  • Network - A group of computers connected together in a way that allows information to be exchanged between the computers.
    Node - Anything that is connected to the network. While a node is typically a computer, it can also be something like a printer or CD-ROM tower.
    Segment - Any portion of a network that is separated, by a switch, bridge or router, from other parts of the network.
    Backbone - The main cabling of a network that all of the segments connect to. Typically, the backbone is capable of carrying more information than the individual segments. For example, each segment may have a transfer rate of 10 Mbps (megabits per second: 1 million bits a second), while the backbone may operate at 100 Mbps.
    Topology - The way that each node is physically connected to the network.
  • Similar to a bus network, rings have nodes daisy chained, but the end of the network in a ring topology comes back around to the first node, creating a complete circuit. Each node takes a turn sending and receiving information through the use of a token. The token along with any data is sent from the first node to the second node which extracts the data addressed to it and adds any data it wishes to send. Then second node passes the token and data to the third node, etc. until ti comes back around to the first node again. Only the node with the token is allowed to send data . All other nodes must wait for the token to come to them.
  • A hub does not perform any type of filtering or routing of the data. A hub is a junction that joins all the different nodes together.
  • CAT 5 is currently under consideration to be incorporated into the Gigabit Ethernet specification for short distance wiring. While longer connections using Gigabit Ethernet use optical fiber, the goal is to leverage the CAT 5 twisted-pair wiring most organizations already have in place for connections out to the desktop.
  • Use of optical fibers over ;
    Optical fiber (or "fiber optic") refers to the medium and the technology associated with the transmission of information as light pulses along a glass or plastic wire or fiber. Optical fiber carries much more information than conventional copper wire and is in general not subject to electromagnetic interference and the need to retransmit signals. Most telephone company long-distance lines are now of optical fiber.
    Transmission on optical fiber wire requires repeater at distance intervals. The glass fiber requires more protection within an outer cable than copper. For these reasons and because the installation of any new wiring is labor-intensive, few communities yet have optical fiber wires or cables from the phone company's branch office to local customers (known as local loop).
    single mode fiber fiber is used for longer distances; multimode fiber fiber is used for shorter distances.
  • Multimode has a larger core than single mode optical fiber
  • In wireless LAN (WLAN) technology, 802.11 refers to a family of specifications developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). There are three specifications in the family: 802.11, 802.11a, and 802.11b.
    All three of the above mentioned specifications use CSMA/CD carrier sense multiple access with collision detection (CSMA/CD)as the path sharing protocol. If a source station has a data packet to send, the station checks the system to see if the path medium is busy. If the medium is not busy, the packet is sent; if the medium is busy, the station waits until the first moment that the medium becomes clear. Testing is done repeatedly by the source via a short test message called RTS (ready to send). The data packet is not transmitted until the destination station returns a confirmation message called CTS (clear to send). If two stations send at exactly the same time, CSMA/CD prevents the loss of data that might otherwise occur and provides a system for retrying.
    The 802.11 and 802.11b specifications apply to wireless Ethernet LANs, and operate at frequencies in the 2.4-GHz region of the radio spectrum. Data speeds are generally 1 Mbps or 2 Mbps for 802.11, and 5.5 Mbps or 11 Mbps for 802.11b, although speeds up to about 20 Mbps are realizable with 802.11b. The 802.11b standard is backward compatible with 802.11. The modulation used in 802.11 has historically been phase-shift keying (PSK). The modulation method selected for 802.11b is known as CCK (complementary code keying), which allows higher data speeds and is less susceptible to multipath-propagation interference.
    The 802.11a specification applies to wireless ATM systems and operates at radio frequencies between 5 GHz and 6 GHz. A modulation scheme known as OFDM (orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) makes possible data speeds as high as 54 Mbps, but most commonly, communications takes place at 6 Mbps, 12 Mbps, or 24 Mbps.
  • Nowadays you see hubs with switches; but basically the hub is the place where data comes together while the switch determines how and where data is forwarded from the place where data comes together.
  • bridge
    In telecommunication networks, a bridge is a product that connects a local area network (LAN) to another local area network that uses the same protocol (for example, Ethernet or token ring). You can envision a bridge as being a device that decides whether a message from you to someone else is going to the local area network in your building or to someone on the local area network in the building across the street. A bridge examines each message on a LAN, "passing" those known to be within the same LAN, and forwarding those known to be on the other interconnected LAN (or LANs).
    In bridging networks, computer or node addresses have no specific relationship to location. For this reason, messages are sent out to every address on the network and accepted only by the intended destination node. Bridges learn which addresses are on which network and develop a learning table so that subsequent messages can be forwarded to the right network.
    Bridging networks are generally always interconnected local area networks since broadcasting every message to all possible destinations would flood a larger network with unnecessary traffic. For this reason, router networks such as the Internet use a scheme that assigns addresses to nodes so that a message or packet can be forwarded only in one general direction rather than forwarded in all directions.
    A bridge works at the data-link (physical network) level of a network, copying a data frame from one network to the next network along the communications path.
    A bridge is sometimes combined with a router in a product called a brouter.
  • The range for WAN transmission will vary: 56 Kb/s to 1.544 Mb/s
  • It is use to guide product implementors so that their products will consistently work with other products.
  • OSI divides telecommunication into seven layers. The layers are in two groups. The upper four layers are used whenever a message passes from or to a user.
    The lowest three layers (Up to network layer) are used when any message passes through the host computer.
    Message intended for this computer pass to the upper layers.
    Message destined for some other host are not passed up to the upper layers but are forwarded to another host.
    Physical layer: Bit stream through network at electrical/mechanical level

    • 13. Ring Topology  Similar to a bus network, rings have nodes daisy chained, but the end of the network in a ring topology comes back around to the first node, creating a complete circuit. Each node takes a turn sending and receiving information through the use of a token. The token along with any data is sent from the first node to the second node which extracts the data addressed to it and adds any data it wishes to send. Then second node passes the token and data to the third node, etc. until it comes back around to the first node again. Only the node with the token is allowed to send data . All other nodes must wait for the token to come to them. 13

    • 62. SKILLS FOR INDIA Types of Network
    • 63. Major Categories of Networks Local Area Network Metropolitan Area network Wide area network The internet Personal Area Network 63
    • 64. Local Area Network A Local Area Network (LAN) is a relatively small network that is confined to a small geographic area, such as a single office or a building. Laptops, desktops, servers, printers, and other networked devices that make up a LAN are located relatively close to each other. A key characteristic is that all of the equipment that comprises a LAN, is owned by a single entity. 64
    • 65. Metropolitan Area Network The term Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) is typically used to describe a network that spans a citywide area or a town. MANs are larger than traditional LANs and predominantly use high-speed media, such as fiber optic cable, for their backbones. MANs are common in organizations that need to connect several smaller facilities together for information sharing. This is often the case for hospitals that need to connect treatment facilities, outpatient facilities, doctor's offices, labs, and research offices for access to centralized patient and treatment information. MANs share many of the same security threats as LANs, but on a larger scale. The plight of an administrator in a central location granting access to countless offices that are scattered within a city is a difficult one that demands strict access control mechanisms to protect against unauthorized information access. 65
    • 66. MAN Architecture 66
    • 67. Wide Area Network A Wide Area Network (WAN) covers a significantly larger geographic area than LANs or MANs. A WAN uses public networks, telephone lines, and leased lines to tie together smaller networks such as LANs and MANs over a geographically dispersed area. Connecting devices in different geographic areas together for information sharing, WANs are an important piece of enterprise networks. For example, consider the VisaNet global network used by Visa International. The VisaNet network connects locations throughout 150 countries to validate and debit credit-card transactions at over 24 million locations. By providing security and simplicity over a standardbased WAN architecture, Visa International relies on their network infrastructure to provide reliable access to merchants who accept Visa credit cards for transactions. 67
    • 68. WAN Architecture 68
    • 69. Personal Area Network A more recent term used to describe a type of network is a Personal Area Network (PAN). PAN networks are usually wireless, established in an ondemand or ad-hoc fashion when needed to communicate between two or more devices. PAN networks can be used between devices owned by two different parties, or between two devices owned by one person, such as a PDA and a laptop or mobile phone. These networks are usually characterized as short-range, often limited to 10 meters or less in range. An example of a PAN technology is Bluetooth wireless networking. Bluetooth is designed as a cable-replacement technology, allowing users to discard the serial and USB cables used by many of today's peripheral devices and rely on a Bluetooth PAN for communication. Bluetooth PANs support up to 7 devices in a single network and can be used for proprietary protocols (such as PDA synchronization) or standards-based protocols, including Internet access over IP and the Bluetooth Network Encapsulation Protocol 69 (BNEP).

