Part II: LAN Switching > Chapter 9. Ethernet Switch Configuration

Chapter 9. Ethernet Switch Configuration


This chapter covers the following subjects:

Configuration Features in Common with Routers: This section explains how to configure a variety of switch features that happen to be configured exactly like the same feature on Cisco routers.

LAN Switch Configuration and Operation: This section explains how to configure a variety of switch features that happen to be unique to switches, and are not used on routers, or are configured differently than the configuration on Cisco routers.


Chapter 3, “Fundamentals of LANs,” and Chapter 7, “Ethernet LAN Switching Concepts,” have already explained the most common Ethernet LAN concepts. Those chapters explained how Ethernet cabling and switches work, including the concepts of how switches forward Ethernet frames based on the frames’ destination MAC addresses.
