Cabling Issue Resolved


My V.35 cabling issue from yesterday has been resolved.  It was not a DTE/DCE issue.  Rather, it was that a couple of DTE cables were bad.  They were non-Cisco cables that appeared to be the correct pinouts, but apparently were not.  I scrounged a couple of Cisco-branded DTE cables, and the issue was resolved.
