connecting a computer to Cisco router/switch
Posted on 2008-06-13
I have some beginner questions about working with Cisco routers and switches
1- When connecting a computer to a Cisco router/switch we can use:
Rolled cable, AUX (is this RJ45 where cat 5 cable plugs in?)
2-Do we need to open CMD DOS prompt to talk to the router or a switch or do we need to have a special software to install in order to access Cisco Command line?
if a router or a switch is not close to the computer? can we just use an IP address of the router or switch?
3- I heard about serial link when using WAN, what type of connection is this on the router? is it RJ45 where cat5 plugs in or is it like a telephone jack RJ11?
4- if I have wriiten commands in Noted pad, how do I copy and paste them to Cisco command line editor?
