    Have u tried typing in those commands?
    By the looks of it it crashes on boot and these commands are supposed to finish booting. From then it's as usual.

    Mate - you need a crash course in politeness. This forum is here to assist people in the IT certification process. We're not here to do your job for you. I suggest that if, as appears, you have got yourself a job that you aren't qualified or experienced enough to do, you quickly look into obtaining yourself some training. Simply posting requests for the people here to earn your living for you is NOT the best way to go about making friends in a new community. :dry

    I am software engineering but I did not get any network courses in my major and my new job need network experience. so I am under pressure (neither experience in network nor network training course). I am spending a lot of time searching to do tasks. When I did not get the solution I asked you as forum members to help. the my way to learn and do tasks fast.

    Could you please provide me with tutorial or on line courses that help me as beginner in network?

    So, basically, you lied to get your job? I can't see how any employer would give you a job like yours if you were truthful with them about your skills. If you didn't lie - and told them that your background was in software development, not networking - then you need to explain to your employer that you need training quickly. They can't possibly have thought you would be able to do the job that you've been employed to do without giving you some sort of training - dealing with Cisco switches is NOT something a first-level tech would ever be expected to do.

    Ask them about paying for you to take a classroom course for the Network+ - or even look at paying for a Network+ study guide yourself. At the very least that will give you the foundation in networking you need. In the meantime, whilst you're studying for that, i suggest you tell your employer they need to get some outside assistance. Implementing port security on switches, whilst a relatively straightforward process, is NOT something that should be done by someone who doesn't even know how to diagnose a basic fault on a Cisco switch!

    What's your native language? Perhaps there's someone on the forum who can help to translate.

    Hi mate, it is worth noting that what you are trying to do (configure Cisco kit) is not a task that a beginner in networking should undertake. Basically you should have some network experience before moving into Cisco support IMO.

    Perhaps speak to your employer about using a contractor to configure the Cisco kit for you? As already suggested starting with the Network+ could be good for you if you want to pursue a career in netwok support.

    Hope this helps! 8)

    OK, there is a language barrier here (I checked...not in a natively English speaking country). The link provided by Donmac seems to be the most straight forward response to your questions, alivip. That said, Donmac probably found the link by doing a Google search, so that also should be your first option when you need a fast answer. Discussion forums aren't IM or twitter, so you're not necessarily going to get an answer here right when you need one.

    In lieu of training, you might want to pick up some books and start studying about Cisco switches. I'd recommend the CCNA materials, since they cover elementary switch and router configuration. I grabbed a few links for you:



    You'll have to figure out what your best options are for buying the materials where you live.

    While we may be able to help you out in a pinch, this forum is no substitute for an education in Cisco internetworking. If you are a programmer, then you have the ability to learn enough networking to get by. Hope some of this helps.
