When is an IP address required to be configured on a Cisco LAN switch?
- when the switch is connected to another switch
- when the switch must forward LAN traffic
- when the switch needs to be managed through an in-band connection
- when the switch is configured from a computer connected to the console port
Answers Explanation & Hints:
A LAN switch uses Layer 2 addresses to determine how to forward packets. An IP address is only necessary if the switch needs to be remotely managed through an in-band connection on the network.
