Routing and Switching Essentials

CST 164

Course Description

Prerequisite: CST 161. Configures a router and a switch for basic functionality. Configures and troubleshoots routers and switches and resolves common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. (15-30)

Outcomes and Objectives

Demonstrate nderstanding of LAN switching technologies.

Objectives:

  • Configure and verify initial switch settings including remote access management.
  • Verify network status and switch operation using basic utilities.
  • Describe how VLANs create logically separate networks and the need for routing between them.
  • Configure and verify VLANs.
  • Configure and verify trunking on switches.

Demonstrate understanding of IP routing technologies.

Objectives:

  • Configure and verify routing settings for a static or default route.
  • Differentiate methods of routing and routing protocols.
  • Configure and verify OSPF (single area).
  • Configure and verify inter-VLAN routing (router on a stick).
  • Configure SVI.

Configure IP services.

Objectives:

  • Configure and verify DHCP.
  • Describe the types, features, and applications of ACL.
  • Configure and verify ACLs in a network environment.
  • Identify the basic operation of NAT.
  • Configure and verify NAT for given network requirements.
  • Configure and verify NTP as a client.

Configure network device security.

Objectives:

  • Configure and verify network device security features.
  • Configure and verify Switch Port security features.
  • Configure and verify ACLs to filter network traffic.
  • Configure and verify ACLs to limit access to the router.

Troubleshoot network problems.

Objectives:

  • Troubleshoot and resolve common problems associated with IP addressing and host configurations.
  • Troubleshoot and resolve VLAN problems.
  • Troubleshoot and resolve trunking problems on switches.
  • Troubleshoot and resolve ACL issues.
  • Troubleshoot and resolve Layer 1 problems.
