Setting up a real world cisco lab

Unanswered Question
May 13th, 2008


i am trying to learn cisco and i have passion to learn

I know wat i am asking is gonna be really long and complicated but i would really appreciate any help to get me started

My question is

I have three 2600 routers with two wic 1t cards in each of them and one 2500 series frame relay router

with that i have 2 2950 switches to make the my home lab better

I also managed to have 2 laptops with 2003 server edition on each of them

Now i want to set up an production enviroment example with these equipment in my home

I dont have any experience in real world

so if somebody could assist me getting that done or provide me some examples how the topology could be?

and provide me some examples of making one laptop a dhcp or dns and then using the commands on the router like ip name-server or ip dhcp pool etc or using radius on one laptop and setting up aaa on routers etc

Please help

DHCP is like:

ip dhcp excluded-address

ip dhcp pool melPool



domain-name melbourne


Relatively simple.

Topology wise you'd probably just do


or something like that (you could add your forth router in there and practice redundent links etc)
