You have just acquired a new router and or switch and you need to configure it to use in you network. To do this you will need to gain access to the device console. This can be done by two methods; they are referred to as in-band and out-of-band management. In-band management uses telnet to connect to the Ethernet port of the device, but as we have not configured an Ethernet address on the device yet this method is not available to us. So we will need to use out-of-band management.
Out-of-band management requires that we connect to the console port of the router or switch with a rollover cable to the serial port of our PC, and use a terminal emulator application such as Hyper-Terminal or Putty.
In this Cisco Packet Tracer lab we will use the terminal emulator of the PC to configure basic setting such as hostname, passwords, and interface addressing on a router and switch.
