- When connecting to the routers via kermit use /dev/ttyS0 as the
- For Part 5, Exercise 5, right after step 4 (and before step 5):
you need to set the default route of PC3 to Router 2 (such that the
ping reply message returns toward PC2):
PC3# route add default gw 10.0.3.2
- Furthermore, you also need to enable ip forwarding on Router 2
(such that the ping message is now returned to PC2):
Router2 (config)# ip routing
Now you can proceed to Step 5.
- If the route command takes a long time to complete it's most likely looking to resolve the IP addresses into names, so it does DNS lookups (that will eventually fail). To prevent the loss of time, use the -n option of the command that skips the lookup.
