Cisco 3800 series routers

Prerequisites for Basic Software Configuration Using the Cisco IOS CLI

Follow the instructions in the quick start guide that shipped with your router to install the chassis, connect cables, and power up the router.


Timesaver Before powering up the router, disconnect all WAN cables from the router to keep it from trying to run the AutoInstall process. The router may try to run AutoInstall if you power it on while there is a WAN connection on both ends and the router does not have a valid configuration file stored in NVRAM (for instance, when you add a new interface). It can take several minutes for the router to determine that AutoInstall is not connected to a remote TCP/IP host.


Restrictions for Basic Software Configuration Using the Cisco IOS CLI

If Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) is installed on your router, we recommend that you use Cisco SDM instead of the Cisco IOS CLI to perform the initial software configuration. To access SDM, see the quick start guide that shipped with your router.

How to Perform a Basic Software Configuration Using the Cisco IOS CLI

This section contains the following procedures:

Configuring the Router Hostname (Optional)

Configuring the Enable and Enable Secret Passwords (Required)

Configuring the Console Idle Privileged EXEC Timeout (Optional)

Configuring Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces (Required)

Specifying a Default Route or Gateway of Last Resort (Required)

Configuring Virtual Terminal Lines for Remote Console Access (Required)

Configuring the Auxiliary Line (Optional)

Verifying Network Connectivity (Required)

Saving Your Router Configuration (Required)

Saving Backup Copies of Your Configuration and System Image (Optional)

Configuring the Router Hostname

The hostname is used in CLI prompts and default configuration filenames. If you do not configure the router hostname, the router uses the factory-assigned default hostname "Router."

Do not expect capitalization and lowercasing to be preserved in the hostname. Uppercase and lowercase characters are treated as identical by many Internet software applications. It may seem appropriate to capitalize a name as you would ordinarily do, but conventions dictate that computer names appear in all lowercase characters. For more information, see RFC 1178, Choosing a Name for Your Computer.

The name must also follow the rules for Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) hostnames. They must start with a letter, end with a letter or digit, and have as interior characters only letters, digits, and hyphens. Names must be 63 characters or fewer. For more information, see RFC 1035, Domain Names—Implementation and Specification.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. hostname name

4. Verify that the router prompt displays your new hostname.

5. end

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

Enter your password if prompted.

Step 2 

configure terminal

Example:

Router# configure terminal

Enters global configuration mode.

Step 3 

hostname name

Example:

Router(config)# hostname myrouter

Step 4 

Verify that the router prompt displays your new hostname.

Example:

myrouter(config)#

Step 5 

end

Example:

myrouter# end

(Optional) Returns to privileged EXEC mode.

What to Do Next

Proceed to the "Configuring the Enable and Enable Secret Passwords" section.

Configuring the Enable and Enable Secret Passwords

To provide an additional layer of security, particularly for passwords that cross the network or are stored on a TFTP server, you can use either the enable password command or enable secret command. Both commands accomplish the same thing—they allow you to establish an encrypted password that users must enter to access privileged EXEC (enable) mode.

We recommend that you use the enable secret command because it uses an improved encryption algorithm. Use the enable password command only if you boot an older image of the Cisco IOS software or if you boot older boot ROMs that do not recognize the enable secret command.

For more information, see the "Configuring Passwords and Privileges" chapter in the Cisco IOS Security Configuration Guide. Also see the Improving Security on Cisco Routers tech note.

Restrictions

If you configure the enable secret command, it takes precedence over the enable password command; the two commands cannot be in effect simultaneously.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. enable password password

4. enable secret password

5. end

6. enable

7. end

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

Enter your password if prompted.

Step 2 

configure terminal

Example:

Router# configure terminal

Enters global configuration mode.

Step 3 

enable password password

Example:

Router(config)# enable password pswd2

(Optional) Sets a local password to control access to various privilege levels.

We recommend that you perform this step only if you boot an older image of the Cisco IOS software or if you boot older boot ROMs that do not recognize the enable secret command.

