- Question 1: (2 marks)
Screen shot the local area connection properties of your computer. What is your local machine’s default gateway IP address? What is the purpose of having a default gateway?
Question 2: (2 marks)
In your local machine CLI window, ping your default gateway and ping www.cisco.com. Once successful, type the command “arp – a” Take a screen shot of the output and explain two lines as examples
Question 3: (2 marks)
Issue “netstat -r” command in the CLI window, screen shot the IPv4 and IPv6 tables and explain the table content row-by-row.
Question 4: (2 marks)
David bought a new Cisco router 1900. What are the main components of a Cisco router? He wants to keep back up of IOS of the router. Please advise him the two methods with correct procedures.
Question 5: (2 marks)
Refer to the exhibit below. The network administrator for a small advertising company has chosen to use 192.168.5.96/27 network for internal LAN addressing. As shown in the exhibit, a static IP address is assigned to the company printer.
However, no other devices can visit it. Please give your suggestion of general trouble shooting procedure and identify that is the main reason if current situation.
Question 6: (2 marks)
Peter has bought a Cisco switch 1960. He found that the old configuration file still in the switch and he can’t access the switch. Please advise him with the correct password recovery procedure and commands to clean up the old configuration.
Question 7: (10 marks)
A small business, Smart Office Services Pty Ltd, has its central office (HQ) and two branch offices (Branch 1 and Branch 2) linked via serial leased lines using routers. The network topology is given as follows. It is required that:
1) You will be assigned a single IP to configure this network.
2) You must e-mail your lecturer to request an IP address. Once you have received your allocated IP address you need to reply with a confirmation e-mail. Study the network topology, examine the network requirements, set up the network in Packet Tracer and complete all five sub-questions.
Keep in mind that IP addresses will be needed for each of the LAN interfaces.
Follow VLSM scheme to identify the different subnets according to network requirements. Please analyse and design the best IP addressing scheme. Create a table which lists the following information: Router Interfaces/ IP Address (Highest)/ IP Address (Lowest)/ Subnet Mask/ Default Gateway). Please show working out.
Note: The lowest IP addresses of each subnet should be given to the PCs. The highest IP addresses of each subnet are given as the default gateway.
Question 8: (15 marks)
Follow previous questions’ requirement, set up your network in Packet Tracer simulation software. Configure the three (3) routers:
- name the routers and label them as HQ, Branch1 and Branch 2 (3 marks)
- set the secret password as ‘class’ on all routers (3 mark)
- configure interfaces/ PCs (3 marks)
- configure TELNET on the HQ router with a password of ‘xyz123’ and (a suitable) MOTD (3 marks)
- Verify basic configuration and router operations (3 marks)
Packet tracer file must be submitted for the supporting evidence of assignment questions 8.
Question 9: (3 marks)
Configure the other PCs and configure the necessary static routes (such as IP route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 exit interface) on three routers to make a successful connection between routers.
“Show ip route” check and screen shot each router’s routing table.
Question 10: (8 marks)
PING from PC6 in LAN6 to PC4 in LAN4 (checked in Packet Tracer file). What protocol is used by PING? What are the names of two PING messages? Provide screen shots of successful ping (2 marks)
Record the information flow in EVENT LIST of simulation and explain the PDU information such as TYPE and involved layers in each stage (6 marks)
Note: 2 marks are given to the correct referring.
Packet tracer file must be submitted for the supporting evidence of assignment questions 10.
This assessment task covers topics (IP Addressing,VLSM design, Router Configuration,etc.) and has been designed to ensure that you are engaging with the subject content on a regular basis. More specifically it seeks to assess your ability to:
? design a subnet plan for a small company network including several routers and subnets;;
? discuss routing problems that can occur in complex networks;;
? correctly identify and discuss the functionality and limitations of different devices used in computer networks;;
? evaluate network performance;;
? perform basic router configuration of security passwords and interfaces;;
? configure simple routing.
The following criteria are designed to guide you in your presentation and preparation of your assignment. The criteria apply generally across all questions to show you the standard required for each of the criteria.
