1.3.2 Packet Tracer – Review of Concepts from Exploration 1 Answers
- Design a logical LAN topology
- Configure the physical topology
- Configure the logical topology
- Verify network connectivity
- Verify passwords
In this activity, you will design and configure a small routed network and verify connectivity across multiple network devices. This requires creating and assigning two subnetwork blocks, connecting hosts and network devices, and configuring host computers and one Cisco router for basic network connectivity. Switch1 has a default configuration and does not require additional configuration. You will use common commands to test and document the network. The zero subnet is used.
Task 1: Design a Logical LAN Topology
Step 1. Design an IP addressing scheme.
Given the IP address block of 192.168.30.0 /27, design an IP addressing scheme that satisfies the following requirements:
|Subnet||Number of Hosts|
The 0 subnet is used. No subnet calculators may be used. Create the smallest possible subnets that satisfy the requirements for hosts. Assign the first usable subnet to Subnet A.
Host computers will use the first IP address in the subnet. The network router will use the last IP address in the subnet.
Step 2. Write down the IP address information for each device.
Before proceeding, verify your IP addresses with the instructor.
Task 2: Configure the Physical Topology
Step 1. Cable the network.
Step 2. Inspect the network connections.
Task 3: Configure the Logical Topology
Step 1. Configure the host computers.
Step 2. Configure Router1.
Enter the following commands on the router:
- Router name Router1
- Secret password class
- Set Console and VTY line passwords to cisco
- Interface addresses
- Interface descriptions
- Fa0/0 text: connection to host1
- Fa0/1 text: connection to switch1
Task 4: Verify Network Connectivity
Use the ping command to verify network connectivity.
