first of i'm not sure if this is in the right place but i'm starting out looking at getting my ccna through getting ccent then full ccna. I've got a bit of a question which might seem a bit stupid. I have my 3524 switch - it boots up with just the default vlan and all the ports in that vlan. I set up an ip address on that vlan and then enable telnet with a password - if i connect a laptop to a switch port i can telnet to the switch. Now i'm sure at my workplace we have managemen vlans but i'm sure they are some kind of virtual interface with no physical port attatched - i'm just wondering how u set telnet to work with a differant vlan with no physical port (i appreciate a vlan stand for virtual lan!). I'm just wondering how you change the management vlan or configure it with no physical port - although i might be missing the point!
Also i'm also trying to get my 3524 back to its default settings - if i want to change the config reg on a swich - it has to be in rommon mode ? Because my config-reg mode is 0xF and no matter what i do in global config i cant clear it!
Also -i'll say hello now and apologise for a few newb questions coming up over the next couple of weeks
