What is initial configuration dialog?
The setup command facility prompts you for basic information about your router and network, and it creates an initial configuration file. After the configuration file is created, you can use the CLI or Security Device Manager to perform additional configuration. Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
What command do you type to save the configuration stored in RAM to Nvram?
What command do you type to save the configuration stored in RAM to NVRAM? Explanation: To copy the running-config to NVRAM so that it will be used if the router is restarted, use the copy running-config startup-config command (copy run start for short).
Which keyboard shortcut can you use to exit the System Configuration dialog on a Cisco networking device and return to privilege
You can exit (Ctrl-C) the System Configuration Dialog and return to privileged EXEC mode without making changes and without going through the entire dialog.

What is IP address of switch?
The IP address is configured under a logical interface, known as the management domain or VLAN. Usually, the default VLAN 1 acts like the switch's own NIC for connecting into a LAN to send IP packets.
What does serial interface mean?
A serial interface is a communication interface between two digital systems that transmits data as a series of voltage pulses down a wire. A "1" is represented by a high logical voltage and a "0" is represented by a low logical voltage.
What is a serial port used for?
A port, or interface, that can be used for serial communication, in which only 1 bit is transmitted at a time. A serial port is a general-purpose interface that can be used for almost any type of device, including modems, mice, and printers (although most printers are connected to a parallel port).
What does a serial port look like?
A serial port is male in gender, and has either 9 pins or 25 pins. The shape of the port is slightly D-shaped. A serial computer port may be used for a mouse, external modem, scanner, or other linking software such as for a personal data assistant (PDA). Only very old computers have a 25-pin serial port.
What is a serial interface on a router?
That serial port is what's called the console port. It is used to access the router console for administration and configuration. This cable is called a Yost Cable, and has a DB9 connector on one end and an RJ45 on the other. This cable is also called a Rollover Cable.
How do I connect two Cisco routers via serial?
There are many ways to connect two routers back-to-back. 1: Connect through Ethernet ports: use a crossover cable to directly connect the routers together through two Ethernet ports. 2: Connect through serial ports: use a DCE/DTE cable to connect the serial ports.
What is serial port in Cisco router?
That serial port is what's called the console port. It is used to access the router console for administration and configuration. This cable is called a Yost Cable, and has a DB9 connector on one end and an RJ45 on the other.
What is serial DCE and DTE?
DTE stands for Data Terminal Equipment, and DCE stands for Data Communications Equipment. DTE is typically either a dumb terminal or the serial port on a computer/workstation. DCE is typically a modem, DSU/CSU, or other piece of data communications equipment, hence the names.
What is the difference between a serial interface and a fast Ethernet interface?
Fast Ethernet uses Ethernet technologies like twisted pair (rj45) and fiber. Serial interfaces use time domain multiplexing (TDM) and use clock speeds to synchronize.
Is serial faster than Ethernet?
Moreover, the serial interface of a router generally hold the traffic of all internal PCs towards the internet. So it has to be faster than internal Ethernet as far as using switches makes any communication between two PCs a one to one communication.
How do I configure a Cisco router?
Step1: Configure Access Passwords.
Step2: Configure a Router Hostname.
Step3: Configure IP addresses for Router Interfaces.
Step4: Configure Routing (Static or Dynamic)
Step5: Save your configuration.
Step 6 (optional): Configure NAT.
Step 7 (optional): Configure DHCP.
