Hey guys, im just trying to learn some cisco stuff to study for my CCENT.
I bought a few switches (3550s) im looking at flashing an EMI Image to. I have been messing around for a few hours now and cannot get it working (TFTP).
I have my laptop connected via console, and also via ethernet cable to port 1 on the switch.
Ive read some guides but not 100% sure what im doing. it seems the switches have some kind of config on them already as my laptop keeps being automatically set to an ip of 169.254.126.107/16
I have already erased the config, deleted the vlan.dat etc and reconfigured the switch manual (not via the "wizard")
Im not 100% sure what im doing and i cannot find solid info anywhere on it.
If someone could give me a little walkthrough on how to make sure i can tftp over my .bin upgrade.
I configured Vlan 1 with an ip and a gateway. But im not sure how to get it connected to my laptop as it just keeps detecting that ip address. and nothing like ive assigned.
