Description: The purpose of this exercise is to configure a loop back interface and test it for connectivity. The loopback interface is a logical interface internal to a router. It is not connected to any other device. A loopback interface is UP as long as the router is up and running. It is useful in managing a router as there will always be at least one interface available on the router, irrespective of other physical interfaces.
The command used for assigning loopback interface is:
Router(config)#interface loopback <number>
The number can be between 0 and 2147483647. A loopback interface is automatically put in "no shutdown" state when created. However, you need to assign an ip address to use a loopback interface.
