How to enable IP SLA Responder in a monitored device?

If your destination device is a Cisco Router, it is mandatory to enable the IP SLA Responder in it. Open a CLI session on the destination router and follow the below steps.

  1. To enable privileged EXEC mode:
    Router › enable
  2. To enable the global configuration mode:
    Router#configure terminal
  3. To enable the IP SLA responder
    Router(config)#ip sla responder
    Router(config)#ip sla monitor responder

Note: Enter any one of the command to enable IP SLA responder as it varies according to the IOS versions. If multiple destination devices (Ciso devices) are connected to the source, it is important to configure the IP SLA Resonder in each of those devices.
