Hi every body!

If i have to select 24 fastethernet ports

I can use:

interface range fastethernet 0/1-24


But i also encountered this:

interface range fa0/1-24

Can the above command be typed as

" interface range f0/1-24"

thanks a lot!

I have this problem too.

Yes, you can.

switch(config)#int range f?

FastEthernet >> as you can see there is no other option for anything beginning with "f".

switch(config)#int range f ?

<1-6> FastEthernet interface number

switch(config)#int range f 1/24



switch(config)#interf r f1/1-24

The command f0/1 - 24 will work, as will fa0/1 - 24, as will fastEthernet0/1 - 24. The IOS knows that you are abbreviating FastEthernet by using f or fa (or anything that spells the word out) so it will work, since there are no other interface types that start with f (at least on most switches anyway).

yes this command will also work fine.

Switch(config)#int range f0/1-24
