In this video, Todd Lammle shows you some basic commands to get your layer 2 switches up fast so you can administrate them from a remote location. Switches work by default with all ports enabled by default; however, you need to be able to set an IP address and default gateway in order to perform remote administration. This is a pretty easy setup and configuration, followed by verification commands.
- [Presenter] All right, let's run out to our switches,…and have some fun.…So this'll be switch one.…So I've just tunneled it in, you see can see that it…was connected and saw Carriage attach…to another Cisco device.…So trying to auto-configure itself is very common.…You can turn those off but, not necessary,…you just have to wait for it, though.…So, first thing you always do, set your host name.…Absolutely, gotta type in hostname though.…And set our host name.…Now we can set our passwords, interface descriptions…and so on.…
And I highly recommend that you set your…interface descriptions on your uplinks to other switches.…So we can go ahead and do that and…do show cdp neighbor.…And we should see switch two and switch three and…a couple routers in there but,…I've got two connections to switch two,…and two to switch three on here.…So we can go ahead and we would configure…so it looks like 19, 20, 21, 22, nice.…Alright so enable, set our passwords.…Enable secret Cisco, don't tell anyone,…enable secret Cisco.…
Alright and then we need to do our lines, right?…
