Im studying for my CCDA and I dont have the real life practical answer for the following scenario:
A remote site has 10 nodes. The site has multiple subnets/VLANs.
My question are:
Q1. Should I include a layer 2 or layer 3 switch behind the edge router? e.g WAN---edge router---layer 3 switch ---layer 2 switch ---PCs
Q2. Is there a formula to ensure the subnet alocation will will meet the meet the future expansion? e.g. 3 x 100 nodes for 3 years.
Q3. Should I do intervlan on the layer 3 switch or on the edge router?
Q4. If there are enough public IPs, is it good to use public IPs for all nodes (including PCs)? If NAT is an option, how can I manage the PCs remotely?
Thanks for sharing.
