Cisco switch (2900XL) easy question

I can't set the logical IP (Sc0?) on the interface manually so that I can telnet/ping/etc the switch.

I've erased the STARTUPCONFIG and RELOADED to get a clean boot.

I run the setup program and I can set it that way but I can't set everything up manually.

I looked in the Cisco website and there are commands there (SET) but they aren't working.  Perhaps I'm in the wrong mode?

Hi Martin,

Just connect to the switch using the console port and use the following command:

enable (to enter superuser mode - you will also need to enter your enable password here)
config terminal (to enter config mode)
interface vlan1 (to enter interface config)
ip address <address> <mask>

Note that to telnet, you'll also need to set a password. This can be done from config mode with the following commands:

line vty 0 14 (for any telnet logon)
password <password>

Also to telnet, you'll want an enable password
enable secret ]the password]

Make sure you type "write mem" or "copy runn start" after you do what Mary said, or the config will be gone when you reboot!. If you've ever cofigured a Cisco router, it's an identical user interface.
