Building Your Own LAN CONNECTING TO THE WORLD

  1. 1. Building Your Own LAN CONNECTING TO THE WORLD
  2. 2. How to create a LAN <ul><li>Connect the hardware together </li></ul><ul><li>Install software and “protocols” </li></ul><ul><li>III. Install “services” </li></ul><ul><li>IV. Set up files to share between computers </li></ul>
  3. 3. I. Hardware to connect <ul><li>Computers with NIC cards in them </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Now the NIC is often on the motherboard </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cables </li></ul><ul><li>Hub or Switch </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What could the downside of using a hub be? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Which is faster a switch or a hub? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Which is more secure a switch or a hub? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Router </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Usually your gateway to your ISP and the Internet </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Key hardware <ul><li>What are the following?: </li></ul><ul><li>Hub (unsophisticated, rebroadcasts everything from your computer to everyone on the same hub) </li></ul><ul><li>Switch (like a hub but only broadcasts to where it should go—it filters and forwards) </li></ul><ul><li>Router (A device that forwards data packets along networks. A router is connected to at least two networks, commonly two LANs or WANs or a LAN and its ISP’s network. Routers are located at gateways, the places where two or more networks connect) </li></ul>
  5. 5. II. INSTALL SOFTWARE & PROTOCOLS <ul><li>Suitable operating system software for networks such as </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Windows XP (workstation) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Server (Windows 2003 Server) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NOS (Windows 2003 Enterprise) Protocol is the common data communication language between computers. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Protocol determines the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the type of error checking to be used </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>data compression method, if any </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>how the sending device will indicate that it has finished sending a message </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>how the receiving device will indicate that it has received a message </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. KEY PROTOCOLS <ul><li>NETBEUI </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NetBEUI stands for NetBIOS enhanced user interface. In turn, NetBIOS stands for network basic input/output system. This is an unroutable network protocol used by DOS, Microsoft Windows and OS/2-based systems to communicate with locally-attached file servers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DOES NOT require special configuration </li></ul></ul><ul><li>TCP/IP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>TCP/IP is the primary Internet protocol </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>TCP is one of the main protocols in TCP/IP networks. Whereas the IP protocol deals only with digital data packets, TCP enables two hosts to establish a connection and exchange streams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data and also guarantees that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DOES require some configuration </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. III. INSTALL SERVICES (FUNCTIONALITY) <ul><li>For example: file and print sharing, FTP, Web, etc. </li></ul>
  8. 8. IV. Set up what you want to share <ul><li>WORKGROUPS </li></ul><ul><li>RESOURCES TO SHARE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>SELECT A FOLDER </li></ul></ul><ul><li>ACCESS LEVEL (PERMISSIONS) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>FULL ACCESS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CHANGES </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>READ ONLY </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Networking Activities
  10. 10. #1 Crossover Cable The most simple connection <ul><ul><li>For transferring data from one machine to another when not on a LAN (perhaps an old hard drive to a new one) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Playing games without a hub (outside or in a car) </li></ul></ul>Note: “White w. Orange” means White with Orange Stripe More on cables
  11. 11. #1 Crossover Cable Instructions <ul><li>I. Hardware </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plug crossover cable into NICs of both machines </li></ul></ul><ul><li>II. Software and Protocols (assuming XP) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>On each machine configure TCP/IP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Start  Control Panel  Network Connections </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Or right click on “My Network Places” and select properties </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Right clink on “Local Area Connection” and select properties </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Make sure your NIC card is showing </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Select “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” or install if necessary </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Click on Properties [Note: discuss briefly getting IP address automatically from a DHCP server] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Select “Use the following IP address” and type in the following </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>IP Address: 10.1.1.1 for one machine and 10.1.1.2 for the other </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 for both machines </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Click “OK” (gateway is not needed as we have no Internet connection) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
