In this tutorial we will discuss Configuring a Switch Management Address, which is the 2.3.3.4 Lab of Packet tracer. In previous tutorial we discuss about CCNA 5.3.3.2 – ARP Spoofing.



2.3.3.4 Packet tracer lab - Configuring a Switch Management Address Topology
2.3.3.4 Packet tracer lab – Configuring a Switch Management Address TopologyIn this we will Configuring a switch management address so here we have topology and addressing table of 2.3.3.4 Packet tracer lab.



Objectives of 2.3.3.4 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.

Switch> enable

Switch#


Enter global configuration mode and assign the switch hostname

Switch# configure terminal

Switch(config)# hostname S1

S1(config)#


Configure the switch password access

S1(config)# enable secret class

S1(config)#


 

Prevent unwanted DNS lookups.

S1(config)# no ip domain – lookup

S1(config)#


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.

S1> enable

Password: class

S1#


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

S1(config-if)# exit

S1(config)#


Restrict console port access. The default configuration is to allow all console connections with no password needed.

S1(config)# line con 0

S1(config-line)#password cisco

S1(config-line)# login

S1(config-line)# exit

S1(config)#


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

S1(config-line)# login

S1(config-line)# end

S1#


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

2.3.3.4 Packet tracer lab - Configuring a Switch Management Address Show running configuration
2.3.3.4 Packet tracer lab – Configuring a Switch Management Address Show running configuration

Verify VLAN1 and other IP interfaces

S1# Show ip interface brief

2.3.3.4 Packet tracer lab - Configuring a Switch Management Address Show ip interface brief
2.3.3.4 Packet tracer lab – Configuring a Switch Management Address 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.
