In this lab, you have to config the routers both HQ and BR-1 to make the connection throughout the network and with the Internet.
In this lab, a hub has been connected to interface Fa0/1 of Switch 1. It is an 8-port hub but only 5 hosts are allowed to connect to it. The administrator wants to ensure that only 5 hosts can connect. PC-1 and PC-2 along with any 3 other hosts can connect to the hub.
In this lab we will configure a Cisco Catalyst 2950 with three new VLANs. Also, we will then use the available Cisco IOS show commands to verify the configuration.
VTP is a Layer 2 messaging protocol that maintains VLAN configuration consistency by managing the addition, deletion, and renaming of VLANs on a network-wide basis. VTP minimizes misconfigurations and configuration inconsistencies that can result in a number of problems, such as duplicate VLAN names, incorrect VLAN-type specifications, and security violations.
It’s not an easy way to configure your device using the console port each time, however you’ll use the Telnet or SSH to access to your device remotely, but Telnet is not secure at all, for this, configuring the SSH on your Cisco device is so important.
In this post, we’ll see how can we performing an initial switch configuration (can also done with a router).
