Frame-relay switch config - frame-relay intf-type dce

Hmm... I was entering the config for my frame-relay switch, and started getting this error;

'route command not allowed between two DTE interfaces'

Which was particularly annoying, as I only had a single DTE interface connected (still waiting on my remaining DB60-DB60 cables to arrive..)

A quick google led me to a forum which stated you must enter the following command;

'frame-relay intf-type dce'

For each interface on your frame-relay switch..


This command was accepted fine. What I failed to do (facepalm!) was to then re-add the route commands that had previously been rejected, so I spent a good 10-15 minutes troubleshooting why my circuit would not come up.. Once the routes were re-added, everything went swimmingly!
