CDP & LLDP Questions

Question 1


CDP is enabled by default on all Cisco routers. If it is turned off by any reason, we can turn it on again with the following command on global configuration mode:

Router(config)#cdp run

Note: CDP can be turned on or turned off on each interface. For example to turn off CDP on an interface we use this command:

Router(config-if)#no cdp enable

Question 2


Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is a industry standard protocol that allows devices to advertise, and discover connected devices, and there capabilities (same as CDP of Cisco). To enable it on Cisco devices, we have to use this command under global configuration mode:

Sw(config)# lldp run

Question 3


The Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) is a proprietary Data Link Layer protocol (Layer 2 protocol) developed by Cisco. It is used to share information about other directly connected Cisco equipment, such as the operating system version and IP address. The most popular command with CDP is “show cdp neighbors” to discover who is the neighbors.


There are 3 columns we should pay more attention to:

+ Local Interface (Local Intrfce): the interfaces on the device you are using “show cdp neighbors” command. In this case it is the interface of HOME router
+ Platform: the platform of neighbor device

+ Port ID: the neighbor device’s port or interface on which the CDP packets are multicast
