Please help: Frame relay switch interface fluctuating

OSPF.gif

I am trying to simulate a OSPF LAB using GNS3. I am using a router as  a frame relay switch. In the design I have Hub router and a spoke  router.

Problem is that, when I am using "neighbour 192.168.1.11"  command under the "router ospf 1" command, frame relay switch interface  start fluctuating.

I am watching the process on the hub router  using "ip ospf neighbour". As soon the dead timer expires, Frame relay  switch both or a single interface goes down. I dont understand why the  interface on frame relay switch interface goes up and down.

Any idea?

Please help...

Remove the "keepalive 2" from all frame-relay interfaces.

Hello Abhijit,

If u go through your configuration carefully u will find that you have configured your hub and spoke router interfaces for 128k but the DCE end i mean frame relay switch is providing 64k clocking.

I think make it 128000, and probably remove your keepalive 2 command and leave it to its default setting. hope it will help.

Cheers!