    • 71. Data Communications Through WANs  WANs were developed to communicate over a large geographical area (e.g. lab-to-lab; city-to-city; east coast-to-west coast; North America-toSouth America etc)  WANs require the crossing of public right of ways (under control and regulations of the interstate commerce and institute of telephone and data communications established by the gov’t and international treaties).  WANs around the world relies on the infrastructure established by the telephone companies (“common carrier”) or public switched telephone network (PSTN)  WANs consists of a number of interconnected switching nodes (today = computers). Transmission signals are routed across the network automatically by software control to the specified destination. The purpose of these nodes are to route messages through switching facilities to move data from node to node to its destination 71
    • 72.  WANs originally implemented circuit switching and packet switching technologies. Recently, frame relay and asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks have been implemented to achieve higher operating and processing speeds for the message  WAN are owned by the common carrier in the U.S. and government in most foreign countries  Interconnected devices, I.e. LANs or Personal Computers (PC) or Workstation or Servers can be (usually are) privately owned by companies 72

    • 76. ISO/OSI Reference Model     Open Systems Interconnection No one really uses this in the real world. A reference model so others can develop detailed interfaces Value: The reference model defines 7 layers of functions that take place at each end of communication and with each layer adding its own set of special related functions  Flow of data through each layer at one 76
    • 77. ISO/OSI Reference Model File Transfer, Email, Remote Login  ASCII Text, Sound (syntax layer)  Establish/manage connection  End-to-end control & error checking (ensure complete data transfer): TCP  Routing and Forwarding Address: IP  Two party communication: Ethernet  How to transmit signal; coding Hardware means of sending an receiving data on a carrier 77
    • 78. Layer 1: Physical layer The physical layer defines electrical and physical specifications for devices. In particular, it defines the relationship between a device and a transmission medium, such as a copper or fiber optical cable. The major functions and services performed by the physical layer are: Establishment and termination of a connection to a communications medium Participation in the process whereby the communication resources are effectively shared among multiple users. For example, contention resolution and flow control 78
    • 79. Modulation, or conversion between the representation of digital data in user equipment and the corresponding signals transmitted over a communications channel. These are signals operating over the physical cabling (such as copper and optical fiber) or over aradio link Parallel SCSI buses operate in this layer, although it must be remembered that the logical SCSI protocol is a transport layer protocol that runs over this bus. Various physical-layer Ethernet standards are also in this layer; Ethernet incorporates both this layer and the data link layer. The same applies to other local-area networks, such as token ring, FDDI, ITUT and IEEE 802.11, as well as personal area networks such as Bluetooth and IEEE 802.15.4. 79
    • 80. Layer 2: Data link layer The data link layer provides the functional and procedural means to transfer data between network entities and to detect and possibly correct errors that may occur in the physical layer. Originally, this layer was intended for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint media, characteristic of wide area media in the telephone system. Local area network architecture, which included broadcast-capable multi access media, was developed independently of the ISO work in IEEE Project 802. IEEE work assumed sub-layering and management functions not required for WAN use. In modern practice, only error detection, not flow control using sliding window, is present in data link protocols such as Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), and, on local area networks, the IEEE 802.2 LLC layer is not used for most protocols on the Ethernet, and on other local area networks, its flow control and acknowledgment mechanisms are rarely used. Sliding window flow control and acknowledgment is used at the transport layer by protocols such as TCP, but is still used in niches where X.25 offers performance advantages. 80
    • 81. The ITU-T standard, which provides high-speed local area networking over existing wires (power lines, phone lines and coaxial cables), includes a complete data link layer which provides both error correction and flow control by means of a selective repeat Sliding Window Protocol. Both WAN and LAN service arrange bits, from the physical layer, into logical sequences called frames. Not all physical layer bits necessarily go into frames, as some of these bits are purely intended for physical layer functions. For example, every fifth bit of the FDDI bit stream is not used by the layer. 81
    • 82. Layer 3: Network layer The network layer provides the functional and procedural means of transferring variable length data sequences from a source host on one network to a destination host on a different network (in contrast to the data link layer which connects hosts within the same network), while maintaining the quality of service requested by the transport layer. The network layer performs network routing functions, and might also perform fragmentation and reassembly, and report delivery errors. Routers operate at this layer, sending data throughout the extended network and making the Internet possible. This is a logical addressing scheme – values are chosen by the network engineer. The addressing scheme is not hierarchical. 82
    • 83. Layer 3: Network layer The network layer may be divided into three sub layers: Sub network access – that considers protocols that deal with the interface to networks, such as X.25; Sub network-dependent convergence – when it is necessary to bring the level of a transit network up to the level of networks on either side Sub network-independent convergence – handles transfer across multiple networks 83
    • 84. An example of this latter case is CLNP, or IPv6 ISO 8473. It manages the connectionless transfer of data one hop at a time, from end system to ingress router, router to router, and from egress router to destination end system. It is not responsible for reliable delivery to a next hop, but only for the detection of erroneous packets so they may be discarded. In this scheme, IPv4 and IPv6 would have to be classed with X.25 as subnet access protocols because they carry interface addresses rather than node addresses. A number of layer-management protocols, a function defined in the Management Annex, ISO 7498/4, belong to the network layer. These include routing protocols, multicast group management, network-layer information and error, and network-layer address assignment. It is the function of the payload that makes these belong to the network layer, not the protocol that carries 84
    • 85. Layer 4: Transport layer The transport layer provides transparent transfer of data between end users, providing reliable data transfer services to the upper layers. The transport layer controls the reliability of a given link through flow control, segmentation/desegmentation, and error control. Some protocols are stateand connection-oriented. This means that the transport layer can keep track of the segments and retransmit those that fail. The transport layer also provides the acknowledgement of the successful data transmission and sends the next data if no errors occurred. 85
    • 86. OSI defines five classes of connection-mode transport protocols ranging from class 0 (which is also known as TP0 and provides the least features) to class 4 (TP4, designed for less reliable networks, similar to the Internet). Class 0 contains no error recovery, and was designed for use on network layers that provide error-free connections. Class 4 is closest to TCP, although TCP contains functions, such as the graceful close, which OSI assigns to the session layer. Also, all OSI TP connection-mode protocol classes provide expedited data and preservation of record boundaries. Although not developed under the OSI Reference Model and not strictly conforming to the OSI definition of the transport layer, the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) of the Internet Protocol Suite are commonly categorized as layer-4 protocols within OSI. 86
    • 87. Layer 5: Session layer The session layer controls the dialogues (connections) between computers. It establishes, manages and terminates the connections between the local and remote application. It provides for full-duplex, half-duplex, or simplex operation, and establishes checkpointing, adjournment, termination, and restart procedures. The OSI model made this layer responsible for graceful close of sessions, which is a property of the Transmission Control Protocol, and also for session check pointing and recovery, which is not usually used in the Internet Protocol Suite. The session layer is commonly implemented explicitly in application environments that use remote procedure calls. On this level, InterProcess_(computing) communication happen (SIGHUP, SIGKILL, End Process, etc.). 87
    • 88. Layer 6: Presentation layer The presentation layer establishes context between application-layer entities, in which the higher-layer entities may use different syntax and semantics if the presentation service provides a mapping between them. If a mapping is available, presentation service data units are encapsulated into session protocol data units, and passed down the stack. This layer provides independence from data representation (e.g., encryption) by translating between application and network formats. The presentation layer transforms data into the form that the application accepts. This layer formats and encrypts data to be sent across a network. It is sometimes called the syntax layer. The original presentation structure used the basic encoding rules of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1), with capabilities such as converting an EBCDIC-coded text file to an ASCII-coded file, or serialization of objects and other data structures from and to XML. 88
    • 89. Layer 7: Application layer The application layer is the OSI layer closest to the end user, which means that both the OSI application layer and the user interact directly with the software application. This layer interacts with software applications that implement a communicating component. Such application programs fall outside the scope of the OSI model. Application-layer functions typically include identifying communication partners, determining resource availability, and synchronizing communication. When identifying communication partners, the application layer determines the identity and availability of communication partners for an application with data to transmit. When determining resource availability, the application layer must decide whether sufficient network or the requested communication exist. In synchronizing communication, all communication between applications requires cooperation that is managed by the application layer. 89
    • 90. Comparison with TCP/IP Model In the TCP/IP model of the Internet, protocols are deliberately not as rigidly designed into strict layers as in the OSI model. [10] RFC 3439 contains a section entitled "Layering considered harmful (section link here )." However, TCP/IP does recognize four broad layers of functionality which are derived from the operating scope of their contained protocols, namely the scope of the software application, the end-to-end transport connection, the internetworking range, and the scope of the direct links to other nodes on the local network. Even though the concept is different from the OSI model, these layers are nevertheless often compared with the OSI layering scheme in the following way: The Internet application layer includes the OSI application layer, presentation layer, and most of the session layer. Its end-to-end transport layer includes the graceful close function of the OSI session layer as well as the OSI transport layer. 90
    • 91. The internetworking layer (Internet layer) is a subset of the OSI network layer (see above), while the link layer includes the OSI data link and physical layers, as well as parts of OSI's network layer. These comparisons are based on the original seven-layer protocol model as defined in ISO 7498, rather than refinements in such things as the internal organization of the network layer document. The presumably strict peer layering of the OSI model as it is usually described does not present contradictions in TCP/IP, as it is permissible that protocol usage does not follow the hierarchy implied in a layered model. Such examples exist in some routing protocols (e.g., OSPF), or in the description of tunneling protocols, which provide a link layer for an application, although the tunnel host protocol may well be a transport or even an application layer protocol in its own right. 91

