Hi,
When configing routers I am prone to alot of spelling errors-which
results sometimes in the router trying to connect to the internet(which
is not there) to find out what the ocmmand meant-my tutor did tell me a
command to put in to stop this from happening-
however he has since left adn I cant seem to find out what to type.
TIA


Re: Avoiding router searching for typos?

Actually, your router interprets the mistyped command as a host name
and tries to resolve the name to an ip address. The command to stop
this is:
router(config)# no ip domain-lookup
