Serial Interface IP vs Ethernet Interface IP

Serial Interface IP vs Ethernet Interface IP

Serial Interface IP vs Ethernet Interface IP

Hi there

If there is a router with a particular Ip address for its Serial interface (the one connected to the CSU/DSU) (Ex. An another IP address for the Ethernet interface (Ex. Which address the incomming frames tru the Serial interface will have for destination IP address, the one of the Serial interface or the one of the Ethernet interface ??? Is there  a book  or another reference that explains this in more detail or whats  going on inside the router or what the software really do. I had going tru CISCO Books and I dont know if its me but sometimes the explanations seems to be ambiguos or needed a more detailed explanations. Thanks in advance for your help.



RE: Serial Interface IP vs Ethernet Interface IP

Niether.  Any incoming data from the serial port will
by default (unless going through telnet service) will go
to the internal CPU of the router.  That's one way of
programming configuration data for the router.

Alternatively, if coming in through ethernet and I'm pretty
sure you address or whatever the DSU/CSU
ethernet IP address, one can (with the proper login/password)
access the same configuration data as the serial port.

The serial port may also require login/password.

There are some free lab notebooks on the web that might
help (at least it's different). And although a "lab manual"
there is a lot of good text in there as well.  Besides,
the cost is free.  Note that there is a volume 1 and 2.
Both are free downloads.


Hope that this helps.