    • 96. The Internet Protocol Suite and the OSI Reference Model 96
    • 97. TCP The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is one of the core protocols of the Internet Protocol Suite. TCP is one of the two original components of the suite, complementing the Internet Protocol (IP), and therefore the entire suite is commonly referred to as TCP/IP. TCP provides reliable, ordered delivery of a stream of bytes from a program on one computer to another program on another computer. TCP is the protocol used by major Internet applications such as the World Wide Web, email, remote administration and file transfer. Other applications, which do not require reliable data stream service, may use the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), which provides datagram service that emphasizes reduced latency over reliability. 97
    • 98. User Datagram Protocol The User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is one of the core members of the Internet Protocol Suite, the set of network protocols used for the Internet. With UDP, computer applications can send messages, in this case referred to as datagram, to other hosts on an Internet Protocol (IP) network without requiring prior communications to set up special transmission channels or data paths. The protocol was designed by David P. Reed in 1980 and formally defined in RFC 768 . UDP uses a simple transmission model without implicit handshaking dialogues for providing reliability, ordering, or data integrity. Thus, UDP provides an unreliable service and datagram may arrive out of order, appear duplicated, or go missing without notice. UDP assumes that error checking and correction is either not necessary or performed in the application, avoiding the overhead of such processing at the network interface level. Time-sensitive applications often use UDP because dropping packets is preferable to waiting for delayed packets, which may not be an option in a real-time system. 98
    • 99. Internet Control Message Protocol The Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is one of the core protocols of the Internet Protocol Suite. It is chiefly used by the operating systems of networked computers to send error messages indicating, for example, that a requested service is not available or that a host or router could not be reached. ICMP can also be used to relay query messages. It is assigned protocol number 1. ICMP differs from transport protocols such as TCP and UDP in that it is not typically used to exchange data between systems, nor is it regularly employed by end-user network applications (with the exception of some diagnostic tools like ping and trace route). ICMP for Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) is also known as ICMPv4. IPv6 has a similar protocol, ICMPv6. 99
    • 100. Hypertext Transfer Protocol Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. HTTP is the foundation of data communication for the World Wide Web. Hypertext is a multi-linear set of objects, building a network by using logical links (the so-called hyperlinks) between the nodes (e.g. text or words). HTTP is the protocol to exchange or transfer hypertext. The standards development of HTTP was coordinated by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), culminating in the publication of a series of Requests for Comments (RFCs), most notably RFC 2616 (June 1999), which defines HTTP/1.1, the version of HTTP in common use. 100
    • 101. Post Office Protocol In computing, the Post Office Protocol (POP) is an applicationlayer Internet standard protocol used by locale-mail clients to retrieve email from a remote server over a TCP/IP connection. POP and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for e-mail retrieval. Virtually all modern e-mail clients and servers support both. The POP protocol has been developed through several versions, with version 3 (POP3) being the current standard. Most webmail service providers such as Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo! Mail also provide IMAP and POP3 service. 101
    • 102. File Protocol Transfer File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used to transfer files from one host to another host over a TCP-based network, such as the Internet. It is often used to upload web pages and other documents from a private development machine to a public web-hosting server. FTP is built on a client-server architecture and uses separate control and data connections between the client and the server. FTP users may authenticate themselves using a clear-text sign-in protocol, normally in the form of a username and password, but can connect anonymously if the server is configured to allow it. For secure transmission that hides (encrypts) the username and password, and encrypts the content, SSH File Transfer Protocol may be used. 102
    • 103. Internet Message Control Protocol Internet message access protocol (IMAP) is one of the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for email retrieval, the other being the Post Office Protocol (POP). Virtually all modern e-mail clients and mail servers support both protocols as a means of transferring e-mail messages from a server. The Internet Message Access Protocol (commonly known as IMAP) is an Application Layer Internet protocol that allows a client to access email on a remote mail server. The current version, IMAP version 4 revision 1 (IMAP4rev1), is defined by RFC 3501. An IMAP server typically listens on well-known port 143. IMAP over SSL (IMAPS) is assigned well-known port number 993. 103
    • 104. IPX/SP X IPX/SPX is a routable protocol and can be used for small and large networks. It was created by Novell primarily for Novell NetWare networks, but is popular enough that it is used on products that are not from Novell. •NCP - NetWare Core Protocol provides for client/server interactions such as file and print sharing. It works at the application, presentation, and session levels. •SAP - Service Advertising Protocol packets are used by file and print servers to periodically advertise the address of the server and the services available. It works at the application, presentation, and session levels. 104

