Lab-based Activities

Week Beginning (Napier/JWatt/Lauder): 13 Oct 2003 [Activities]

The activities for this week are:

Lab Activity 3.1

Host emulator. Set the IP address to 192.168.0.3, the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0, the gateway address to 192.168.0.1, and the DNS server to 168.10.11.12 [Link][PDF]


Lab Activity 3.2: IPCONFIG emulator

IPConfig emulator. [Link][PDF][Background]

From this determine the following settings for your computer:

- IP Address.
- Subnet mask.
- MAC address.
- DNS server address.
- IP gateway address.


Lab Activity 3.3: UNIX emulator

The main activities are to:

- Determine the IP Address and subnet mask using the ifconfig command.
- Show the ARP cache with the arp -a command.
- Using the netstat command, show the current network connections.
- Using the ping command, ping the local port to see if it is responding.


Lab Activity 3.4: Windows network details

On your own PC, use Start->Run, and then enter the command IPCONFIG /all.

From this determine the following settings for your computer:

- IP Address.
- Subnet mask.
- MAC address.
- DNS server address.
- IP gateway address.

Using the ping command, ping the local port to see if it is responding.


Lab Activity 3.5: UNIX network details

Login into the telnet.dcs.napier.ac.uk host (using Start->Run, and then enter telnet telnet.dcs.napier.ac.uk). using your matriculation number and password. The main activities are to:

- Determine the IP Address and subnet mask using the ifconfig command.
- Show the ARP cache with the arp -a command.

Additional Activities

The additional activities for this week are:

Activity 3.1: FDDI faults

FDDI allows for the network to cope with a break into both rings by creating a virtual ring using the unaffected parts of the other two rings. For the ring given in the activity, determine the sequence of the nodes used in the virtual ring. [Link]

and:

Activity 3.2: ATM traffic

Perform an on-line test for the classification of traffic types. For this drag the traffic type, such as Real Audio, Nuclear Plant Control, File Transfer, TELETEX, Word Processing, Real-Time Control, onto the traffic characteristic. [Link]

and:

Activity 3.3: Test

Please conduct the following test which is based on Unit 3. [Link]

and:
