Configuring the Service Port Using the Command-Line Interface

To configure the service port, or network management port, on a 200 Series switch using the command-line interface, follow these steps:
  1. Log on to the switch.
  2. Enter enable to access Privileged EXEC mode.
  3. Enter the command serviceport protocol none.
    The system prompts you for confirmation:
    Changing protocol mode will reset ip configuration.
    Are you sure you want to continue? (y/n)
  4. Enter y in response to the prompt.
  5. Define the service port by entering the command serviceport ip ipaddr netmask gateway.
    • ipaddr is the IP address of the interface.
    • netmask is the subnet mask for the interface.
    • gateway is the default gateway for the interface.
The service port is ready for use.
