CCNA Exploration LAN Switching and Wireless: Basic Switch Concepts and Configuration Lab 2.5.3 Managing IOS and Configuration Files Scenario In this lab, you will explore file management and password recovery procedures on a Cisco Catalyst switch. Task 1: Cable and Initialize the Network Step 1: Cable a network. Cable a network that is similar to the one in the topology diagram. Then, create a console connection to the switch. If necessary, refer to Lab 1.3.1. 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. Set up a console connection to the switch. Erase the configuration on the switch. Step 3: Create a basic configuration. Configure the switch with the following hostname and access passwords. Then enable secret passwords on the switch. Hostname Console Password Telnet Password Command Password ALSwitch cisco cisco class Create VLAN 99. Assign IP address 172.17.99.11 to this interface. Assign the Fast Ethernet 0/18 port to this VLAN. Step 4: Configure the host attached to the switch. Configure the host to use the IP address, mask, and default gateway identified in the Addressing table. This host acts as the TFTP server in this lab. Step 5: Verify connectivity. To verify that the host and switch are correctly configured, ping the switch IP address from the host. Was the ping successful? _______________________ If the answer is no, troubleshoot the host and switch configurations. Task 2: Starting and Configuring the TFTP Server Step 1: Start up and configure the TFTP server. The TFTP server that was used in the development of this lab is the Solar Winds server, available at h t t p : / / w w w . s o l a r w i n d s s o f t w a r e . c o m / t o o l s e t s / t o o l s / t f t p - s e r v e r . a s p x The labs in your classroom may be using a different TFTP server. If so, check with your instructor for the operating instructions for the TFTP server in use. Start the server on the host using the Start menu: Start > All Programs > SolarWinds 2003 Standard Edition > TFTP Server. The server should start up and acquire the IP address of the Ethernet interface. The server uses the C:\TFTP-Root directory by default. Step 2: Verify connectivity to the TFTP server. Verify that the TFTP server is running and that it can be pinged from the switch. All contents are Copyright © 1992–2007 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
