CISCO Router's Ethernet Interface Configuration Exercise

Updated on May 21, 2009

In the Configuring an Ethernet Interface : How to Configure an Ethernet Interface of a CISCO Router, I discussed the configuration process of a Ethernet 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:

  • Configure fastEthernet4/0 port
  • Assign IP address (172.16.56.1/24 )

Command line of configuring a router

Router>enable 
Router#configure terminal 
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#interface fastEthernet4/0
Router(config-if)#ip address 192.16.56.1 255.255.255.0
Router(config-if)#no shutdown 

%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed state to up
Router(config-if)#exit
Router(config)#

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