    • 107. NetBIOS NetBIOS is an acronym for Network Basic Input/Output System. It provides services related to the session layer of the OSI model allowing applications on separate computers to communicate over a local area network. As strictly an API, NetBIOS is not a networking protocol. Older operating systems ran NetBIOS over IEEE 802.2 and IPX/SPX using the NetBIOS Frames (NBF) and NetBIOS (NBX) protocols, respectively. In modern networks, NetBIOS normally runs over TCP/IP via the NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NBT) protocol. This results in each computer in the network having both an IP address and a NetBIOS name corresponding to a (possibly different) host name. 107
    • 108. NetBEUI (NetBIOS Extended User Interface NetBEUI (NetBIOS Extended User Interface) is a new, extended version of NetBIOS, the program that lets computers communicate within a local area network. NetBEUI formalizes the frame format (or arrangement of information in a data transmission) that was not specified as part of NetBIOS. NetBEUI was developed by IBM for its LAN Manager product and has been adopted by Microsoft for its Windows NT, LAN Manager, and Windows for Workgroups products. Hewlett-Packard and DEC use it in comparable products. NetBEUI is the best performance choice for communication within a single LAN. Because, like NetBIOS, it does not support the routing of messages to other networks, its interface must be adapted to other protocols such as Internetwork Packet Exchange or TCP/IP. A recommended method is to install both NetBEUI and TCP/IP in each computer and set the server up to use NetBEUI for communication within the LAN and TCP/IP for communication beyond the LAN. 108
    • 109. Difference between NetBIOS & NetBEUI NetBIOS (Network Basic Input/Output System) isn't a network protocol. It's an API (applications programming interface) for File and Printer Sharing. NetBIOS names identify computers on the network. NetBIOS broadcasts locate computers and shared disks and folders on the network and allow them to appear in My Network Places and Network Neighborhood. NetBEUI (NetBIOS Extended User Interface) is a network protocol, like TCP/IP and IPX/SPX. All three protocols support file and printer sharing using the NetBIOS API. Nothing in Windows networking requires the NetBEUI protocol. All network functions are available using the TCP/IP and/or NW Link IPX/SPX protocols. NetBEUI is available as an un-supported protocol in Windows XP. 109
    • 110. Apple Talk AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of networking protocols developed by Apple Inc. for their Mac computers. AppleTalk included a number of features that allowed local area networks to be connected with no prior setup or the need for a centralized router or server of any sort. Simply connecting together AppleTalk equipped systems would automatically assign addresses, update the distributed namespace, and configure any required inter-networking routing. It was a true plug-n-play system. AppleTalk was released for the original Macintosh in 1985, and was the primary protocol used by Apple machinery through the 1980s and 90s. Versions were also released for the IBM PC and compatibles, and the Apple IIGS. AppleTalk support was also available in most networked printers (especially laser printers), some file servers and a number of routers. Through this period, AppleTalk was, by far, the most popular networking system in the world. 110
    • 111. Apple Talk..Continued The rise of TCP/IP during the 1990s led to a re-implementation of most of these types of support on that protocol, and AppleTalk became unsupported as of the release of Mac OS X v10.6 in 2009. Many of AppleTalk's more advanced auto-configuration features have since been introduced in Bonjour. 111

    • 135. IP Routing When we want to connect two or more networks using different n/w addresses then we have to use IP Routing technique. The router will be used to perform routing between the networks. A router will perform following functions for routing.  Path determination  Packet forwarding  Path determination The process of obtaining path in routing table is called path determination. There are three different methods to which router can learn path.  Automatic detection of directly connected n/w.  Static & Default routing  Dynamic routing 136

    • 140. Static Routing In this routing, we have to use IP route commands through which we can specify routes for different networks. The administrator will analyze whole internetwork topology and then specify the route for each n/w that is not directly connected to the router. Steps to perform static routing Create a list of all n/w present in internetwork. Remove the n/w address from list, which is directly connected to n/w. Specify each route for each routing n/w by using IP route command. Router(config)#ip route <destination n/w> <mask> <next hop ip> Next hop IP it is the IP address of neighbor router that is directly connected our router. 141
    • 141. Advantages of static routing (1) Fast and efficient. (2) More control over selected path. (3) Less overhead for router. (4) Bandwidth of interfaces is not consumed in routing updates. Disadvantages of static routing (1) More overheads on administrator. (2) Load balancing is not easily possible. (3) In case of topology change routing table has to be change manually. 142

    • 146. Dynamic Routing In dynamic routing, we will enable a routing protocol on router. This protocol will send its routing information to the neighbor router. The neighbors will analyze the information and write new routes to the routing table. The routers will pass routing information receive from one router to other router also. If there are more than one path available then routes are compared and best path is selected. Some examples of dynamic protocol are: RIP, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF Types of Dynamic Routing Protocols According to the working there are two types of Dynamic Routing Protocols. (1) Distance Vector (2) Link State 147
    • 147. Dynamic Routing According to the type of area in which protocol is used there are again two types of protocol: (1) Interior Routing Protocol (2) Exterior Routing Protocol Interior Routing Exterior Routing RIP BGP IGRP EXEIGRP EIGRP OSPF 148
    • 148. Distance Vector Routing The Routing, which is based on two parameters, that is distance and direction is called Distance Vector Routing. The example of Distance Vector Routing is RIP & IGRP. Operation: (1) Each Router will send its directly connected information to the neighbor router. This information is send periodically to the neighbors. (2) The neighbor will receive routing updates and process the route according to following conditions:  If update of a new n/w is received then this information is stored in routing table.  If update of a route is received which is already present in routing table then route will be refresh that is route times is reset to zero. 149
    • 149. Distance Vector Routing  If update is received for a route with lower metric then the route, which is already present in our routing table. The router will discard old route and write the new route in the routing table.  If update is received with higher metric then the route that is already present in routing table, in this case the new update will be discard.  A timer is associated with each route. The router will forward routing information on all interfaces and entire routing table is send to the neighbor. There are three types of timers associated with a route.  Route update timer It is the time after which the router will send periodic update to the neighbor. 150
    • 150. Distance Vector Routing  Route invalid timer It is the time after which the route is declared invalid, if there are no updates for the route. Invalid route are not forwarded to neighbor routers but it is still used to forward the traffic.  Route flush timer It is the time after which route is removed from the routing table, if there are no updates about the router. 151
    • 151. Metric of Dynamic Routing  Metric are the measuring unit to calculate the distance of destination n/w. A protocol may use a one or more than one at a time to calculate the distance. Different types of metric are:  Hop Count  Band Width  Load  Reliability  Delay  MTU 152
    • 152. Hop Count It is the no. of Hops (Routers) a packet has to travel for a destination n/w. Bandwidth Bandwidth is the speed of link. The path with higher bandwidth is preferred to send the data. Load Load is the amount of traffic present in the interface. Paths with lower load and high throughput are used to send data. Reliability Reliability is up time of interface over a period of time. Delay Delay is the time period b/w a packet is sent and received by the destination 153
    • 153. MTU Maximum Transmission Unit It is the maximum size of packet that can be sent in a frame mostly MTU is set to 1500. Problems of Distance Vector There are two main problems of distance vector routing •Bandwidth Consumption •Routing Loops Bandwidth Consumption The problem of accessive bandwidth consumption is solved out with the help of autonomous system. It exchanges b/w different routers. We can also perform route summarization to reduce the traffic. 154
    • 154. Routing Loops It may occur b/w adjacent routers due to wrong routing information. Distance Vector routing is also called routing by Rumor. Due to this the packet may enter in the loop condition until their TTL is expired. Method to solve routing loops There are five different methods to solve or reduce the problem of routing loop. Maximum Hop Count Flash Updates/Triggered Updates Split Horizon Poison Reverse Hold Down 155
    • 155. Maximum Hop Count This method limits the maximum no. of hops a packet can travel. This method does not solve loop problem. But it reduce the loop size in the n/w. Due to this method the end to end size of a n/w is also limited. Flash Updates/Triggered Updates In this method a partial update is send to the all neighbors as soon as there is topology change. The router, which receives flash updates, will also send the flash updates to the neighbor routers. Split Horizon Split Horizon states a route that update receive from an interface can not be send back to same interface. 156
    • 156. Poison Reverse This method is the combination of split Horizon and Flash updates. It implements the rule that information received from the interface can not be sent back to the interface and in case of topology change flash updates will be send to the neighbor. Hold Down If a route changes frequently then the route is declared in Hold Down state and no updates are received until the Hold Down timer expires. 157

