Simple Switch configuration
Posted on 2008-10-13
So, I got the hang of basic router configuration. Now I'm having little difficulty understanding how a switch is configured. I have the following setup in a lab environment: 2 host machine (1 Vista, 1 Unix box) and 1 Vista machine used to monitor. I just have one switch (Cisco 3750). I looked at several command books and websites for help but I haven't found anything that gives me clear understanding of how I can configure the switch and configure the host machines to establish connection. For example, on a router, I configure an interface (i.e. g1/0). This didn't work the same way on a switch and there is "vlan"? I'm looking for the simplest configuration for me to establish connection between the two hosts through this switch. Can someone lead me to a helpful website or teach me what steps are needed from A-Z to accomplish this? Thank you in advance!
