Best practices configs

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! When you configure as many switches and routers as me, it helps to keep some sample configs around.

If you are a network consultant you will probably get to see your fair share of networks. In your travels you might see new and nifty ways of configuring things. Everytime you find a snippet of config commands that might prove useful, it’s a great idea to store that in a text file for later use. Why would you do this?

Well you can build a library of best practice configs to use at a later date. This way when configuring a new router or switch from scratch it won’t take you as long. You can just cut and paste and replace the unique information as needed. This goes a long way to making you more efficient!
