Configuring Switch

I have recently installed 2 switches with the help of an outside vendor. I am somewhat familiard with the procedure to update via settings via the command prompt. But the tech who came out to help me used notepad to sonfigure port settings. I would like to know how this is done.

Re: Configuring Switch

it uses the same commands but you just paste it into hyperterminal eg: to set portfast...

switch#(conf-if) at this prompt paste

int fa0/1

spanning-tree portfast

int fa0/2

spanning-tree portfast

int fa0/3

spannin-tree portfast

etc etc etc

Re: Configuring Switch

It is way faster to configure multiple ports if you write out the configuration in notepad, then cut & paste it into the switch config. Otherwise you will have to type each and every command for each port. It's just a time saving way to do things. (If you need to configure just 1 port, then just do it from the console.) -Tim
