  • 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
