Join Denise Allen-Hoyt for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Up and Running with Cisco CLI Switch Configuration.
- If you're a premium member of Lynda.com you will have access to the Exercise Files in this course. I have the Exercise Files here in a folder on my desktop. They're Cisco Packet Tracer files. So you'll need to have access to Packet Tracer. The Packet Tracer software is available to students enrolled in a Cisco Networking Academy course. The files, as you see, are organized by chapter and by movie number. So you can just right into the course at any point you wish.
Down at the bottom of the list are two reference documents. Let me scroll down and show you those. Including the commands I used in this course and a list of the IP addresses, subnet masks, and default gateways for each of the devices in my network topology. If you're not a premium member, you can still follow along with me.
