In this tutorial we will discuss Configuring a Switch Management Address, which is the 184.108.40.206 Lab of Packet tracer. In previous tutorial we discuss about CCNA 220.127.116.11 – ARP Spoofing.
Objectives of 18.104.22.168 Lab
- Configure a Basic Network Device
- Verify and Test Network Connectivity
Required resources for Configuring a switch management address
- 1 Switch (Cisco 2960 with Cisco IOS Release 15.0(2) lanbasek9 image or comparable)
- 1 PC (Windows 7 or 8 with terminal emulation program, such as Tera Term)
- Console cables to configure the Cisco IOS devices via the console ports
- Ethernet cables as shown in the topology
Configure a Basic Network Device
In this section we will discuss that how we can set Hostname, Interface IP address and Passwords.
Cable the network
Establish a connection between switch from PC-A with console cable.
Basic Configuration switch setting
Enter in Privileged EXEC mode.
Enter global configuration mode and assign the switch hostname
Switch# configure terminal
Switch(config)# hostname S1
Configure the switch password access
S1(config)# enable secret class
Prevent unwanted DNS lookups.
S1(config)# no ip domain – lookup
Configure a login MOTD banner
S1(config)# banner motd #
Enter Text message. End with the character ‘#’.
Unauthorized access is strictly prohibited. #
Now we have to verify our network setting and configurations.
Return to privileged EXEC mode from user EXEC mode.
Enter global configuration mode to set the SVI IP address to allow remote Switch management.
S1# config t
S1#(config)# interface vlan 1
S1(config-if)# ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0
S1(config-if)# no shut
Restrict console port access. The default configuration is to allow all console connections with no password needed.
S1(config)# line con 0
Configure the VTY line for the switch to allow Telnet access. If you do not configure a VTY password,you will not be able to telnet to the switch.
S1(config)#line vty 0 4
S1(config-line)# password cisco
Now we have to give IP address to our PC interface, you can see here how we can give IP to our pc lab.
Now we have to check the connectivity is confirmed or not so here we have to do some following steps.
Display the Switch confirgurations
S1# show run
Verify VLAN1 and other IP interfaces
S1# Show ip interface brief
Now check the end-to-end connectivity
Open Command promote and ping the IP address
Ping the PC – A address first.
Ping the SVI management address of S1.
Test and verify the remote management of S1
Type your telenet password and enter in the switch now, save the configuration by this command
S1# Copy run start
And then type enter and then exit.
