Can a loopback interface be created on the 3548 switch using IOS 12.0(5.2)XU?

I have this problem too.

Hi,

The 3548 is not a Layer 3 switch, it won't support loopback interfaces.

HTH, please rate if it does help,

Mohammed Mahmoud.

Michael,

As Mohammed stated loopback interfaces aren't supported on layer 2 switches. The reason why it doesn't support loopback int on layer 2 switch is because there's no benefit in having one as the VLAN interface itself is a virtual interface.
