Standard client switchport configuration

The provision of standards based configurations on Cisco based hardware deployed across an infrastructure aide in maintaining a deterministic known environment. This post attempts to identify what standard configuration I would apply to provide simple connectivity on a LAN for a single client or potentially a printer.

# interface FastEthernet0/1
# description Client Data
# switchport access vlan 100
# switchport mode access
# switchport nonegotiate
# no ip address
# spanning-tree portfast
# spanning-tree bpduguard enable

Not forgetting the many other elements of the deployed switch configuration. The standard port configuration benefits from the errdisable recovery function.
