The remaining cables I needed arrived from Hong Kong today, so I have my home lab complete! Everything is cabled up in IPE standard topology. I spent some time this afternoon properly labeling all the interfaces, and making sure everything came up OK. I did run into 1 bad DTC/DTE crossover cable…good thing I had some more laying around.

I think tonight I will work on getting the frame relay up and going, assigning IP addresses, etc.

Here are some pictures, taken on my new blackberry curve!
