Some portion of your CCNA/CCNP training is choosing what system topology to utilize when you're assembling your home lab. Some of you are beginning with a couple of switches or switches, while others are beginning with additional. A client as of late sent me a rundown of his Cisco switches and switches that he has accessible for a home lab and requested my assistance in concocting the most ideal approach to utilize them.

There is no "right" or "wrong" response to this inquiry; once more, some portion of the learning procedure is arranging and reconfiguring the physical topology of your lab. How about we take a gander at the switches and switches he has accessible, including the interfaces on each, and think of one conceivable CCNA/CCNP home lab arrangement.

The gear list:

Two 3620 switches. Every ha 1 sequential port and 2 ethernet ports.

One 3640 switch. This has two ethernet cards, each with two ports, and two AUI ports.

Three 2503s, my undisputed top choice for home labs! These have 1 AUI port, 2 sequential interfaces, and one BRI interface each.

One 2524 switch. This has one sequential port, 1 ethernet port, and one BRI interface.

One 4500 switch. This has eight BRI ports, 2 ethernet ports, and all the more significantly, four sequential ports.

He additionally has a 5200 access server, an ISDN test system, one 2924 switch, and one 1924 switch.

Presently, in the event that you don't have this much hardware to work with, don't freeze! Most CCNA/CCNP up-and-comers don't; this is a greater amount of an activity in taking a gander at what you do have and utilizing it to the most extreme.

As I've referenced in a large number of my CCNA/CCNP home lab articles, an entrance server is an extraordinary thing to have. All he needs is an octal link to interface his With regards to different gadgets we use, and he's good to go. (In the event that you need an entrance server test design, there is one on my site in the Home Lab segment.)

A casing transfer switch is additionally extraordinary to have, and the 4500 will make an incredible FR switch. Having an edge transfer cloud in your CCNA/CCNP home lab is an incredible method to get experience arranging and investigating casing hand-off, a fundamental ability for CCNA achievement.

I would put both of the 3620s on the casing transfer cloud by means of the Sequential interface, just as two of the 2503s. That gives you four switches that will utilize casing hand-off to convey, and that is the most we can have since the 4500 has four sequential ports. The 4500 should be arranged as an edge transfer switch and associated with different switches through a DTE/DCE link. (Once more, in the event that you need an edge transfer switch design, the one I use in my cases is on the site in a similar spot as the entrance server setup.)

The two 2503s that are on the casing transfer cloud ought to likewise be associated by means of their BRI interfaces. The home lab additionally incorporates an ISDN test system, which is important to enable switches to impart by means of their BRI interfaces. Simply get two or three straight-through links to interface those two switches to the ISDN test system and that section is all set. (Keep in mind that you can't associate Cisco switches legitimately by means of their BRI interfaces.)

The majority of the switches in this lab have at any rate one ethernet or AUI port, so we can associate them all to both of the switches. The switches ought to be associated by means of in any event two hybrid links to permit practice with trunking, root connect political race, and VLANs. Having two switches truly adds a considerable amount to a CCNA/CCNP home lab's capacities. You can try different things with various subnets and vlans with also. Try not to be hesitant to make a plunge - that is the thing that a home lab is about!

So now we have four switches associated through edge hand-off, two by means of ISDN, and the others by means of ethernet fragments. Two of the switches that are not utilizing their sequential interfaces ought to be associated straightforwardly by means of their sequential ports. For this, you'll simply require another DTE/DCE link. Realizing how to raise the line between two legitimately associated sequential ports is a significant CCNA expertise, as is investigating it. You ought to have the option to carry such an association up with your eyes shut, and once you work with your own CCNA/CCNP home lab, you'll have the option to!

Additionally, remember to add a loopback interface to every last one of your switches. I like to utilize 1.1.1.1 for R1, 2.2.2.2 for R2, etc. Publicizing loopbacks is another incredible method to get practice with Tear, OSPF, EIGRP, IGRP, and static directing.

We've taken a heap of switches and switches and transformed them into a fabulous CCNA/CCNP home lab. Regardless of whether you're working with two Cisco gadgets or ten, thinking of your own home lab topology is an extraordinary learning knowledge and the start of building up your systematic and investigating aptitudes.
