Routing protocols – configure connection between routers

In this post I will put in practice everything that we have learned so far. I will start by making the basic router configuration and then I will continue with the following commands:

Logging Synchronous – If you enable this command all router status messages to be displayed on a new line

Service Password-Encryption – when you configure this command, all passwords configured on the device are encrypted.

No ip domain lookup – disable the local DNS lookup

line vty 0 4 – configure the virtual lines (used when you telnet or ssh on the router)
login local
Logging Synchronous

After the basic configuration is done, I will show you how to configure a fast Ethernet interface and a serial one:

interface fastethernet0/1 – selects the first fastethernet interface, to see all interfaces type show ip                                               
                                             interface brief
ip address ip mask – this command assigns an ip address and a subnet mask to the Ethernet interface
no shutdown – this command enables an interface (brings it up)
interface serial0/1 – selects the serial interface to be configured
ip address ip mask
clock rate numbersets the serial line clock rate ( I usually use 56000)
no shutdown
