Can please some one help me
I have a Cisco CAT2900 switch and im having trouble pinging it, even though it is processing data and makes my home network live. My PC is connected to fa0/2 port annd port fa0/1 is plugged into my Linksys router acting as the gateway to the Internet.
Now all is fine on the network I can browse the web and router but I cant ping the switch.
I have a been onto the switch using a console cable in back of the switch and configured the IP as 192.168.0.3/24 on VLAN1 (Bare in mind that the Linksys router uses the private IP of 192.168.1.1..etc...) but im still unable to ping the switch.
Would I have to ensure VLAN 1 is still the default vlan, could it of been changed for example to vlan 2??? I have noticed when I do a show runing-config that every port has VLAN 200, what is this?? Why the 200.
What is the basic way to configure an IP for a switch so that I can ping it, im sure ive set it correct at the privelage prompt -
switch>#ip address 192.168.0.3 255.255.255.0
Just this cmd give the switch a IP so you can telnet into it and ping it or is there more I need to do, like assign it to a port etc..
Any help much appreciated.
