You are required to set up a network consisting of PCs, routers, switches and servers. You need to configure routing between routers, use any dynamic routing protocol. The PCs (clients) will be connected to switches and switches to the router's interfaces.
Clients and Servers are connected on different networks (don’t attach clients and servers on same network).

Client(s) <--> Switch <--> Router <--> Router <--> Switch <--> Server(s)

Use ONLY the IP address which you calculated in Assignment 2.

Perform the following activities and support your workings with screenshots [10 marks]:
1. Configure the PCs, Server and Router interfaces with appropriate network addressing;
2. Configure any classless dynamic routing protocol on the routers;
3. 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;

4.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.
