EtherChannel is a combination of two or more physical ports into one logical or virtual port in the switches for redundancy or bandwidth requirements. 

The example of how to configure the EtherChannel in Cisco Switches is shown in the below with the picture together. I hope this example will be benefit for brothers and sisters who are learning Cisco Networking.

 


Switch1
Step 1 : Give Name to Switch 1
en
config t
hostname IT

 

Step 2 : Create VLan and give name to it
vlan 20
name IT
exit
 

Step 3 : Create Etherchannel
interface range f0/1 - 4
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 20
channel-group 5 mode auto
end
 

Step 4 : Activate the connection to the PC
config t
interface f0/5
no shut
end


Step 5 : Save Configuration
copy run start
 


Switch 2
Step 1 : Give Name to Switch 2

Step 2 : Create VLan and give name to it
