Bits Per Second – 9600
Data Bits – 8
Parity – None
Stop Bits – 1

Step 3: Type the following command to pull DHCP from an Interface other than the switch (such as a Router or Server):
Console# set interface default ip dhcp-server disable. Press Enter.
success: change accepted.
Console# set interface default ip dhcp-client enable. Press Enter.
success: change accepted.

Step 4: Type the following command to set the System IP on your switch:
Console# set system ip-address
success: change accepted.

Step 5: Type the following command to set the Default Gateway on your switch:
Console# set ip route default 1
success: change accepted.

Step 6: Type the following command to set the IP for Interface 1:
Console# set interface 1 ip
success: change accepted.

Step 7: Type the command: show config to verify your results:
