default if the gateway is configured with E1 interfaces. Use the no form of this command to set the country code to the default of usa.

Note All sessions on all universal port or dial-only feature cards in all slots must be idle for this command to execute.

Step 4 

AS5400(config)# line slot/port slot/port
AS5400(config-line)#

Enters the numbers of the ports to configure. If you wish to configure 108 ports on slot 3, enter line 3/00 3/107. If you wish to configure 324 ports on slots 3-5, enter line 3/00 5/107. 108 ports will be configured on each slot.

Step 5 

AS5400(config-line)# transport input all

Allows all protocols to be used when connecting to the line.

Step 6 

AS5400(config-line)# autoselect ppp

Enables remote IP users running a PPP application to dial in, bypass the EXEC facility, and connect directly to the network.

Step 7 

AS5400(config-line)# modem inout

Enables incoming and outgoing calls.

Step 8 

AS5400(config-line)# Ctrl-Z
AS5400#

Returns to enable mode.

Modems and lines are configured after the ISDN channels are operational and POTS telephone calls have been successfully routed to the modems

Each modem is mapped to a dedicated asynchronous line inside the gateway. After the modem inout command is applied to the lines, the gateway is ready to accept modem calls.

AAA security is applied to the lines using the aaa new-model command and aaa authentication login default local command. AAA performs login authentication by using the local username database. The login keyword authenticates EXEC shell users. For more information about the AAA commands, see the "Configuring Local AAA Security" section.


Note The modem speed 115200 bps and hardware flow control are the default settings for integrated modems.

Configuring Clocking

The time-division multiplexing (TDM) bus on the Cisco AS5350XM and Cisco AS5400XM universal gateway backplane can receive an input clock from one of these basic sources on the gateway:

T1, E1, and CT3 feature cards

An external T1 or E1 clock source feed directly through the Building Integrated Timing Supply (BITS) interface port on the motherboard

Free-running clock providing clock from an oscillator


Note BITS is a single building master timing supply. BITS generally supplies DS1 and DS0 level timing throughout an office. In North America, BITS is the clock that provides and distributes timing to a wireline network's lower levels.


Trunk Feature Card Ports

The TDM bus can be synchronized with any trunk cards. On the T1 or E1 feature card, each port receives the clock from the T1 or E1 line. The CT3 feature card uses an M13 multiplexer to receive the DS1 clock. Each port on each trunk feature card slot has a default clock priority. Also, clock priority is configurable through the dial-tdm-clock priority CLI command.

External Clock

The TDM bus can be synchronized with an external clock source that can be used as an additional network reference. If no clocks are configured, the system uses a primary clock through a software-controlled default algorithm. If you want the external T1 or E1 clock (using the BITs interface) as the primary clock source, you must configure it using the dial-tdm-clock priority CLI command; the external clock is never selected by default.

The BITS interface requires a T1 line composite clock reference set at 1.544 MHz and an E1 line composite clock reference set at 2.048 MHz.

Free-Running Clock

If there is no good clocking source from a trunk feature card or an external clock source, then choose the free-running clock from the local oscillator through the dial-tdm-clock priority CLI command.

The following table lists commands to help you configure the clock source and clock source priority used by the TDM bus:

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

AS5400> enable
Password: password
AS5400# 

Enters enable mode. Enters the password. You are in enable mode when the prompt changes to AS5350# or AS5400#.

Step 2 

AS5400# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. 
End with CNTL/Z.
AS5400(config)#

Enters global configuration mode. The example uses the terminal configuration option. You are in global configuration mode when the prompt changes to AS5350(config)# or AS5400(config)#.

Step 3 


Enter one of the bulleted commands, depending on your configuration.

AS5400(config)# dial-tdm-clock priority 
priority# {external | freerun | slot/ds1 
port}

Configures the T1 or E1 feature card clock priority, slot, and port that are providing the clocking source. Priority range is a value between 1 and 99. Feature card slot is a value between 1 and 7. DS1 port number controller is a value between 0 and 7.

Note DS1 port specifies T1 port.

AS5400(config)# dial-tdm-clock priority 
priority# {external | freerun | slot/ds3 
port:ds1 port}

Configures the CT3 feature card clock priority, slot, and port that is providing the clocking source. Priority range is a value between 1 and 99.

Feature card slot is a value between 1 and 7. DS3 port specifies the T3 port. DS1 port number controller is a value between 1 and 28.

Note A clock with priority of 100 cannot drive the TDM clock.

Step 4 

AS5400(config)# Ctrl-Z
AS5400#

Returns to privileged EXEC mode.

Step 5 

AS5400copy running-config startup-config

Saves your changes when ready.

Configuration Examples

In the following example, the BITS clock is set to priority 1.

AS5400(config)# dial-tdm-clock priority 1 external
AS5400(config)# exit
AS5400#

In the following example, a trunk clock from a T1 feature card is set at priority 2 and uses slot 4 and ds1 port (controller) 6.

AS5400(config)# dial-tdm-clock priority 2 4/6
AS5400(config)# exit

In the following example, a trunk clock from a CT3 feature card is set at priority 2 and uses slot 1, ds3 port 0, and ds1 port 19.

AS5400(config)# dial-tdm-clock priority 2 1/0:19
AS5400(config)# exit

In the following example, free-running clock is set at priority 3.

