Catalyst 3500 switching method

    I'm new to the world of Cisco networking...

    I have reached a section in the CCNA study guide explaining the three
    switching types:

    - Store and forward
    - Cut-through
    - FragmentFree

    We use the Catalyst 3500 and the odd 3750. All three switching methods
    seem to have their own benefits. What is the default method used on new
    Cisco switches? Is this something than can be configured from within
    IOS?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Store and forward.

    Not on newer switches, they are always Store and forward.
