Task

Task 1 (Research)

In this task, you are required to research a range of options/methods that can be used for network designing in this assessment. Based on your research you are required to clearly list your views on pros and cons of each available option for the completion of this assessment and select an option that you will use to complete this assessment [5 marks].

Task 2 - Setting up a Network

You are required to set up a network consisting of PCs, routers, switches and servers. You need to configure routing between routers. The routers will have multiple network interfaces. The PCs (clients) will be connected to switches and switches to the router's interfaces and.

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

Use ONLY the IP address ranges you designed for this network in assessment 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 RIP or static routing on the routers;
 3. On the client ping the client's own network interfaces, then the local router gateway interfaces, then the remote router interfaces, then the servers;
 4. Use the traceroute command from the client to the server. Include results of the traceroute in your submission.

Task 3 - Configuring Network Services

Using the same network topology that you have setup in Task 1, perform the following additional activities [10 marks]:

1.DHCP: Configure DHCP servers and show that the client PC has successfully received IP Addresses and other network parameters (default router, netmask, DNS) using DHCP;
2.WEB Server: Configure WEBs server on the dedicated machines in their specified networks, with URL as servername.yourname.class
3.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 servername.yourname.class from client PC, DNS must resolve this URL to IP address of WEB Server
4.Firewall: Configure traffic filtering on the web servers to block ONLY TCP traffic between one of the client PCs and WEB Servers and allowing all other IP traffic, provide evidence of such traffic filtering.

A series of screenshots with commentary on each of the required tasks is to be submitted. The submission must include a comprehensive explanation of each task and all the commands used along with the output (or final result) in report format.

Task 4

Task 4 will be given to you by your lecturer 7 days before date due. This is to allow everyone to work in this timeframe and to prevent unauthorised assistance with your work.] [5 marks]
