10/16/2017 TestOut LabSim 1/1 6.2.2 Switch IP Configuration Facts Keep in mind the following facts about IP addresses configured on switches: Basic switches operate at Layer 2 and are therefore able to perform switching functions with no IP address configured. A switch does not need to have an IP address configured unless you want to manage it with an in-band management utility, such as SSH or a web- based interface. Switch ports do not have IP addresses unless the switch is performing Layer 3 switching, which is not supported on all switches. The switch itself has only one active IP address. The IP address identifies the switch as a host on the network. To configure the switch IP address, set the address on the VLAN interface (a logical interface defined on the switch to allow management functions). By default, the VLAN is VLAN 1. Use the following commands to configure the switch IP address:

    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.
