The following resources come from the 2009/10 BSc in Computer and Network Technologies (course number 2ELE0072) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes.
The objectives of this project are to demonstrate by building a virtual local area network environment:
• Installation and configuration of virtual network/server operating systems (virtual)
• Installation and configuration of virtual workstations (operating systems)
• Ensure a suitable level of security and access control exists for the virtual network.
• Ensure that the network can be easily managed.
This project entails using a virtual network to demonstrate a typical setup for a networked office environment. Students are expected to be able to perform simple installation of workstation and server operating systems. Students are required to investigate important management tools on a server operating system and to configure these tools to simplify management of the network. The network environment should have a suitable level of security and access control.
