CompNtwk : Lab 7.3.5 Testing a Prototype Network

Task 1: Assemble and connect component devices

Step 1: Review the Topology Diagram and the Equipment section of the test plan

a. Determine which equipment or suitable substitutes will be required to meet the objectives of the lab.

b. Modify the topology diagram as necessary to fit available equipment.

Step 2: Review the Installation Checklist provided in lab 7.3.2.

Accommodate any equipment limitations with the use of loopback addresses.

Task 2: Perform Test 1: Basic Connectivity Test

Step 1: Using the Installation Checklist, perform the steps to connect and configure the

prototype network to perform Test 1.

Step 2: Perform the Test 1 procedures according to the Server Farm Design Test Plan and record the results in the Results and Conclusions section.

Determine if the test was successful. If not, discuss your results with your instructor and the other students in your class. Perform the test again if necessary.

Task 3: Perform Test 2: VLAN Configuration Test

Step 1: Using the Installation Checklist, perform the steps to connect and configure the

prototype network to perform Test 2.

Step 2: Perform the Test 2 procedures according to the Server Farm Design Test Plan and record the results in the Results and Conclusions section.

Determine if the test was successful. If not, discuss your results with your instructor and the other students in your class. Perform the test again if necessary.

Task 4: Perform Test 3: VLAN Routing Test

Step 1: Using the Installation Checklist, perform the steps to connect and configure the

prototype network to perform Test 3.

Step 2: Perform the Test 3 procedures according to the Server Farm Design Test Plan and record the results in the Results and Conclusions section.

Determine if the test was successful. If not, discuss your results with your instructor and the other students in your class. Perform the test again if necessary.

Task 5: Perform Test 4: ACL Filtering Test

Step 1: Review security goals for the FilmCompany network

Examine the test plan, checklist, and other documentation to determine how ACLs can support the security goals.

Step 2: Examine results of connectivity tests to determine targets for the ACLs

Decide which devices should be permitted, which protocols should be used, and where ACLs should be

placed.

Step 3: Create ACLs

Step 4: Using the Installation Checklist, perform the steps to connect and configure the

prototype network to perform Test 4.

Step 5: Perform the Test 4 procedures according to the Server Farm Design Test Plan and record the results in the Results and Conclusions section.

Determine if the test was successful. If not, discuss your results with your instructor and the other students in your class. Perform the test again if necessary

Task 6 Reflection

Examine the test results and conclusions. How this network would be affected if:

1. The number of servers was doubled?

Lalu lintas di S2 akan meningkat. Mungkin akan bermanfaat menambahkan saklar dan pemecahan server untuk menghindari single point of failure.

2. The S2 switch had a system failure?

Akses ke server akan hilang.

3. A new branch office with 25 new hosts was added?

Beban pada router R2 atau R1 akan meningkat tergantung pada akses apa yang dibutuhkan pengguna terhadap sumber daya.

Now that you have followed the process of prototyping from creating the plan through testing and recording results and conclusions, what are the advantages and disadvantages of using a simulation program, such as Packet Tracer, compared to building the prototype with physical devices?

Penggunaan program simulasi dapat sangat membantu dalam skenario pengujian berbagai koneksi, alamat IP dan isu-isu lainnya. Perangkat lain dapat dimasukkan ke dalam bermain daripada ketika membangun prototipe menggunakan peralatan yang nyata, namun tidak ada pengganti untuk menggunakan perlengkapan nyata, jika tersedia.
