  • Save time using the Cisco CLI
  • Be more productive when configuring Cisco devices


  • Basic Networking Knowledge


Learn Cisco CLI time-saving commands like “/”, “+”, “more”, “linen”, regular expressions, and many more. Save yourself hours when working with the Cisco CLI. Learn tips and tricks from CCIEs and others with many years of networking experience.

Why spend time struggling to find command output when the Cisco CLI makes it easy to search for text?

There are many commands covered in this course and I will add more based on the feedback I receive.

So many commands are available in the Cisco IOS. For example:

“^” beginning of the line

“$” end of line

“.” single character

“\” escape the special meaning

“|” or so you select multiple options

“linenum” and line numbers

“_” which is a space

“sh run all” to show all the configuration

“default interface” to reset interface configuration

“reload in” to reload the router at a specific time
