ProcedureHow to Configure Synchronous Devices

  1. Physically install the interface card into the local machine, if necessary.

    Follow the instructions in the manufacturer's documentation.

  2. Connect the cables from the CSU/DSU to the interface.

    If necessary, connect cables from the CSU/DSU to the leased-line jack or similar connector.

  3. Configure the CSU/DSU, as instructed in the documentation from the manufacturer or network provider.

    Note –

    The provider from whom you rented the leased line might supply and configure the CSU/DSU for your link.

  4. Configure the interface card, if necessary, as instructed in the interface documentation.

    The configuration of the interface card involves the creation of a startup script for the interface. The router at LocalCorp in the leased-line configuration that is shown in Figure 16–2 uses an HSI/P interface card.

    The following script, hsi-conf, starts the HSI/P interface.

    /opt/SUNWconn/bin/hsip_init hihp1 speed=1536000 mode=fdx loopback=no \
    nrzi=no txc=txc rxc=rxc txd=txd rxd=rxd signal=no 2>&1 > /dev/null
