Routing packets to Blade
Network-Module Routing Configuration (IOS)
Once the Network-Module interface on the IOS side is configured, the configuration of a route is necessary. A specific route to redirect traffic from the router to the Network-Module internal interface is required.
This is achieved by creating a route to a single host (or ip address) specifying the ip address previously assigned through configuration of the Network-Module and using the 255.255.255.255 network mask to redirect to the Network-Module's interface.
First get to the IOS configuration mode:
Router# configure terminal Router(config)# ip route 10.10.3.188 255.255.255.255 Integrated-Service-Engine1/0
After the configuration of the Network-Module's interface and route is completed, we should be able to connect to the console of the Network-Module by typing
Router# service-module integrated-Service-Engine 1/0 session
