Lab 1: Initial PC Setup with DHCP and Host-Based Tools

Use Windows applications and commands to investigate the IP configuration of your PC and the local network.

Lab 2: Observing the TCP Three-Way Handshake

Use packet sniffer software to observe the TCP initial Three-Way Handshake.

Lab 3: Testing Connectivity in an IP Network

Use PC Tools, such as ping, traceroute, and ipconfig, to gather network-related information.

Lab 4: Enhanced - Initial Wiring (Optional)

Examine the connectivity of your pod equipment that will be used for the router and switch lab practice exercises.

Lab 5: Switch Startup and Initial Configuration

Connect to your workgroup switch and complete the initial configuration.

Lab 6: Enhancing Security of the Switch Configuration

Increase the security of the initial switch configuration.

Lab 7: Operating and Configuring a Cisco IOS Device

Practice and demonstrate the use of the Command Line Interface (CLI) features.

Lab 8: Converting Decimal to Binary and Binary to Decimal (Exercise)

Test your ability to convert numbers from binary to decimal and decimal to binary.

Lab 9: Classifying IP Addresses (Exercise)

Classify IP addresses and convert IP addresses from decimal to binary format and/or binary to decimal format.

Lab 10: Computing Subnets and Hosts (Exercise)

Calculate the number of bits that are required in the mask for a given number of subnets, and calculate the number of host addresses that are available on each subnet.

Lab 11: Calculating Subnet Masks (Exercise)

Based on specific criteria provided, determine the subnet mask used, the binary and decimal format of the mask, the subnet address, the range of host addresses, and the directed broadcast address.

Lab 12: Enhanced - Router Startup and Initial Configuration

Connect to your routers and complete the initial configuration. Add commands to improve the usability of the CLI.

Lab 13: Enhancing the Security of the Router and Switch Configuration

Increase the security of the initial router configuration and add port security to the switch configuration.

Lab 14: Using Security Device Manager (SDM) to Configure DHCP Server Functions

Use the Cisco SDM to configure DHCP server functionality on one of your workgroup routers.
