OBJECTIVE: In this lab you will become familiar with following concepts:
For more information:
- Complete Work on SPT-Lab
- IMPORTANT: We have been experiencing problems with Xyplex Servers. You can directly connect your computer to the Switch .
Submission (everything must be typed / use computer / don't forget cover sheet):
- Draw a complete diagram of the network (do not include the server, Xyplex6 etc.) Include the following in your diagram (your diagram must look something like this; make sure all the details are shown):
- All cable types, MAC addresses, IP addresses,
- Switch ports and their MAC address, Switch ID, Which port is blocked and which is forwarding,
- Hub ID (MAC),
- The direction which the packet travels when you run a ping command (you can show this for only one PC). This must match your MAC-Table you obtained from the switch - this will be the spanning-tree.
- Switch/Hub Type (e.g., Cisco model)
- For each PC make sure you indicate the Eth, its IP address, and PC name (e.g., A)
- You do not have to answer any of the questions in the Lab.
 How to connect the PC directly to the Switch using Serial Interface
- Connect the 9-pin serial interface on the PC directly to the Switch using a serial (BLUE) cable. You do not need any adaptors on the switch side.
- Login as su
- From command prompt, type: minicom -s
- You need to setup the port first:
- Go to SERIAL PORT SETUP and change serial device to /dev/ttyS0
- Change Bps to 9600 8N1
- Then, save the file as 3500cisco
- exit (control A then q; you may need to press control z)
- From command prompt, type: minicom 3500cisco
