There are quite a few things to know before you can actually administer your Cisco switch. You have get information concerning the IP address or the DNS name of the switches. You should also obtain information on the logins you can use. And lastly, you need to find our which Ethernet port the device is connected to.

The configuration of the Cisco switch commands can be done via web administration interface. These commands may vary depending solely on the type of switches you use. An example of these switches is the show-type of switches. The following are examples of the commands for the show-type of switch.

The ‘show history’ provides information on the previous commands you have uses. Another example is the ‘show interfaces fast Ethernet 0/x’ which is used to illustrate the interface that is being used by the recent Cisco switch. On the other hand, the ‘show flash’ command is a good way to retrieve the files and directors of the switch flash. To display the IP address configuration for VLAN, the command ‘show interfaces VLAN 1′ can be used. If you wish to choose the active port security , then all you have to do is to type the command ‘show port-security interface [address]‘ The ‘ show version’ command is used when you want to look for certain hardware information whereas the command ‘show line’ can provide line information, hence the name. When typing the command ‘show line console 0′, specific information on a particular line can be used. To achieve the duplex setting for your switch, the ‘duplex’ command can be used. And to assign a switch hostname, the term ‘hostname’ should be typed.

Apart from all the aforementioned commands, there are still a few commands that you can use to configure your switch. A little research can provide you all the information you need.
