Creating command IP on switch

I currently have to console into one of my switches that uses a private 172.x.x.x address and want to give it a command IP address in order to SSH into it. I'm not sure what the commands would be to do this....any help would be greatly appreciated!!

To access a switch remotely you need a L3 vlan interface that is up/up with an IP address. Assuming vlan 1 interface on your switch

int vlan 1

ip address 192.168.5.10 255.255.255.0

ip default-gateway 192.168.5.1

where 192.168.5.1 is the L3 routed interface for vlan 1.

Re: Creating command IP on switch

Hi,

I'm sorry I'm not able to understand what your requirement is. Do you wish to enable SSH in place of telnet OR trying to access teh switch through console?

Re: Creating command IP on switch

I know how to enable SSH or telnet, what I want to know is how to set up the command IP address on the switch so that I no longer have to console into the switch to get into it.

I believe Jon answered my question....thanks Jon!
