I prepare the CCNA and got recently a couple of 2950 and 3550 switches to use as a lab. I have never been in a cisco switch before. I have problems getting a telnet connection working.
Here is what i have done so far:
line vty 0 15
login authentication default
ip default-gateway 10.2.255.254
ip address 10.2.10.200 255.255.0.0
interface fastEthernet 0/1
switchport mode access
I still cant ping the switch or access it via telnet. I have plugged a crossover cable from fa0/1 to the wall.
show ip interfaces switchport:
Administrative Mode: static access
Operational Mode: down
Administrative Trunking Encapsulation: dot1q
Negotiation of Trunking: Off
Access Mode VLAN: 1 (default)
Trunking Native Mode VLAN: 1 (default)
What am i missing?
