Anyone know how to make a port on the 3550 a routed port instead of a switchport? I need to put an ip address on the interface to communicate with my TFTP server. It does not take the "no switchport" command. I check the technotes and no mention about turning it into a routed port.
That is old so maybe it didn't have much functionality back then . All you have to do then is put an address on the vlan 1 SVI and give it a default gateway . If you are just tranferring it from your pc then set your pc address into the same address space make sure your tftpserver program is running and start your transfer.
no ip routing
int vlan 1
ip adresss xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
ip default-gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
address of the gateway off the subnet.
BTW, you don't necessarily need the interface to be L3. you can make it "switchport access vlan x", then create an SVI, interface vlan x and put the ip address on that interface vlan, it will work the same way as having a physical L3 port.
