Configure the PC IP address. Part 3: Verify and Test Network Connectivity Display device configuration. Test end-to-end connectivity with ping. Test remote management capabilities with Telnet. Save the switch running configuration file. Part 4: Manage the MAC Address Table Record the MAC address of the host. Determine the MAC addresses that the switch has learned. List the show mac address-table command options. Set up a static MAC address. Background / Scenario Cisco switches can be configured with a special IP address known as switch virtual interface (SVI). The SVI or management address can be used for remote access to the switch to display or configure settings. If the VLAN 1 SVI is assigned an IP address, by default, all ports in VLAN 1 have access to the SVI management IP address. In this lab, you will build a simple topology using Ethernet LAN cabling and access a Cisco switch using the console and remote access methods. You will examine default switch configurations before configuring basic switch settings. These basic switch settings include device name, interface description, local passwords, message of the day (MOTD) banner, IP addressing, setting up a static MAC address, and demonstrating the

Lab – Configuring Basic Switch Settings use of a management IP address for remote switch management. The topology consists of one switch and one host using only Ethernet and console ports. Note : The switch used is a Cisco Catalyst 2960 with Cisco IOS Release 15.0(2) (lanbasek9 image). Other switches and Cisco IOS versions can be used. Depending on the model and Cisco IOS version, the commands available and output produced might vary from what is shown in the labs. Note : Make sure that the switch has been erased and has no startup configuration. Refer to Appendix A for the procedures to initialize and reload devices. Required Resources 1 Switch (Cisco 2960 with Cisco IOS Release 15.0(2) lanbasek9 image or comparable) 1 PC (Windows 7, Vista, or XP with terminal emulation program, such as Tera Term, and Telnet capability) Console cable to configure the Cisco IOS device via the console port Ethernet cable as shown in the topology Part 1: Cable the Network and Verify the Default Switch Configuration In Part 1, you will set up the network topology and verify default switch settings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
