I am just tryin to find out what is the default setting for a cisco switch port when it is new out of the box, I though it was dynamic desirable.
I loaded up packet tracer and I had the following output from a 2960 switch
Switch#show interfaces fastEthernet 0/1 switchport
Administrative Mode: dynamic auto
Operational Mode: down
Administrative Trunking Encapsulation: dot1q
Operational Trunking Encapsulation: native
Negotiation of Trunking: On
Access Mode VLAN: 1 (default)
Trunking Native Mode VLAN: 1 (default)
Voice VLAN: none
Administrative private-vlan host-association: none
Administrative private-vlan mapping: none
Administrative private-vlan trunk native VLAN: none
Administrative private-vlan trunk encapsulation: dot1q
Administrative private-vlan trunk normal VLANs: none
Administrative private-vlan trunk private VLANs: none
Operational private-vlan: none
Trunking VLANs Enabled: ALL
Pruning VLANs Enabled: 2-1001
Capture Mode Disabled
Capture VLANs Allowed: ALL
Appliance trust: none
As you can see from the out port Administrative mode is set to DYNAMIC AUTO.
Is auto the default setting or is there no definate default setting for a switch port and does this mean it will vary on diffrent models of cisco switches.
Hope this made sense look forward to your replies.
