II. OBJECTIVES:


You think a router was tough to understand before? Now it gets really tough. We start with the command list for a Cisco router. And it goes downhill fast from there.

V. INTRODUCTION:


The router is the key to networking. Knowing the router commands and CLI is the key to success in this field.



VI. CONTENT:


In this class we use Cisco routers. The Cisco routers are of course aged and not the latest. As a matter of fact, the routers are so old that Cisco no longer supports them.  But and it is a big but, the commands to be learned in this chapter will travel well to the newer versions of routers and switches. These router commands are issued using the CLI from Cisco.

A router must be configured to operate on the network for which it is installed. Configuration of a router means basically that you tell the routers what their addresses are, their speed, communication channels, protocol supported and other information necessary. This is done by issuing Router Commands in the CLI.

Most equipment on networks falls under the auspices of some sort of Configuration Control.

The bugaboo of technicians. This lecture is on why it is important and why becoming an expert in this field means an expert in .Documentation

Network Mapping




VII. SUMMARY:


Configuration of a router is key to money, money,money in this field.
