Where to Go Next

If you prefer to configure the router manually or you wish to configure a module or interface that is not included in the setup command facility, proceed to ""Configuring with the Command-Line Interface," for step-by-step instructions.

Before Starting Your Cisco VG224

Before you power on your Cisco VG224 and begin to use the setup command facility, make sure to follow these steps:

Step 1 Set up the hardware as described in the installation documents for your Cisco VG224.

Step 2 Configure your PC terminal emulation program for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit.

Step 3 Determine which network protocols you are supporting.

Step 4 Determine the addressing plan for each network protocol.

Using the setup Command

The setup command facility is displayed in your PC terminal emulation program window.

To create a basic configuration for your Cisco VG224, do the following:

Complete the steps in "Configuring Global Parameters" section.

Complete the steps in "Configuring Controller and Interface Parameters" section.

Complete the steps in "Completing the Configuration" section.

Note If you make a mistake while using the setup command facility, you can exit and run the facility again. Press Ctrl-C, and type setup at the enable mode prompt (Router#).

Configuring Global Parameters

Step 1 Power on the Cisco VG224. The power switch is on the rear panel of the Cisco VG224, at the lower-right corner, near the power cord.

Messages begin to appear in your terminal emulation program window.

Caution Do not press any keys on the keyboard until the messages stop. Any keys pressed during this time are interpreted as the first command typed when the messages stop, which might cause the Cisco VG224 to power off and start over. It takes a few minutes for the messages to stop.

The messages look similar to the following:

Note Much of the following example is largely for a Cisco VG224. The messages vary, depending on the Cisco IOS software release, interface modules in place in your Cisco VG224, and feature set you select. In addition, the word "Router" is the default prompt, and may appear elsewhere; interpret this word as meaning "Cisco VG224." The screen displays in this section are for reference only and might not exactly reflect the messages on your console.

Configuring global parameters:

  Enter host name [Router]: VG224

The enable secret is a password used to protect access to privileged EXEC and 
configuration modes. This password, after entered, becomes encrypted in the configuration.

Step 5 Enter an enable secret password. This password is encrypted (more secure) and cannot be seen when viewing the configuration.

   Enter enable secret: xxxx

The enable password is used when you do not specify an enable secret password, with some 
older software versions, and some boot images.

Step 6 Enter an enable password that is different from the enable secret password. This password is not encrypted (less secure) and can be seen when viewing the configuration.

   Enter enable password: guessme

The virtual terminal password is used to protect access to the router over a network 

Step 7 Enter the virtual terminal password, which prevents unauthenticated access to the router through ports other than the console port:

             [3] novell-ether (Novell Ethernet_802.3)
    Enter the encapsulation type [2]:

Completing the Configuration

When you have provided all the information prompted for by the setup command facility, the configuration appears.

Note For sample configurations, see "Cisco VG224 Configuration Example."

To complete your configuration, do the following:

Step 1 A setup command facility prompt asks if you want to save this configuration, with the following options:

[0] Go to the IOS command prompt without saving this config.
[1] Return back to the setup without saving this config.
[2] Save this configuration to nvram and exit.

If you answer 0, the configuration information you entered is not saved, and you return to the Cisco VG224 enable prompt (Router#). Type setup to return to the System Configuration Dialog.

If you answer 1, you return to setup without saving the configuration.

If you answer 2, the configuration is saved and you are returned to the user EXEC prompt (Router>).

Step 2 When the messages stop appearing on your screen, press Return to get the Router> prompt.

Step 3 The Router> prompt indicates that you are now at the command-line interface (CLI) and you have just completed a basic Cisco VG224 configuration. However, this is not a complete configuration. At this point you have two choices:

Run the setup command facility again and create another configuration. Enter the following:

Router> enable
Password: password
Router# setup

Modify the existing configuration or configure additional features with the CLI as described in "Configuring with the Command-Line Interface."

Where to Go Next

At this point you can proceed to the following:

""Configuring with the Command-Line Interface," to learn how to use the CLI to configure additional features.
