Chapter 3. Lab Environment
This chapter outlines the lab objectives and physical topology. The following sections contain the lab objectives that will be completed in subsequent chapters: Terminal server configuration Cisco Catalyst switch configuration Cisco router configuration IP addressing Routing Information Protocol (RIP) Interior Group Routing Protocol (IGRP) Enhanced IGRP (EIGRP) Route redistribution ISDN dial-on-demand routing (DDR) Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) IPX EIGRP IPX RIP IPX routing redistribution Standard access lists Extended access lists Cisco router operations Physical layer configuration Basic router and data link layer configurations Network layer configurations (routing) The lab has two components—the physical topology and the lab objectives that you must complete. This chapter reviews the physical topology and provides lab objectives to complete. Each following chapter focuses on one section of the lab objectives and takes you step by step through the configuration process for that section. Don't be too worried if some of the objectives don't make sense. We will explain in detail what is to be done to complete the objective in the chapter that covers that task. The first step is to review the lab diagram. To make certain that you understand the lab objectives, take a look at the physical topology of the lab in Figure 3-1.

Let's take a look at R1. (Each router will be given a host name during the lab. We will use the host name as it appears on the lab diagram to refer to the different routers.) R1 is a Cisco 2500 series router with two serial ports and one Ethernet port. It is on the same segment as R2's Ethernet 0, and a TFTP server is running on the same segment (you will be using the TFTP server later in the lab). R1's Ethernet 0 and R2's Ethernet 0 are connected to a Cisco Catalyst 1900 (Cat 1900) on ports 1 and 2, respectively. R2 is a 2514 series router. It has two serial ports and two Ethernet ports. R2's Ethernet 0 is connected to port 2 on Cat 1900, and Ethernet 1 is connected to port 3 on Cat 1900 as well. R2's Serial 0 is connected to Serial 1 on the Frame Switch router. R3 is a Cisco 2500 series router with two serial ports and one Ethernet port. R3's Ethernet port is connected to Cat 1900 on port 4, and Serial 0 is connected to Serial 0 on the Frame Switch router. R3's Serial 1 port is connected to R5's Serial 0 port. R4 is a Cisco 2500 series router as well. It has two serial ports and one Ethernet port. R4's Ethernet port is connected to Cat 1900 on port 5. R4's Serial 0 is connected to Serial 2 on the Frame Switch router. R5 is a Cisco 2500 series router. It has two serial ports, one Token Ring port and one ISDN BRI port. R5's Serial 0 port is
