Assessment item 3

Network Design Value: 30%
Due Date: 12-May-2019

Return Date: 04-Jun-2019

Length: 500-700 words
Submission method options: Alternative submission method
Task

Task Task 1 (Research) [5 marks]

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.

Task 2 – Setting up a Network [10 marks]

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 gatewayinterface, then the remote router interface, then the servers. Check full network conductivity;
  4. Use the traceroute command from the client to the server. Include results of the traceroutein your submission, explaining meaning of traceroute output.

Task 3 – Configuring Network Services [10 marks]:
Using the same network topology that you have setup in Task 1, perform the following additional activities
1.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
2.WEB Server: Configure WEBs server on the dedicated machines in their specified networks,
with URL as yourname.csu.org
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 yourname.csu.org 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 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.
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 [5 marks]
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 unauthorized assistance with your work. This task is face to face questioning and answering with your lecturer, and must be completed during class time before the due date.

Rationale

This assessment task will assess the following learning outcome/s:

  • be able to analyse IP addressing requirements and design an addressing scheme.
  • be able to analyse the requirements of IP routing and choose appropriate routing methods.
  • be able to demonstrate how internetworking devices obtain their network configuration.
  • be able to ascertain and evaluate selection of applications and protocols for

transferring data across the internet.

Presentation

Please note that this assessment is asking for your reflections/thoughts and understanding of the topic. Therefore refrain from directly copying and pasting from other sources. I encourage wider reading to increase your knowledge base however proper referencing guidelines MUST be followed (please refer to the APA referencing guide in student resources) otherwise your work can be reported for plagiarism.
We have a very diverse learning group with students from different parts of the world, and it is important to respect that with such a diverse group, everyone’s ability to express themselves in written language can vary. Therefore it is important to respect diversity and opinions different from yours, no matter where they come from. Let us all also be mindful that written communication can be easily misinterpreted, therefore please be careful and avoid using strong words so we don’t cause confusion and/or anxiety for our peers.
Please ensure that (all tasks) mentioned in this Assessment must be submitted in the
Turn-it-in.
