CCNA R&S: Cisco Commands List. Portable command guide for dummies

This posts consists of a list of important CCNA commands that you may need to use both in CCNA exams and in real world. When you start preparing for CCNA exam, you start developing concepts on various networking topics, but in the real world when you will work as a network engineer or in any other relevant position, you will need to know when and how to apply your CCNA knowledge. This posts aims to equip you with all the necessary commands with in-depth illustrations to make your familiarize with network configuration environment so that you know exactly which command to use in a particular situation.

This posts has included all the CCNA commands that an exam. candidate may need to solve CCNA simulation lab, and to solve switching and routing problems in real networks.

Router Modes:
  • Router>: User mode = Limited to basic monitoring commands
  • Router#: Privileged mode (exec-level mode) = Provides access to all other router commands
  • Router(config)#: global configuration mode = Commands that affect the entire system
  • Router(config-if)#: interface mode = Commands that affect interfaces
  • Router(config-subif)#: subinterface mode = Commands that affect subinterfaces

Access Control Lists (ACLs)
Standard ACL
  • Plane the location (router and interface) and direction (in or out) on that interface:
  • – Standard ACL should be placed as close as possible to the destination of the packet.
    – Identify the source IP addresses of packets as they go in the direction that the ACL is examining.

  • Use a remark to describe the ACL: (Optional):
  • Rl(config)#access-list 1 remark ACL TO DENY ACCESS FROM SALES VLAN

  • Create the ACL, keeping the following in mind:
  • – ACL uses first-match logic.
    – There is an implicit deny any at the end of the ACL.
    Rl(config)#access-list 2 deny
    Rl(config)#access-list 2 deny
    Rl(config)#access-list 2 permit
    Rl(config)#access-list 2 deny
    Rl(config)#access-list 2 permit any

  • Enable the ACL on the chosen router interface in the correct direction (in or out):
  • Rl(config-if)#ip access-group 2 out

Standard ACL number ranges: 1-99 and 1300 – 1999.
  • Using standard ACL to limit telnet and SSH access to a router:
  • Create the ACL that defines the permitted telnet clients:
    Rl(config)#access-list 99 remark ALLOWED TELNET CLIENTS
    Rl(config)#access-list 99 permit
    – apply the ACL inbound the vty lines
    Rl(config)#line vty 0 4
    Rl(config-line)#access-class 99 in

Extended ACL
  • Note:
  • – Extended ACL should be placed as close as possible to the source of the packet.
    – Extended ACL matches packets based on source & des. IP addresses, protocol, source & des. Port numbers and other criteria as well.
    Rl(config)#access-list 101 remark MY_ACCESS_LIST
    Rl(config)#access-list 101 deny ip host host
    Rl(config)#access-list 101 deny tcp any eq 23
    Rl(config)#access-list 101 deny icmp any
    Rl(config)#access-list 101 deny tcp host host eq 80
    Rl(config)#access-list 101 deny udp host eq 53 any
    Rl(config)#access-list 101 permit ip any any
    Rl(config)#interface fastEthernet 0/0
    Rl(config-if)#ip access-group 101 in

Extended ACL number ranges: 100 – 199 and 2000 – 2699.
Named ACL
  • Note:
  • – Named ACLs use names to identify ACLs rather than numbers, and commands that permit or deny traffic are written in a sub mode called named ACL mode (nacl).
    – Named ACL enables the editing of the ACL (deleting or inserting statements) by sequencing statements of the ACL.

  • Named standard ACL:
  • Rl(config)#ip access-list standard MY_STANDARD_ACL
    Rl(config-std-nacl)#permit any
    Rl(config)#interface fastEthernet 0/1
    Rl(config-if)#ip access-group MY_STANDARD_ACL out

  • Named extended ACL:
  • Rl(config)#ip access-list extended MY_EXTENDED_ACL
    Rl(config-ext-nacl)#deny icmp any
    Rl(config-ext-nacl)#deny tcp host host eq 80
    Rl(config-ext-nacl)# permit ip any any
    Rl(config)#interface fastEthernet 0/1
    Rl(config-if)#ip access-group MY_EXTENDED_ACL in

  • Editing ACL using sequence numbers:
  • Rl(config)#ip access-list extended MY_EXTENDED_ACL
    Rl(config-ext-nacl)#no 20 (deletes the statement of sequence number 20)
    Rl(config)#ip access-list standard 99
    Rl(config-std-nacl)#5 deny (inserts a statement with sequence 5)

You can edit numbered ACLs using the configuration style of the named ACLs in as shown in the last example.
Verifying ACLs
Rl#show access-lists Shows all ACLs configured on a router with counters at the end of each statement
Rl#show ip access-list Same as the previous command
Rl#show ip access-list 101 Shows only the specified ACL
Rl#show ip interface f0/0 Includes a reference to the on that interface either in ACLs enabled or out.

  • Define one or more DNS server (OPTIONAL):
  • R1(dhcp-config)»dns-server

With this…
Giving the switch an IP address
SW1(config)#interface vlan 1
SW1(config-if)#ip address 1 (or dhcp)