Dynamic Translation (IP Masquerading )  Also called Network Address and Port Translation (NAPT)  Individual hosts inside the Firewall are identified based on of each connection flowing through the firewall  Since a connection doesn’t exist until an internal host requests a connection through the firewall to an external host, and most Firewalls only open ports only for the addressed host only that host can route back into the internal network  IP Source routing could route back in; but, most Firewalls block incoming source routed packets  NAT only prevents external hosts from making connections to internal hosts.  Some protocols won’t work; protocols that rely on separate connections back into the local network  Theoretical max of 216 connections, actual is much less 178
    • 178. Static Translation  Map a range of external address to the same size block of internal addresses  Firewall just does a simple translation of each address  Port forwarding - map a specific port to come through the Firewall rather than all ports; useful to expose a specific service on the internal network to the public network 179
    • 179. Load Balancing  A firewall that will dynamically map a request to a pool of identical clone machines  often done for really busy web sites  each clone must have a way to notify the Firewall of its current load so the Fire wall can choose a target machine  or the firewall just uses a dispatching algorithm like round robin  Only works for stateless protocols (like HTTP) 180

    • 193. Remote Access Service Remote Access Services (RAS) refers to any combination of hardware and software to enable the remote access tools or information that typically reside on a network of IT devices. A RAS server is a specialized computer which aggregates multiple communication channels together. Because these channels are bidirectional, two models emerge: Multiple entities connecting to a single resource, and a single entity connecting to multiple resources. Both of these models are widely used. Both physical and virtual resources can be provided through a RAS server: centralized computing can provide multiple users access to a remote virtual operating system. Access Providers often use RAS servers to terminate physical connections to their customers, for example customers who get Internet through some form of modem. Originally coined by Microsoft when referring to their built-in NT remote access tools, RAS was a service provided by Windows NT which allows most of the services which would be available on a network to be accessed over a modem link. 194
    • 194. The service includes support for dialup and logon, presents the same network interface as the normal network drivers (albeit slightly slower). It is not necessary to run Windows NT on the client - there are client versions for other Windows operating systems. A feature built into Windows NT enables users to log into an NTbased LAN using a modem, X.25 connection or WAN link. RAS works with several major network protocols, including TCP/IP, IPX, and NBF. To use RAS from a remote node, you need a RAS client program, which is built into most versions of Windows, or any PPP client software. For example, most remote control programs work with RAS. Starting in the mid-1990s, several manufacturers such as U.S. Robotics produced "modem terminal servers". Instead of having RS232ports, these would directly incorporate an analog modem. These devices were commonly used by Internet service providers to allow consumer dialup. Modern versions interface to an ISDN PRI instead of having analog modem ports. 195

    • 198. Media Access Methods An access method is a set of rules governing how the network nodes share the transmission medium. The rules for sharing among computers are similar to the rules for sharing among humans in that they both boil down to a pair of fundamental philosophies:  first come, first served and  take turns. These philosophies are the principles defining the three most important types of media access methods: 199
    • 199. Media Access Methods Contention. -(CSMA/CD Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection,  -CSMA/CA Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance)  Token passing.  Demand Priority. 200
    • 200. Contention CSMA/CD Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection IEEE 802.3 Ethernet LANs use the Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision detection(CSMA/CD) protocol to detect and handle collisions on the network. However, WLANs can’t use CSMA/CD because they can’t transmit and listen at the same time. CSMA/CA Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance The IEEE 802.11b standard specifies the carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) protocol for WLANs. CSMA/CA tries to avoid collisions by using explicit packet acknowledgment. With CSMA/CA, an acknowledgment packet is sent by the receiving station to confirm it has received a data packet. If the transmitting station does not receive the acknowledgment, it assumes that a collision has occurred and transmits the data packet again. 201
    • 201. Token passing IEEE 802.5 standard deals with Token Ring networks Token passing is implemented on a token-ring network. IEEE 802.5 Token Ring networks use a token-passing media access method. A token is a special packet that gives permission to a device to transmit data on to the network. When a device receives a token and transmits a frame, the frame is forwarded around the ring by all attached devices. When the frame reaches its destination, it is copied and processed by the receiving device and placed back on the ring. Before placing the frame back on the ring, the receiving device sets frame-status bits to indicate that the frame was received. The frame circles the ring until it returns to the original transmitting device. 202
    • 202. Demand Priority Demand priority is an access method used with the new 100Mbps 100VG-AnyLAN standard. Although demand priority is officially considered a contention-based access method, demand priority is considerably different from the basic CSMA/CD Ethernet. In demand priority, network nodes are connected to hubs, and those hubs are connected to other hubs. Contention, therefore, occurs at the hub. (100VG-AnyLAN cables can actually send and receive data at the same time.) Demand priority provides a mechanism for prioritizing data types. If contention occurs, data with a higher priority takes precedence 203

(They “scale” well.) 208

(2) Cut through This switch starts forwarding frame as soon as first six bytes of the frame are received. (3) Fragment-free This switch receives 64 bytes of the frame, perform error checking and then start forwarding data. (4) Adaptive cut-through It changes its mode according the condition. If it see there are errors in many frames then it changes to Store & Forward mode from Cut through or Fragment-free. 227

