Basic Switch Configurations Command


Basic Switch Configurations Command

In this article I will introduce the Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS) command line interface (CLI) for the 2960 series switch. You will need to logon to a switch and become familiar with the different levels of access on the switch. You will also become familiar with the commands available to you in each mode (user or privileged) and the switch help facility, history, and editing features.

User vs. Privileged Mode

User mode is indicated with the > next to the switch name. You can look at settings but can not make changes from user mode. In Privilege mode, indicated by the #, you can do anything. To get into privilege mode the keyword is enable.

HELP

To view all commands available from this mode type:?This will give you the list of all available commands for the switch in your current mode. You can also use the question mark after you have started typing a command. For example if you want to use a show command but you do not remember which one it is, use the ? as this will output all commands that you can use with the show command.

Configuration Mode

From privilege mode you can enter configuration mode by typing config term command you can exit configuration mode type type end or <CTL>+z

Configuration of Cisco 2960 Switch

To practically implement these command either create a simple topology on packet tracer or download this topology.
Example topology for basic switch commands

Now click on any switch and configure it as given below
To know all available command on user exec mode type ? and press enter

Switch>?
Exec commands:
    [1-99]         Session number to resume
    connect        Open a terminal connection
    disconnect     Disconnect an existing network connection
    enable         Turn on privileged commands
    exit           Exit from the EXEC
    logout         Exit from the EXEC
    ping           Send echo messages

[Output is omitted]
Three command can be used to logout from terminal use any one
