Page 1 of 14 Lab 2.5.1: Basic Switch Configuration Topology This lab has been slightly modified from the original for NETLAB AE compatibility. Addressing Table Device Interface IP Address Subnet Mask Default Gateway PC1 NIC 172.17.99.21 255.255.255.0 172.17.99.11 S1 VLAN99 172.17.99.11 255.255.255.0 172.17.99.1 Learning Objectives Upon completion of this lab, you will be able to: Cable a network according to the topology diagram Clear an existing configuration on a switch Examine and verify the default configuration Create a basic switch configuration, including a name and an IP address Configure passwords to ensure that access to the CLI is secured Configure switch port speed and duplex properties for an interface Configure basic switch port security Manage the MAC address table Assign static MAC addresses Add and move hosts on a switch Scenario In this lab, you will examine and configure a standalone LAN switch. Although a switch performs basic functions in its default out-of-the-box condition, there are a number of parameters that a network administrator should modify to ensure a secure and optimized LAN. This lab introduces you to the basics of switch configuration.

This document is Cisco Public Information. Page 2 of 14 Task 1: Cable, Erase, and Reload the Switch Step 1: Cable a network. Cable a network that is similar to the one in the topology diagram. Create a console connection to the switch. If necessary, refer to Lab 1.3.1 on how to create a console connection. You can use any current switch in your lab as long as it has the required interfaces shown in the topology. The output shown in this lab is from a 2960 switch. If you use other switches, the switch outputs and interface descriptions may appear different. Step 2: Clear the configuration on the switch. Clear the configuration on the switch using the procedure in Appendix 1. Task 2: Verify the Default Switch Configuration Step 1: Enter privileged mode. You can access all the switch commands in privileged mode. However, because many of the privileged commands configure operating parameters, privileged access should be password-protected to prevent unauthorized use. You will set passwords in Task 3. 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. Enter privileged EXEC mode by entering the enable command....