    • 236. A security protocol (cryptographic protocol or encryption protocol) is an abstract or concrete protocol that performs a security-related function and applies cryptographic methods. A protocol describes how the algorithms should be used. A sufficiently detailed protocol includes details about data structures and representations, at which point it can be used to implement multiple, interoperable versions of a program. Cryptographic protocols are widely used for secure application-level data transport. A cryptographic protocol usually incorporates at least some of these aspects: Key agreement or establishment Entity authentication Symmetric encryption and message authentication material construction Secured application-level data transport Non-repudiation methods 237
    • 237. Internet Key Exchange Internet Key Exchange (IKE or IKEv2) is the protocol used to set up a security association (SA) in the IPSec protocol suite. IKE builds upon the Oakley protocol and ISAKMP. IKE uses X.509 certificates for authentication which are either pre-shared or distributed using DNS (preferably with DNSSEC), and a Diffie–Hellman key exchange to set up a shared session secret from which cryptographic keys are derived. In addition, a security policy for every peer which will connect must be manually maintained 238
    • 238. IPsec Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) is a protocol suite for securing Internet Protocol (IP) communications by authenticating andencrypting each IP packet of a communication session. IPsec also includes protocols for establishing mutual authentication between agents at the beginning of the session and negotiation of cryptographic keys to be used during the session. IPsec is an end-to-end security scheme operating in the Internet Layer of the Internet Protocol Suite. It can be used in protecting data flows between a pair of hosts (host-to-host), between a pair of security gateways (networkto-network), or between a security gateway and a host (network-to-host).[1] Some other Internet security systems in widespread use, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), Transport Layer Security (TLS) andSecure Shell (SSH), operate in the upper layers of the TCP/IP model. In the past, the use of TLS/SSL had to be designed into an application to protect the application protocols. In contrast, since day one, applications did not need to be specifically designed to use IPsec. 239
    • 239. Hence, IPsec protects any application traffic across an IP network. This holds true now for SSL as well with the rise of SSL based VPN revolution with implementations like OpenVPN. IPsec originally was developed at the Naval Research Laboratory as part of a DARPA-sponsored research project. ESP was derived directly from the SP3D protocol, rather than being derived from the ISO Network-Layer Security Protocol (NLSP). The SP3D protocol specification was published by NIST, but designed by the Secure Data Network System project of the National Security Agency (NSA), IPsec AH is derived in part from previous IETF standards work for authentication of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). IPsec is officially specified by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in a series of Request for Comments documents addressing various components and extensions. It specifies the spelling of the protocol name to be IPsec 240
    • 240. Kerberos (protocol) Kerberos is a computer network authentication protocol which works on the basis of "tickets" to allow nodes communicating over a non-secure network to prove their identity to one another in a secure manner. Its designers aimed primarily at a client–server model, and it provides mutual authentication—both the user and the server verify each other's identity. Kerberos protocol messages are protected against eavesdropping and replay attacks. Kerberos builds on symmetric key cryptography and requires a trusted third party, and optionally may use public-key cryptography by utilizing asymmetric key cryptography during certain phases of authentication. Kerberos uses port 88 by default. "Kerberos" also refers to a suite of free software published by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that implements the Kerberos protocol. 241
    • 241. Point-to-point protocol In networking, the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) is a data link protocol commonly used in establishing a direct connection between two networking nodes. It can provide connection authentication, transmission encryption (using ECP, RFC 1968), and compression. PPP is used over many types of physical networks including serial cable, phone line, trunk line, cellular telephone, specialized radio links, and fiber optic links such as SONET. PPP is also used over Internet access connections (now marketed as "broadband"). Internet service providers (ISPs) have used PPP for customer dial-up access to the Internet, since IP packets cannot be transmitted over a modem line on their own, without some data link protocol. Two encapsulated forms of PPP, Point-toPoint Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) and Point-to-Point Protocol over ATM (PPPoA), are used most commonly by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to establish a Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) Internet service connection with customers. 242
    • 242. PPP is commonly used as a data link layer protocol for connection over synchronous and asynchronous circuits, where it has largely superseded the older Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) and telephone company mandated standards (such as Link Access Protocol, Balanced (LAPB) in the X.25 protocol suite). PPP was designed to work with numerous network layer protocols, including Internet Protocol (IP), TRILL, Novell's Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX), NBF and AppleTalk. 243
    • 243. Transport Layer Security Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols that provide communication security over the Internet. TLS and SSL encrypt the segments of network connections at the Application Layer for the Transport Layer, using asymmetric cryptography for key exchange, symmetric encryption for privacy, and message authentication codes for message integrity. Several versions of the protocols are in widespread use in applications such as web browsing, electronic mail, Internet faxing, instant messaging and voice-over-IP (VoIP). TLS is an IETF standards track protocol, last updated in RFC 5246, and is based on the earlier SSL specifications developed by Netscape Communications. 244
    • 244. Wireless Technology Wireless telecommunications is the transfer of information between two or more points that are not physically connected. Distances can be short, such as a few meters for television remote control, or as far as thousands or even millions of kilometers for deep-space radio communications. It encompasses various types of fixed, mobile, and portable two-way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless networking. Other examples of wireless technology include GPS units, Garage door openers or garage doors, wireless computer mice, keyboards and Headset (audio), headphones, radio receivers,satellite television, broadcast television and cordless telephones. 245
    • 245. Infrared Infrared (IR) light is electromagnetic radiation with longer wavelengths than those of visible light, extending from the nominal red edge of the visible spectrum at 0.74 micrometers (µm) to 300 µm. This range of wavelengths corresponds to a frequency range of approximately 1 to 400 THz, and includes most of the thermal radiation emitted by objects near room temperature. Infrared light is emitted or absorbed by molecules when they change their rotationalvibrational movements. Much of the energy from the Sun arrives on Earth in the form of infrared radiation. Sunlight at zenith provides an irradiance of just over 1 kilowatt per square meter at sea level. Of this energy, 527 watts is infrared radiation, 445 watts is visible light, and 32 watts is ultraviolet radiation. The balance between absorbed and emitted infrared radiation has a critical effect on the Earth's climate. 246
    • 246. Infrared light is used in industrial, scientific, and medical applications. Night-vision devices using infrared illumination allow people or animals to be observed without the observer being detected. In astronomy, imaging at infrared wavelengths allows observation of objects obscured by interstellar dust. Infrared imaging cameras are used to detect heat loss in insulated systems, observe changing blood flow in the skin, and overheating of electrical apparatus. 247

