  100% Pass and No Plagiarism Guaranteed

SET UP A SIMPLE NETWORK USING MINIMUM THREE PCS AND MINIMUM TWO ROUTERS

Task

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]:

1. DHCP: Configure DHCP on the server and show that the client PC has successfully received an IP Address and other network parameters (default router, netmask, DNS) using DHCP;
2. WEB Server: Configure a WEB server on dedicated machine, with URL as www.YOUR 
3. DNS: Configure a DNS Server on the server device and demonstrate that forward and reverse DNS are working from the client PC; test DNS Server by browsing from client PC, DNS must resolve this URL to IP address of WEB Server
4. Firewall: Configure traffic filtering on the router to block network traffic between client PC and WEB Servers, and then unblock traffic between them.

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.

Rationale

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:

  • be able to analyse IP addressing requirements and design an addressing scheme;
  • be able to analyse the requirements of IP routing and choose appropriate routing methods;
  • be able to demonstrate how internetworking devices obtain their network configuration;
  • be able to explain how data flows through the internet; and
  • be able to ascertain and evaluate selection of applications and protocols for transferring data across the internet;
Marking criteria

Marks will be awarded for

  • Correctness of the commands used
  • Correctness of the output (screen shots)
  • Clarity of explanation relative to the screen shots
  • Correct in-text referencing and reference list according to CSU standard

Insta Research is a very helpful place to buy a resume in the first place. I gave them my details and did not expect that they would come up with such an exclusive design. My personality is professionally enhanced through the resume made by them. I am thankful for the depth of my heart as I would have never approached that level of excellence in my resume. Wish you good luck ahead and again thank you!

CIPD assignment is not my cup of tea. That’s the reason I sought out this place suggested by my friend. I would say that the writers of this site are really admiring. I was assigned the best CIPD writer that solved all my issues. He explained to me the difficult topics so well that now I am able to talk on those topics eloquently. I owe my writer a huge thanks and praise! And yes, I would recommend other students as well to come to instaresearch.co.uk for the top CIPD assignment help.
