Some commands in this book use URLs (uniform resource locators) as part of the command syntax. URLs used in the Cisco IOS Integrated File System (IFS) contain two parts: a file system or network prefix, and a file identification suffix. The following tables list URL keywords that can be used in the
destination-url arguments for all commands in this book. The prefixes listed below can also be used in the filesystem arguments in this document.
The following table lists common URL network prefixes used to indicate a device on the network.
