In this series here at the StormWind.com Expert Blog, we are going to examine Cisco device commands that many believe we should have learned at the CCNA level.
First up - the do command. This command allows us to execute show commands from any configuration mode outside of user and exec modes.
R1(config-if)# do show ip interface brief
This might not work in an exam simulation environment, but when in the "real world", this command can be an amazing time saver.

Which of the following IP addresses fall into the CIDR block of 184.108.40.206/22? (Choose three.)
We know that this subnet mask of 22 falls into the third octet. Converting the third octet of the IP address and the third octet of the subnet mask, we have to the following:
Following Session 3 Part 1
IMPLEMENTING A SMALL NETWORK: Switches and Connectivity
CONFIGURING EXPANDED SWITCHED NETWORKS: VLANs and VTP
CONFIGURING EXPANDED SWITCHED NETWORKS: RSTP and Troubleshooting
Following Session 5 Part 1
IMPLEMENTING A SMALL NETWORK: Routers
IMPLEMENTING AND TROUBLESHOOTING OSPF
IMPLEMENTING AND TROUBLESHOOTING EIGRP
Following Session 7 Part 1
IMPLEMENTING AND TROUBLESHOOTING ACLs
"A question I have from the ICND1. Can you have collision domains beyond the switch? What if we had 2 routers connected, with switches hanging off them, and PC's connected to the switches. I'd never thought beyond the switch, and I can't justify my answer. The more I think about it, the worse it gets. You're only concerned about collision domains up to the switch, right?"
Thanks so much for the awesome question!
