I just started configuring my cisco catalyst 2950 switch. Basically im preparing for my CCENT exams my basic configuration is as follows.
My Laptop is connected to the console port
I'm connected to the internet via my wireless
I'm connected to the switch port via my NIC card
I have configured the host name .
I have configured VTY , Vlan 1 etc
Now i have configured an ip for the router and a subnet mask ( i just made a class c adress up and gave it a class c subnet mask)
For the default gateway i wasnt sure what to put so i just put the one i currently use on my wireless connection
I configured all the passwords etc required but when i try to telnet i can't im pretty sure my passwords etc are all well configured i think i messed at the ip/gateway stage of things because i dont know if when i telnet using tera term it try's through my internet connection as opposed down the wire.
if you could offer any help that would be great.
p.s im using windows7