    • 254. Factors Affecting Wireless Signals Because wireless signals travel through the atmosphere, they are susceptible to different types of interference than standard wired networks. Interference Types The following are some factors that cause interference: Physical objects: Trees, masonry, buildings, and other physical structures are some of the most common sources of interference. The density of the materials used in a building’s construction determines the number of walls the RF signal can pass through and still maintain adequate coverage. Concrete and steel walls are particularly difficult for a signal to pass through. These structures will weaken or at times completely prevent wireless signals. 255
    • 255. Radio frequency interference: Wireless technologies such as 802.11b/g use an RF range of 2.4GHz, and so do many other devices, such as cordless phones, microwaves, and so on. Devices that share the channel can cause noise and weaken the signals. Electrical interference: Electrical interference comes from devices such as computers, refrigerators, fans, lighting fixtures, or any other motorized devices. The impact that electrical interference has on the signal depends on the proximity of the electrical device to the wireless access point. Advances in wireless technologies and in electrical devices have reduced the impact that these types of devices have on wireless transmissions. Environmental factors: Weather conditions can have a huge impact on wireless signal integrity. Lightning, for example, can cause electrical interference, and fog can weaken signals as they pass through. 256
    • 256. How to Install a Wireless Router to Share DSL Internet It makes no difference to a router whether your Internet arrives through DSL or cable; it will work just the same. By installing a wireless router, you can easily share your Internet connection among multiple computers and enjoy connectivity without the constraints of cables or wires.  257
    • 257. Step 1 Attach the incoming DSL cable to the "Input," "Cable" or "DSL" port on your DSL modem. Step 2 Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your DSL modem and plug the other end of the cable into the "Internet," "WLAN" or "WAN" port on your wireless router. Step 3 Plug one end of the Ethernet cable supplied with your wireless router into one of the output ports on the router. Plug the other end of the cable into the Ethernet port on your computer. Step 4 Connect your DSL modem and router to a power source. 258
    • 258. Step 5 Open a browser and type the router's IP address, which likely will be either "" or "" Enter the username, which is frequently "admin." Enter the password, which may be set to "admin", "password" or blank as the default. Set up the router according to the instructions provided with the router. The product documentation will also provide the IP address and username/password. During setup, the most important things you should do are change the SSID network name, configure encryption and change the router password. Step 6 Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer, if you prefer to connect wirelessly. Step 7 Click the wireless icon, located by the system clock on your Windows 7 PC. Click the router name that corresponds to the SSID you entered during setup. Click "Connect" and enter the password to connect to the router. Repeat for each computer requiring access. 259
    • 259. Configuring a Wireless Access Point When you access the configuration page of your wireless access point on the Internet, you have the following configuration options that are related to the wireless access point functions of the device. Although these options are specific to this particular device, most access points have similar configuration options. Enable/Disable: Enables or disables the device's wireless access point functions. SSID: The Service Set Identifier used to identify the network. Most access points have well-known defaults. You can talk yourself into thinking that your network is more secure by changing the SSID from the default to something more obscure, but in reality, that only protects you from firstgrade hackers. By the time most hackers get into the second grade, they learn that even the most obscure SSID is easy to get around. 260
    • 260. Allow broadcast SSID to associate? Disables the access point's periodic broadcast of the SSID. Normally, the access point regularly broadcasts its SSID so that wireless devices that come within range can detect the network and join in. For a more secure network, you can disable this function. Then, a wireless client must already know the network's SSID in order to join the network. Channel: Lets you select one of 11 channels on which to broadcast. All the access points and computers in the wireless network should use the same channel. If you find that your network is frequently losing connections, try switching to another channel. You may be experiencing interference from a cordless phone or other wireless device operating on the same channel. WEP — Mandatory or Disable: Lets you use a security protocol called wired equivalent privacy. 261
    • 261. Troubleshooting Wireless Network Connections Check the wires and wireless network adapter Checking that all your wires are plugged in at the router and from the plug is one of the first things you should do – provided of course that you have access to them. Verify that the power cord is connected and that all the lights of the router and cable/DSL modem are on. This may seem like a ridiculous suggestion but you should never disregard the obvious. You’d be surprised at how your configuration can be perfect, and after a while of playing around with settings you realize that the network cable leading from the router to the cable modem has come undone slightly. 262
    • 262. Driver Compatibility It is important to make sure that you have installed the correct device driver for your wireless network adapter. This can cause all sorts of problems or your adapter not to function at all. A friend of mine recently set up his own wireless network at home but complained to me that his wireless network connection was going “crazy”. Upon inspection I realized that he had configured his router properly but installed the 5v instead of the 3v driver on his laptop PCMCIA network card. Once the correct driver was installed, everything began to run smoothly. It just goes to show how even the smallest detail can make all the difference so make sure you have the correct driver installed! 263
    • 263. Low Signal Strength There are a number of factors that can cause the signal of your access point to deteriorate and the performance of your network to fall under par. Practically any appliance that operates on the same frequency level (2.4 GHz) as 802.11b or 802.11g can cause interference with your wireless network. Be sure to keep cordless phones, microwaves and other electrical equipment at least 1m away from the access point. Try changing channels on the access point and test it out on one of the clients. To change the radio channel on the access point login to the configuration (usually a web based interface) and go to the Wireless Settings (will vary depending on vendor) section, select a different channel and save settings. On the client, go to Device Manager, right click your wireless network adapter and go to Properties. 264
    • 264. In the advanced tab select the Channel Property and change the Value to the same number as the one you chose on the Access Point. Disable and then re-enable the wireless connection. 265
    • 265. Access Point Location You may also want to try changing the position of your access point antenna to improve performance. Play around with its position and see if you notice a difference. I find that if I point the antenna sideways or downwards I have better reception on the floor below. The following images demonstrate what I mean. Antenna pointing upwards (default) Antenna pointing sideways 266
    • 266. Access Point Location The location of your access point is vital. Try and place it in a central location, as much as possible avoiding physical obstructions and reflective surfaces. Remember that wireless signals bounce of windows and mirrors, thus decreasing the range. Experiment with different locations until you find one that is practical and promising. Most people, including myself, like placing it near the ceiling since most obstructions are nearer to the floor. It’s always a good idea to monitor the performance of your signal by using a diagnostic utility. This will help you to identify how strong your signal is in different locations and whether other electrical equipment is interfering. Run the utility when the microwave or cordless phone is in use and see if you notice a difference. Usually your access point will come with its own monitoring utility. 267

    • 269. SKILLS FOR INDIA Proxy Server
    • 270. Proxy Server In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource available from a different server. The proxy server evaluates the request as a way to simplify and control their complexity. Today, most proxies are web proxies, facilitating access to content on the World Wide Web. 271
    • 271. Utility of a Proxy server To keep machines behind it anonymous, mainly for security To speed up access to resources (using caching). Web proxies are commonly used to cache web pages from a web server To apply access policy to network services or content, e.g. to block undesired sites To access sites prohibited or filtered by your ISP or institution To log / audit usage, i.e. to provide company employee Internet usage reporting To bypass security / parental controls To circumvent Internet filtering to access content otherwise blocked by government To scan transmitted content for malware before delivery To scan outbound content, e.g., for data loss prevention To allow a web site to make web requests to externally hosted resources (e.g. images, music files, etc.) when cross-domain restrictions prohibit the 272 web site from linking directly to the outside domains
    • 272. Types of proxy Forward proxies Open proxies Reverse proxies 273
    • 273. Forward proxies Forward proxies are proxies where the client server names the target server to connect to. Forward proxies are able to retrieve from a wide range of sources (in most cases anywhere on the Internet). The terms "forward proxy" and "forwarding proxy" are a general description of behavior (forwarding traffic) and thus ambiguous. Except for Reverse proxy, the types of proxies described in this article are more specialized subtypes of the general forward proxy concept. 274
    • 274. Open proxies An open proxy is a forwarding proxy server that is accessible by any Internet user. Gordon Lyon estimates there are "hundreds of thousands" of open proxies on the Internet. An anonymous open proxy allows users to conceal their IP address while browsing the Web or using other Internet services. There are varying degrees of anonymity however, as well as a number of methods of 'tricking' the client into revealing itself regardless of the proxy being used. 275
    • 275. Reverse proxies A reverse proxy (or surrogate) is a proxy server that appears to clients to be an ordinary server. Requests are forwarded to one or more origin servers which handle the request. The response is returned as if it came directly from the proxy server. Reverse proxies are installed in the neighborhood of one or more web servers. All traffic coming from the Internet and with a destination of one of the neighborhood's web servers goes through the proxy server. The use of "reverse" originates in its counterpart "forward proxy" since the reverse proxy sits closer to the web server and serves only a restricted set of websites. 276
    • 276. Issues with Proxy Server The diversion / interception of a TCP connection creates several issues. Firstly the original destination IP and port must somehow be communicated to the proxy. This is not always possible (e.g. where the gateway and proxy reside on different hosts). There is a class of cross site attacks that depend on certain behavior of intercepting proxies that do not check or have access to information about the original (intercepted) destination. This problem can be resolved by using an integrated packet-level and application level appliance or software which is then able to communicate this information between the packet handler and the proxy. Intercepting also creates problems for HTTP authentication, especially connection-oriented authentication such as NTLM, since the client browser believes it is talking to a server rather than a proxy. This can cause problems where an intercepting proxy requires authentication, then the user connects to a site which also requires authentication. 277
    • 277. Issues with Proxy Server Finally intercepting connections can cause problems for HTTP caches, since some requests and responses become un cacheable by a shared cache. Therefore intercepting connections is generally discouraged. However due to the simplicity of deploying such systems, they are in widespread use. 278

