Taking Interfaces Out Of Shutdown

Routers ship from the factory with all interfaces deactivated. Deactivated interfaces are referred to as being in a shutdown state. Before an interface can be used, it must be taken out of the shutdown state. To take an interface out of shutdown, type “no shutdown” at the appropriate interface configuration level. The example above includes these commands for both the ethernet and serial interfaces.
