Hi all,

Does anyone know how does pasting IOS config files as text to hyperterminal work? Does IOS executes command by command as they arrive? If it is true, consider the following commands:

interface f0/0
ip add 10.0.0.1 255.255.255.0
...

interface f1/0
ip add ...
...

That means that IOS executes second interface command in interface configuration mode of previous interface command, which cannot be accepted. What is actually true?

Thanx
Cheers

it will work just fine

if you are in "interface confiuration mode" and type a command that does not belong to that mode, it will run the command in normal config mode. So the same could be said for

[code:1]interface fa0/1
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 15
no ip domain-lookup[/code:1]

even though the "no ip domain-lookup" command isnt part of the interface config, it will still accept it and run the no ip domain-lookup in global config mode

hope that makes sense

yes you dont have to worry about it. IOS parses commands line by line, but nowadays it comes out the interface or rotuer config mode if the command is not meant for that mode.
