Loopback Interface in GNS3 | How to create a Loopback Interface

Introduction

 

Loopback interfaces can be created in GNS3. In this tutorial, we will learn what is a loopback interface how we can create it.

 

Loopback Interface is a virtual interface which can be created on the routers. Since it is virtual, it is not dependent on any physical interface and hence is always up.

 

 

How to create:

 

Lets create 3 loopbacks on the same router- Loopback 1, Loopback 2 and Loopback 3 with IP Address– 10.1.1.1, 10.1.2.1 and 10.1.3.1 respectively.

 

 

Router(config)#int loopback 1

 

Router(config-if)#ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0

 

Router(config)# int loopback 2

 

Router(config)# ip address 10.1.2.1 255.255.255.0

 

Router(config)# int loopback 3

 

Router(config)# ip address 10.1.3.1 255.255.255.0

 

 

Please note that each loopback interface must belong to different Network/ Subnet.

 

 

We need not to give “No Shutdown” command after giving IP Address to the Loopback interfaces; like we do when we give IP Address to a real interface.

 

 

This is because Loopback interfaces are virtual interfaces and they are always up.

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much approximately this, such
    as you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I think that you just could do with a few percent to drive the
    message home a little bit, however instead of that, that is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

    Right now it seems like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one
    and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?
    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
