Task 1 – Setting up a Network [10 marks]
Perform the following activities and support your workings with screenshots [10 marks]:
Configure the PCs, Server and Router interfaces with appropriate network addressing;
Configure any classless dynamic routing protocol on the routers;
On any client, ping the client’s own network interfaces, then the local router gateway interface, then the remote router interface, then the servers. Check full network conductivity;
Use the traceroute command from the client to the server. Include results of the traceroute in your submission, explaining meaning of traceroute output.
Task 2 – Configuring Network Services [10 marks]:
Using the same network topology that you have setup in Task 1, perform the following additional activities
DHCP: Configure DHCP servers and show that the client PC has successfully received IP Addresses and other network parameters (default gateway, subnet mask and DNS IP address) using DHCP
WEB Server: Configure WEBs server on the dedicated machines in their specified networks, with URL as yourname.csu.org
DNS: Configure DNS Servers on the server device and demonstrate that forward and reverse DNS are working from the client PC; test DNS Server by browsing yourname.csu.org from client PC, DNS must resolve this URL to IP address of WEB Server
Firewall: Configure traffic filtering on the web servers to block ONLY HTTP TCP traffic between one of the client PCs and WEB Servers and allowing all other IP traffic, provide evidence of such traffic filtering. You should verify firewall by using PING and HTTPS TCP traffic which should not be blocked.
