Cisco Router Configuration Example

In the Configuring a Serial Interface : How to Configure the Serial Interface of a CISCO Router., I discussed the configuration process of a serial port of a CISCO router. After the discussion there is an exercise. The solution of that exercise is provided in this page:

Problem Definition:

You have given a CISCO router. You have to configure base on the following specifications:

  • The router will be a DCE and bandwidth will be 256Kb.
  • Assign IP address ( ) on serial 3/0 port.
  • Make sure that the router configured port is on.

Command line of configuring a router

Router#configure terminal 
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#interface serial 3/0
Router(config-if)#ip address
Router(config-if)#bandwidth 256
Router(config-if)#clock rate 56000
Router(config-if)#no shutdown 

if you have any difficulties of the above code then please read Configuring a Serial Interface : How to Configure the Serial Interface of a CISCO Router.
