I know that you can assign an IP add. to each VLAN on a switch for management and testing. I noticed that the option to configure an IP on each of the switchports is also available. I remember reading that this wasn't possible during my CCNA studies.
So my question is in what scenarios would you configure an IP address on an individual switchport?
If you have a Switch which is L3 capable then you can configure any port for L3 routing. You can have an IP address assigned to that port and perform routing at that port level. In layer 2 Switch you can only do this at VLAN interface.
IF you have a L3 switch in hand, such as the 3750, you could create networks off each port and the port address would become the Gateway. You also do not have make every port a router port so you could have a mixed environment - such switch ports and some routing ports.
When doing this remember to put the following command "ip routing" so it turns the routing processor on.
Depends if it is a layer 2 or a layer 3 switch , if its a layer 3 switch like a 3550 or 3560 then yes you can put an address on the interface itself , this is called a routed port as opposed to a switchport . You specify if you want it as a switchport or a routed port by using the switchport or no switchport command which makes it a routed port.
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
