Configuring a Basic Cisco Network
In this lab we will go over a basic network set up. The following diagram depicts how we will set up our network.
- Configure hostnames on each router.
- Configure passwords on console, vty, and aux lines and ensure that they are turned on.
- Configure an encrypted password for global configuration mode.
- Configure interfaces with IP addresses shown in the network diagram.
- Configure basic RIP settings.
Completed Router Configurations
The following are finished configuration files for the routers in this lab.
Router 1 Config
Router 2 Config
Router 3 Config
Router 4 Config
- Hostnames were changed with the 'hostname name' command.
- Line passwords were changed by entering each line and issuing the 'password password' command.
- Global config was secured with an encrypted password by entering the 'enable secret password'.
- IP addresses were set by entering interface configuration and entering the command 'ip address ipaddress subnetmask'.
- RIP was configured by entering the 'router rip' command. RIP was then configured to network the 192.168.1.0 network on each router with the 'network 192.168.1.0' command.
