You just applied for a job with Cisco. You passed the first round of the interviews. You are now back for the 2nd part. They want you to use a text editor like notepad/notepad++ to write out all the commands that you would need setup this simple network. You’ve been given the 192.168.1.0/24 network. You need to break it up into 5 networks making sure to optimize the amounts of IP addresses.
- 3 networks of at least 50 clients.
- 2 WAN links to connect the East and West wings of the building with the center.
On each subnet of the network Cisco wants to see your work on how you designed it.
They want to see:
- Each subnet network
- Each Broadcast
- Each Range of each subnet network
Because it’s a small network they don’t want you to use routing protocols. All routes have to be static. All PC’s should be set to DHCP and “ro” will be the DHCP server for the entire network.
Once you are done all your work you will need to take the laptop that is running the text editor go to the network site and paste the commands onto real devices. Only the students that get 100% will be hired.
Test your Setup
To test your setup you need to be able to go to each PC and be able to ping every other PC on the network.
