Page 1 of 6 Packet Tracer - Configuring Initial Switch Settings Topology Objectives Part 1: Verify the Default Switch Configuration Part 2: Configure a Basic Switch Configuration Part 3: Configure a MOTD Banner Part 4: Save Configuration Files to NVRAM Part 5: Configure S2 Background In this activity, you will perform basic switch configurations. You will secure access to the command-line interface (CLI) and console ports using encrypted and plain text passwords. You will also learn how to configure messages for users logging into the switch. These banners are also used to warn unauthorized users that access is prohibited. Part 1: Verify the Default Switch Configuration Step 1: Enter privileged EXEC mode. You can access all switch commands from privileged EXEC mode. However, because many of the privileged commands configure operating parameters, privileged access should be password-protected to prevent unauthorized use. The privileged EXEC command set includes those commands contained in user EXEC mode, as well as the configure command through which access to the remaining command modes are gained. a. Click S1 and then the CLI tab. Press Enter. b. Enter privileged EXEC mode by entering the enable command: Switch> enable Switch# Notice that the prompt changed in the configuration to reflect privileged EXEC mode.

    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.
