Cisco IOS CLI – tips and shortcuts

I’m currently working my way through freeCodeCamp and one of the projects is to build a technical documentation page. I based mine on Cisco’s IOS CLI. It features helpful tips on understanding and using the IOS command line interface.

While gathering information for the project I stumbled upon an image that was a visual representation of the IOS command hierarchy. The simple high-level schematic diagram provides an excellent overview of that hierarchy. I’ve reproduced a higher quality version of it here.

I also made a table that provides examples of what the command prompt looks like depending on your position in the command hierarchy. And last but not least I’ve produced a table of keyboard shortcuts that includes animated gif examples of each for further clarification.

All of this has been combined in a single page and is accessible here.
