Can anyone explain to how to configure a switch port to the host mode? What is the purpose set port to host mode?
It sounds like that host mode is a macro of sorts that when applied it actually automatically applies a series of commands like switchport mode access and spanning-tree portfast, to prepare the port to expect a host to be plugged into it.
That's kinda cool. I wonder how long this command has been around and what IOS it was first introduced. I've been doing things the long and hard way for a long time.
I use the switchport host macro very often. The "default interface fx/x" command is also useful to set interface back to default. I just explored custom macro's and they save alot of time.
