Table 13-2 VINES: Client Cannot Connect to Server over PSN

Possible Problem

Solution

Address mapping error

Step 1 Use the show running-config privileged exec command to view the configuration of the router.

Step 2 For X.25 environments, make sure that LAN protocol-to-X.121

address mapping specified in x25 map vines interface configuration command entries use the VINES addresses and X.121 addresses of the destination routers. Confirm that the destination addresses used in the command entries are correct.

Step 3 For Frame Relay environments, make sure that the LAN

protocol-to-DLCI1 address mapping specified in frame-relay map command entries use the VINES address of the destination router and the DLCI of the local interface. Confirm that the destination address and the local DLCI used in the command entries are correct.

PVC2 is not set up

Step 1 Use the show running-config privileged exec command to view the configuration of the local and remote routers. Make sure there is an x25 pvc n vines address interface configuration command specified on the local and remote routers. This command sets up a PVC between the two routers.

Step 2 If the command is not present, add it to the router configuration.

1 DLCI = Data Link Connection Identifier

2 PVC = permanent virtual circuit
