In this paper, you are required to set up a simple network consisting PCs and routers, or simulation software to set up the same network. You are free to choose software or device and you are expected to research the appropriate commands and list your sources of information.
This assessment is a practical assessment and will enhance and test your practical skills related to the subject topic. You are required to set up a simple network using minimum three PCs and minimum two routers, or use simulation software to set up the same network. To complete this assessment you are expected to refer to information beyond the text book. This assignment is open; in that you are free to choose the devices or software you use to complete the specified tasks. Students are expected to research the necessary commands by themselves.
There are numerous web sites available that discuss Linux networking. You are expected to list your sources of information for the different tasks. When completing this `project`, you may encounter errors or experience difficulties getting your setup to work. If this occurs, your challenge is to analyse why they happen and report on how you solved the problems you encountered.
Additional information will be provided for technology options to use in creating this lab closer to the assessment due date.
Part 1 - Setting up a Network
You are required to set up a network consisting of PCs, routers and servers. You need to configure routing between routers (minimum two routers required). The routers will have multiple network interfaces. The PC (client) will be connected to one of the router`s interfaces and other PCs (servers) will be connected to the second router`s interface. Client Router Router Server(s) Each side of the router will be in its own LAN (or WAN) segment and should have a different network address, use private IP address ranges for each LAN Segment.
Perform the following activities and support your workings with screenshots [10 marks]: 1. Configure the PC, Server and Router interfaces with appropriate network addressing; 2. Configure routing (IP packet forwarding) on the routers; 3. On the client ping the client`s own network interface, then the local router gateway interface, then the remote router interface, then the server; 4. Use the traceroute command from the client to the server. Include results of the traceroute in your submission.
Part II - Configuring Network Services Perform the following activities [15 marks]:
Before starting this task, you MUST show and discuss your proposed network topology with your lecturer.
A series of screen shots with commentary on each of the required tasks is to be submitted. The submission has to include an explanation of the tasks and all the commands used along with the output (or final result) in report format.
This assessment item is designed to assess the understanding and use of some advanced topics in TCP/IP and how it is used to establish a internet environment. This assessment is designed to enhance analytical skills, planning and design capabilities of students under some predefined requirements. In particular, the assessment covers the following learning objectives:
Marks will be awarded for
PART 1 1. Must provide picture of topology, clearly labeling all router interfaces, and Network ID used for link/LAN segments, also need labeling of interface IP addresses. 2. Screen shots of PC/Server IP address setting, Router`s running configurations, Router`s routing tables. 3. Screen shots of successful ping and traceroute outputs. PART 2 1. Screen shots of DHCP, DNS and WEB server setting. 2. Screen shot of web page on PC 3. Running configuration of router which should clearly show usage of "ip helper-address" command and use of ACL as firewall. 4. Screen shots of successful implementation and operation of Firewall (ACL) All steps should be clearly explained; which should include, what you have done and the purpose of command/settings used in project, make sure you use only PRIVATE addresses. These are minimum requirements for this assignment.
