Hello, noobie here. I've just recently purchased a 3 routers and 3 switches. 2 of the routers I'm unable to get them to go through this;


R2(config-line)#login

Which should come up w/ this so I can assign a interface an IP address.

R2(config)#int s0

but it keeps staying in the

R2(config-lin)#


Please help, what else do you need?

You are entering:

R2(config)#int s0

but the router does not go into interface mode (as is illustrated by Collin). The most likely cause of this is that your router does not have an interface serial0. Perhaps it is serial0/0 or something else. The easy way to know what interfaces the router has is to execute the command show ip interface brief (execute this from the command prompt - not from the config prompt).

It looks like your in the VTY lines. To enter into interface configuration, try something like this-


Router(config)#interface fastethernet0/0

Router(config-if)#ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

Router(config-if)#no shutdown


Hope that helps.

Excellent!


Yes, after more DD I believe it should be the serial 0/0, hopefully.


Thank you!


Regards.

Yes, the show ip interface brief gave me what I needed it was serial1/0, nothings ever easy.
