Frame-Relay: PVC test with ping to own interface

Let’s say that you have a link configured with Frame-Relay and from time to time you observe that the link is having some strange problems. Since you cannot be sure that the link is provided 100% error free you want to do your own tests. You want to see if the Frame-Relay between R0 and R1 is correctly configured. In order to verify this you want to set up the R0 to test the PVC to R1, by sending traffic to its own IP address.

Please download the topology here. The Frame-Relay between R0 and R1 is already configured.
