Cisco IOS shortcuts

September 15, 2009

Configuring Cisco IOS shortcuts command are quite easy and neat… just use the exec command “alias”.

command structure: alias

Example in exec mode: sh ip int br (show ip interface brief)

so following, we would get “alias exec s sh ip int br”

Example in configure mode: router ospf

and we would get “alias configure ro router ospf”

More mixed examples [ alias / original command / command to enter ]

shr / show run | inc ip  / alias exec shr sh run | inc ip

et0 / interface fa0/0 / alias configure et0 interface fa0/0

reload /  sh run / alias exec reload sh run <— rewrite IOS command

I hope that was informative!
