Currently I am working on a network I have devoloped. I have two routers, one company one remote. On the company router I have 2 switches and a server connected to it. And off those switches are two department computers on each switch. I'm not sure what else I am missing and am having a difficult time. My .pkt file is attached, along with my IP addressing scheme. Im having trouble with the two switches. I'm not sure how to set up trunking, as I'm more familiar this the concept when there are three switches connected. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
you are doing inter-vlan routing.
One Problem is with default getway of PCs are mixed up with IPs on Router sub-interfaces. f.e
interface FastEthernet1/0.1 has ip address 172.16.15.2 but PC Sales IP is 172.16.15.2 and default gateway is 172.16.15.1.
Change IP 172.16.15.2 to 172.16.15.1 on interface FastEthernet1/0.1
basically; PCs default gateway IPs should match IPs on routers (or router sub-interfaces)
Fix that for all PCs ( I think all PCs) by flipping IPs
Problem 2 - 2 links between switches should be trunks (you have just one link). No big deal here.
You have enabled RIP but there are no networks command statments. I did not check the other router but he will not see 172.16.15.0 networks.
With RIP is probably good idea to run version 2 and no auto-summary.
Okay, sorry about the delay. My passwords are cisco as you figured out and class. And i am using packet tracer version 5.3.
I fixed the IP's for the subinterfaces and enabled RIPv2 and no auto summary for both routers and their link to the switches/hub. Should no auto summary be configured for the server side and the link between routers?
Also could you point me in the right direction for what network commands statements need to be configured?
Attached is the new pkt file.
looks like you got RIP 2 with 172.16.0.0 on 2 routers;
now you need add network 18.104.22.168 on each.
also add no auto summary under RIP. You have class B network separated by Class C, you need no auto summary command to disable auto summarization and to avoid problems.
so both routers should have something like that
The first attempt times out, but the last 3 attempts are succsesful. I'm sure I've missed something here or there but as long as it is operating I am happy. Thank you very much for all your help. If you have any more suggestions I'll still be checking back on this thread.
How do I properly configure both the trunk lines. You said one was operational but not the other. My project is due tonight and im just working on some finishing touches.
