Packet Tracer - Skills Integration Challenge
Configure hostnames and IP addresses on two Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS) switches using the command-line interface (CLI). Use Cisco IOS commands to specify or limit access to the device configurations. Use IOS commands to save the running configuration. Configure two host devices with IP addresses. Verify connectivity between the two PC end devices. Scenario
As a recently hired LAN technician, your network manager has asked you to demonstrate your ability to configure a small LAN. Your tasks include configuring initial settings on two switches using the Cisco IOS and configuring IP address parameters on host devices to provide end-to-end connectivity. You are to use two switches and two hosts/PCs on a cabled and powered network.
What I did: In this lab I did a very basic configuration between two switches and two PC’s. I had to configure the ip address of the two PC’s next I configured hostnames and passwords to limit access to the device configuration. I also set an ip address for the switch virtual interface and other basic parameters. Problems: The only problem I really had was when I was configuring the console password. I accidently configured the wrong password, but I caught my error and fixed it. What I learned: what I learned in this lab tested my knowledge of a basic switch and PC configuration. Throughout this chapter I learned and recorded in my engineering journal many new Cisco CLI commands. I learned how to name the switch and set encrypted passwords. I learned that Vlan 1 has a shutdown default setting and the interface will not be up and up until it is enabled. I also...