Step 4 

enable secret password

Example:

Router(config)# enable secret greentree

Specifies an additional layer of security over the enable password command.

Do not use the same password that you entered in Step 3.

Step 5 

end

Example:

Router(config)# end

Returns to privileged EXEC mode.

Step 6 

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

Verify that your new enable or enable secret password works.

Step 7 

end

Example:

Router(config)# end

(Optional) Returns to privileged EXEC mode.

Troubleshooting Tips

If you forget the password that you configured, or if you cannot access privileged EXEC (enable) mode, see the Password Recovery Procedures for your router, available at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/474.

What to Do Next

If you want to set the console interface privileged EXEC timeout to a value other than 10 minutes (the default), proceed to the "Configuring the Console Idle Privileged EXEC Timeout" section.

If you do not wish to change the privileged EXEC timeout, proceed to the "Specifying a Default Route or Gateway of Last Resort" section.

Configuring the Console Idle Privileged EXEC Timeout

This section describes how to configure the console line's idle privileged EXEC timeout. By default, the privileged EXEC command interpreter waits 10 minutes to detect user input before timing out.

When you configure the console line, you can also set communication parameters, specify autobaud connections, and configure terminal operating parameters for the terminal that you are using. For more information on configuring the console line, see the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals and Network Management Configuration Guide. In particular, see the "Configuring Operating Characteristics for Terminals" and "Troubleshooting and Fault Management" chapters.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. line console 0

4. exec-timeout minutes [seconds]

5. end

6. show running-config

7. exit


Note The exec-timeout command or any changes to the exec-command value is triggered only after you exit from the EXEC mode and login again.


DETAILED STEPS

Configures the console line and starts the line configuration command collection mode.

Step 4 

exec-timeout minutes [seconds]

Example:

Router(config-line)# exec-timeout 0 0

Sets the idle privileged EXEC timeout, which is the interval that the privileged EXEC command interpreter waits until user input is detected.

The example shows how to specify no timeout.

Step 5 

end

Example:

Router(config-line)# end

Returns to privileged EXEC mode.

Step 6 

show running-config

Note For the exec-timeout command to take effect, you must exit from the EXEC mode and login again.

Examples

The following example shows how to set the console idle privileged EXEC timeout to 2 minutes 30 seconds:

line console
 exec-timeout 2 30

The following example shows how to set the console idle privileged EXEC timeout to 10 seconds:

line console
 exec-timeout 0 10 

What to Do Next

Proceed to the "Configuring Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces" section.

Configuring Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces

This sections shows how to assign an IP address and interface description to an Ethernet interface on your router.

For comprehensive configuration information on Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, see the "Configuring LAN Interfaces" chapter of the Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Component Configuration Guide.

For information on interface numbering, see the quick start guide that shipped with your router.


Note Cisco 1841 and Cisco 2801 routers have a hardware limitation on the Fast Ethernet ports FE0/0 and FE0/1. In half-duplex mode, when traffic reaches or exceeds 100% capacity (equal to or greater than 5 Mbps in each direction), the interface will experience excessive collisions and reset once per second. To avoid this problem, traffic must be limited to less than 100% of capacity.


SUMMARY STEPS

What to Do Next

Proceed to the "Specifying a Default Route or Gateway of Last Resort" section.

Specifying a Default Route or Gateway of Last Resort

This section describes how to specify a default route with IP routing enabled. For alternative methods of specifying a default route, see the Configuring a Gateway of Last Resort Using IP Commands tech note.

The Cisco IOS software uses the gateway (router) of last resort if it does not have a better route for a packet and if the destination is not a connected network. This section describes how to select a network as a default route (a candidate route for computing the gateway of last resort). The way in which routing protocols propagate the default route information varies for each protocol.

For comprehensive configuration information about IP routing and IP routing protocols, see the Cisco IOS IP Configuration Guide. In particular, see the "Configuring IP Addressing" chapter and all "Part 2: IP Routing Protocols" chapters.
