I stumbled across this post about another method to create Frame Relay mappings:
Guys,I’m just going through the [IPexpert] audio bootcamp for Frame-Relay and I’ve come across something I’m not sure of.In the lecure Scott talks about using the “frame-relay interface-dlci protocol ip” command instead of the “frame-relay map” command. I’ve never personally configured this so decided to check it out on the doc cd and found the following under the command reference :-
protocol ip ip-address
(Optional) Indicates the IP address of the main interface of a new router or access server onto which a router configuration file is to be automatically installed over a Frame Relay network. Use this option only when this device will act as the BOOTP server for automatic installation over Frame Relay.
Has anybody actually used this command before? I would try myself but my racks elsewhere at the moment. I’m sure Scott is correct and that Cisco are merely making a recommendation and that it’s not to be used in every day practice for replacing the frame map command.p.s. Couldn’t find any reference to the command in the config guide on the doc cd?
This command is used for auto-install over Frame Relay. Further down the postings a user showed a
successful Frame mapping using this command. The one caveat is that it only works on point-to-point subinterfaces.
