The following is the show running-config output from the example used in theÂ Router Configuration section.
Current configuration: ! version 11.2 ! hostname cisco ! enable password cisco ! interface Ethernet0 ip address 10.1.1.1 255.0.0.0 ! interface Serial0 ip address 22.214.171.124 255.0.0.0 ! router rip network 10.0.0.0 network 126.96.36.199 ! ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 188.8.131.52 ! line vty 0 4 password telnet login ! end
When displaying a configuration, the exclamation marks (!) function as line separators to make reading easier. Referring to the above example, notice how commands entered at the interface configuration level appear indented underneath the respective interface (e.g. interface Ethernet0). Likewise, commands entered underneath the routing engine configuration level appear indented underneath the routing engine (e.g. router rip). Global level commands are not indented. This type of display allows a user to easily identify which configuration parameters are set at the global configuration level and which are set at the various configuration sub-levels.
