This culminating activity includes many of the skills that you have acquired during this course. First, you will complete the documentation for the network. Make sure you have a printed version of the instructions. During implementation, you will configure VLANs, trunking, port security and SSH remote access on a switch. You will then implement inter-VLAN routing and NAT on a router. Finally, you will use your documentation to verify your implementation by testing end-to-end connectivity.


You are required to fully document the network. You will need a print out of this instruction set, which will include an unlabeled topology diagram:

  • Label all the device names, network addresses and other important information that Packet Tracer generated.
  • Complete the Addressing Table and VLANs and Port Assignments Table.
  • Fill in any blanks in the Implementation and Verification The information is supplied when you launch the Packet Tracer activity.


Note: All devices in the topology except [[R1Name]], [[S1Name]], and [[PC1Name]] are fully configured. You do not have access to the other routers. You can access all the servers and PCs for testing purposes.

Implement to following requirements using your documentation:


  • Configure remote management access including IP addressing and SSH:
    • Domain is cisco.com
    • User [[UserText]] with password [[UserPass]]
    • Crypto key length of 1024
    • SSH version 2, limited to 2 authentication attempts and a 60 second timeout
    • Clear text passwords should be encrypted.
  • Configure, name and assign VLANs. Ports should be manually configured as access ports.
  • Configure trunking.
  • Implement port security:
    • On Fa0/1, allow 2 MAC addresses that are automatically added to the configuration file when detected. The port should not be disabled, but a syslog message should be captured if a violation occurs.
    • Disable all other unused ports.


  • Configure inter-VLAN routing.
  • Configure DHCP services for VLAN 30. Use LAN as the case-sensitive name for the pool.
  • Implement routing:
    • Use RIPv2 as the routing protocol.
    • Configure one network statement for the entire [[DisplayNet]] address space.
    • Disable interfaces that should not send RIPv2 messages.
    • Configure a default route to the Internet.
  • Implement NAT:
    • Configure a standard, one statement ACL number 1. All IP addresses belonging to the [[DisplayNet]] address space are allowed.
    • Refer to your documentation and configure static NAT for the File Server.
    • Configure dynamic NAT with PAT using a pool name of your choice, a /30 mask, and these two public addresses:
      • [[NATPoolText]]
      • [[PC1Name]]

Verify [[PC1Name]] has received full addressing information from [[R1Name]].


All devices should now be able to ping all other devices. If not, troubleshoot your configurations to isolate and solve problems. A few tests include:

  • Verify remote access to [[S1Name]] by using SSH from a PC.
  • Verify VLANs are assigned to appropriate ports and port security is in force.
  • Verify OSPF neighbors and a complete routing table.
  • Verify NAT translations and statics.
    • Outside Host should be able to access File Server at the public address.
    • Inside PCs should be able to access Web Server.
  • Document any problems you encountered and the solutions in the Troubleshooting Documentation table below.
