    Here’s an example to enable telnet server on your router or switch:

    R1(config)#line vty 0 4
    R1(config-line)#transport input telnet
    R1(config-line)#password cisco123
    R1(config-line)#transport input

  2. Hello Syedwaqas.

    When troubleshooting fibre based interfaces, there are some specific items that you should check:

  3. Hi Laz,
    According to point 3 as I understand …
    If the SFP Module is Single Mode (Like GLC-LH-SM1 SFP-GE-L2) then we have to use Single Mode Fiber or vice versa , right ?? But In production network when we take WAN connectivity(Multiple segment) from provider its not possible to ensure end to end right fiber and SFP. Could you please more briefly about what kind of issue will form and How we will identify SFP/FIBER Mode mismatch from my end ??


  4. Hi Laz,
    Thanks for your explanation …
    So we have to KEEP same type for per active segment , right ??


    Suppose… Segment-1 : R1 to R2 [SFP Single Mode both end and Fiber also Single Mode ]
    And Segment-2 : R2 to R3 [Multimode SFP both end and Multimode Fiber ]

    The above is okk or not ?? Please correct me if I am wrong .Thx


  5. In the Half-Duplex Interface issue, why the Fast Ethernet interface not supporting half duplex? I believe the Fast Ethernets can support both Full and Half Duplex mode. Please clear my doubt.
