Hello,


When I'm on our main router I might need to telnet to a number of routers from that during that session, rather than me typing "telnet 192.168.1.1" etc etc is there a way I can craete a short cut so I might just type "r1" for router 1 and it telnets to the router?  I guess I could use the "ip host" option.

You could create this alias


config t

alias exec r1 telnet 192.168.1.1




that should work.

Hi,


To define a static host name-to-address mapping in the host cache, use the   ip host global configuration command. To remove the    name-to-address mapping, use the no form of this command.


ip host name [tcp-port-number] address1 [address2...address8]


Config# ip host ROUTER_NAME INT_Address


Example: ip host lab-a 192.168.5.1


or Config# ip host RTR_NAME INT_ADD1 INT_ADD2 INT_ADD3


Example: ip host lab-a 192.168.5.1 205.23.4.2 199.2.3.2 - (for e0, s0, s1)


Hope to Help !!