AS5400(config)# dial-tdm-clock priority 3 free
AS5400(config)# exit

Verify

You can verify the system primary and backup clocks and the status of all trunk feature card controller clocks. You can also view information about and the history of the last 20 TDM clock changes and the events that caused them.

Verify your default system clocks and clock history using the show tdm clocks command (this example is for T1 or E1):

Tip The most common reason for clock slip problems is that the dial-tdm-clock priority parameter is set improperly. Change the default setting for the dial-tdm-clock priority parameter from free-running clock to a setting that matches your system requirements.


Enabling IP Basic Setup

To fine-tune the IP routing functions and domain-name services for EXEC shell users, follow these steps:


Step 1 Optimize IP routing functions in global configuration mode:

AS5400(config)# ip subnet-zero
AS5400(config)# no ip source-route
AS5400(config)# ip classless
AS5400(config)# ip domain-lookup

Table 7 describes the commands in the example.

Table 7 IP Routing Commands

Command
Purpose
ip subnet-zero

Specifies that 172.22.0.0 is a legal subnet.

no ip source-route

Tightens security by ensuring that IP-header packets cannot define their own paths through the gateway.

ip classless

Tightens security by ensuring that IP-header packets cannot define their own paths through the gateway.

ip domain-lookup

Enables IP domain-name lookups.


Step 2 In global configuration mode, enter domain-name service commands to support EXEC shell users:

AS5400(config)# ip host mymap 172.22.53.101
AS5400(config)# ip domain-name mydomain.com
AS5400(config)# ip name-server 172.22.11.10
AS5400(config)# ip name-server 172.22.11.11

Table 8 describes the commands in the example.

Table 8 Domain-Name Commands

Command
Purpose
ip host mymap 172.22.53.101

Creates a local name-to-address map. When the gateway is not entered in a DNS server, this map is useful.

ip domain-name mydomain.com

Tells the gateway how to qualify DNS lookups. In this example, mydomain.com is appended to the end of each looked-up name.

ip name-server 172.22.11.10
ip name-server 172.22.12.11

Specifies the primary and secondary name servers. The ip name-server command is used for mapping names to IP addresses.



Testing Asynchronous Shell Connections

This task verifies that the following components are working:

The physical asynchronous data path

Basic modem links

Basic IP functionality to support shell sessions

The Cisco IOS software provides a command-line interface (CLI) called the EXEC that can be accessed by dialing in with a modem. The EXEC provides access to terminal-shell services (no PPP) to do the following:

Modify configuration files

Change passwords

Troubleshoot possible problems including modem connections

Access other network resources by using Telnet

During this task, some administrators try to make complex services function, such as PPP-based web browsing. Do not jump ahead. Many other elements still must be configured (for example, PPP and IPCP). The asynchronous-shell test ensures that the EXEC login prompt can be accessed by a client modem. Taking a layered approach to building a network isolates problems and saves you time.

To test asynchronous-shell connections, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Locate a client PC, client modem, and analog line. From the client PC, open a terminal emulation program (such as HyperTerminal, not dial-up networking) and connect to the client modem. Figure 4 shows the network environment for this test.

Figure 4 Test Environment

Step 2 From a terminal emulation program, test your EIA/TIA-232 connection to the client modem. Enter the at command. The modem returns the prompt OK.

at
OK


Note To learn more about the at command set, see the various references available online at the Technical Assistance Center website at
http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/Support/PSP/psp_view.pl?p=Internetworking:ASYNC&s=Implementation_and_Configuration


Step 3 Dial the PRI telephone number assigned to the gateway (in this example, the number is 5554100). After the modem successfully connects, a connect message appears.

atdt 5554100
CONNECT 33600/REL - LAPM


Note Many modems support the a/ command, which recalls the last at command. The ath command hangs up a modem call. The atdl command dials the last telephone number.


Step 4 Log in to the EXEC session on the gateway (from the client PC):

This is a secured device.
Unauthorized use is prohibited by law.

User Access Verification

Username: Harry
Password:

AS5400>

Step 5 Identify the line where the call landed. The following example shows that line TTY 216 accepted the call. The call has been up and active for 30 seconds.

AS5400# show caller
                                                Active    Idle
  Line         User               Service       Time      Time
  con 0        admin              TTY           00:39:09  00:00:00
  tty 216      Harry               TTY           00:00:30  00:00:07
 
AS5400# show caller user Harry

  User: Harry, line tty 216, service TTY
        Active time 00:00:42, Idle time 00:00:19
  Timeouts:            Absolute  Idle      Idle
                                 Session   Exec
      Limits:          -         -         00:10:00
      Disconnect in:   -         -         00:09:40
  TTY: Line 1/00
  DS0: (slot/unit/channel)=2/0/18
  Line: Baud rate (TX/RX) is 115200/115200, no parity, 1 stopbits, 8 databits
  Status: Ready, Active, No Exit Banner
  Capabilities: No Flush-at-Activation, Hardware Flowcontrol In
                Hardware Flowcontrol Out, Modem Callout, Modem RI is CD
                Integrated Modem
  Modem State: Ready


Note The show caller command was added to the Cisco IOS software in Cisco IOS Release 11.3 AA and Release 12.0 T. If your software release does not support this command, use the show user command.


Step 6 Test the IP functionality to support shell sessions. From the gateway, use Telnet to access another device in your network.

AS5400# telnet 171.68.186.49
Trying 171.68.186.49 ... Open
