InterVLAN Routing

Hello Janhavi

A routed port is a layer 3 port, which means it is assigned an IP address. This kind of port behaves the same as a port on a router. That means that the distinction of “access” or “trunk” port has no meaning. Once a port is configured as a routed port using the no switchport command, all switchport commands are disabled on that port, so even if you try to configure the port as an access or trunk port, the switch will tell you that it is an unrecognized command.

The “routed port” section of the lesson, shows the configuration of the Fa0/16 port on SW2, as well as the configuration of the Fa0/16 port on SW3. The configurations as they appear in the lesson are correct.

I hope this has been helpful!