    • 280. SKILLS FOR INDIA Virtual LAN
    • 281. A virtual local area network, virtual LAN or VLAN, is a group of hosts with a common set of requirements, which communicate as if they were attached to the same broadcast domain, regardless of their physical location. A VLAN has the same attributes as a physical local area network (LAN), but it allows for end stations to be grouped together even if not on the same network switch. VLAN membership can be configured through software instead of physically relocating devices or connections. To physically replicate the functions of a VLAN would require a separate, parallel collection of network cables and equipment separate from the primary network. However, unlike a physically separate network, VLANs must share bandwidth; two separate one-gigabit VLANs that share a single one-gigabit interconnection can suffer reduced throughput and congestion. It virtualizes VLAN behaviors (configuring switch ports, tagging frames when entering VLAN, lookup MAC table to switch/flood frames to trunk links, and un tagging when exit from VLAN.) 282
    • 282. Types Of VLANs Today there is essentially one way of implementing VLANs - port-based VLANs. A port-based VLAN is associated with a port called an access VLAN. However in the network there are a number of terms for VLANs. Some terms define the type of network traffic they carry and others define a specific function a VLAN performs. The following describes common VLAN terminology: Data VLAN Default VLAN Native VLAN Management VLAN Voice VLANs 283
    • 283. Utility of VPN VLANs are created to provide the segmentation services traditionally provided by routers in LAN configurations. VLANs address issues such as scalability, security, and network management. Routers in VLAN topologies provide broadcast filtering, security, address summarization, and traffic flow management. By definition, switches may not bridge IP traffic between VLANs as it would violate the integrity of the VLAN broadcast domain. This is also useful if someone wants to create multiple layer 3 networks on the same layer 2 switch. For example, if a DHCP server is plugged into a switch it will serve any host on that switch that is configured to get its IP from a DHCP server. By using VLANs you can easily split the network up so some hosts won't use that DHCP server and will obtain link-local addresses, or obtain an address from a different DHCP server. 284
    • 284. Advantages of VLAN The main advantages of VLAN are listed below. Broadcast Control: Broadcasts are required for the normal function of a network. Many protocols and applications depend on broadcast communication to function properly. A layer 2switched network is in a single broadcast domain and the broadcasts can reach the network segments which are so far where a particular broadcast has no scope and consume available network bandwidth. A layer 3 device (typically a router) is used to segment a broadcast domain. If we segment a large LAN to smaller VLANs we can reduce broadcast traffic as each broadcast will be sent on to the relevant VLAN only 285
    • 285. Security: VLANs provide enhanced network security. In a VLAN network environment, with multiple broadcast domains, network administrators have control over each port and user. A malicious user can no longer just plug their workstation into any switch port and sniff the network traffic using a packet sniffer. The network administrator controls each port and whatever resources it is allowed to use. VLANs help to restrict sensitive traffic originating from an enterprise department within itself. Cost: Segmenting a large VLAN to smaller VLANs is cheaper than creating a routed network with routers because normally routers costlier than switches Physical Layer Transparency: VLANs are transparent on the physical topology and medium over which the network is connected 286
    • 286. VLAN provides Virtual Segmentation of Broadcast Domain in the network. The devices, which are member of same Vlan, are able to communicate with each other. The devices of different Vlan may communicate with each other with routing. So that different Vlan devices will use different n/w addresses. Vlan provides following advantages: (1) Logical Segmentation of network (2) Enhance network security Creating port based Vlan In port based Vlan, first we have to create a Vlan on manageable switch then we have to add ports to the Vlan. 287
    • 287. Commands to create Vlan Switch#config ter Switch(config)#vlan <no> [name <word>] Switch(config)#exit optional Or Switch#vlan database Switch(vlan)#vlan <no> [name <word>] Switch(vlan)#exit 288

    • 290. Trunking To Display Vlan and port membership Switch#sh vlan When there are multiple switches then we have to use trunk links to connect one switch with other. If we are not using trunk links then we have to connect one cable from each vlan to the corresponding vlan of the other switch. Switches will perform trunking with the help of frame tagging. The trunk port will send data frames by adding a Vlan id information to the frame, at the receiving end vlan id information is removing from the end and according to the tag data is delivered to the corresponding vlan. There are two protocols to perform frame tagging. (1) Inter switch link (cisco prop) (2) IEEE 802.1 q 291
    • 291. Configuring Trunking In cisco switches all switch ports may be configured in three modes (1) Trunk desirable (default) (2) Trunk on (3) Trunk off Switch#conf ter Switch(config)#interface <type> <no> Switch(config-if)#switchport mode <trunk|access|auto> Switch(config-if)#exit on off desirable 292
    • 292. To configure Vlans allowed on Trunk By default all Vlans are allowed on Trunk port. We can add/remove a partucular Vlan from trunk port with following command Switch#config ter Switch(config)#interface <type> <no> Switch(config-if)#switchport trunk allowed vlan all Remove <vlan> Add <vlan> Except <vlan> To display trunk interfaces Switch#sh interface trunk Switch#sh interface <type> <no> trunk 293
    • 293. VLAN Trunking Protocol On Cisco Devices, VTP (VLAN Trunking Protocol) maintains VLAN configuration consistency across the entire network. VTP uses Layer 2 trunk frames to manage the addition, deletion, and renaming of VLANs on a network-wide basis from a centralized switch in the VTP server mode. VTP is responsible for synchronizing VLAN information within a VTP domain and reduces the need to configure the same VLAN information on each switch. VTP minimizes the possible configuration inconsistencies that arise when changes are made. These inconsistencies can result in security violations, because VLANs can cross connect when duplicate names are used. They also could become internally disconnected when they are mapped from one LAN type to another, for example, Ethernet to ATM LANE ELANs or FDDI 802.10 VLANs. VTP provides a mapping scheme that enables seamless trunking within a network employing mixed-media technologies. 294
    • 294. With the help of VTP, we can simplify the process of creating Vlan. In multiple switches, we can configure one switch as VTP server and all other switches will be configured as VTP client. We will create Vlans on VTP server switch. The server will send periodic updates to VTP client switches. The clients will create Vlans from the update received from the VTP server. VTP server VTP server is a switch in which we can create, delete or modify Vlans. The server will send periodic updates for VTP clients. VTP client On VTP client, we are not able to create, modify or delete Vlans. The client will receive and forward vtp updates. The client will create same Vlans as defined in vtp update. 295
    • 295. Transparent is a switch, which will receive and forward VTP update. It is able to create, delete and modify Vlans locally. A transparent will not send its own VTP updates and will not learn any information from received vtp update. Commands Switch#conf ter Switch(config)#vtp domain <name> Switch(config)#vtp password <word> Switch(config)#vtp mode <server|client|transparent> Switch(config)#exit By default in cisco switches the VTP mode is set as VTP server with no domain and no password. To display VTP status Switch#sh vtp status 296
    • 296. Inter Vlan Communication After creating Vlans, each Vlan has own broadcast domain. If we want communication from one Vlan to another Vlan then we need to perform routing. There are three methods for inter vlan communication. (1) Inter Vlan using multi-interface router (2) Inter Vlan using router on a stick method (3) Inter Vlan using layer 3 switch 1751, 2621 routers supports Vlan (1) Inter Vlan using multi-interface router In this case, we have to connect one interface of router in each Vlan. This interface will act as gateway for the corresponding vlan. Each Vlan has to use different n/w addresses. Data from one Vlan to another Vlan will travel by router. 297
    • 297. Inter Vlan Communication (2) Inter Vlan using router on a stick method In this method a special router is used for Inter Vlan. In this router, we can create one interface for each Vlan. The physical interface of router will be connected on trunk port switch. This router will route traffic on the same interface by swapping vlan id information with the help of frame tagging protocol. 298

Configuration on Core switch (1) Configure switch as VTP server (2) Create Vlans (3) Configure interface connected to router as Trunk (4) Configure interfaces connected to other switches as trunk (if required) Configuration on Distribution layer switches (1) Configure switch as VTP client (2) Configure required interface as Trunk (optional) (3) Add ports to Vlan Configuration on Pc Configure IP and Gateway 301
    • 301. VTP provides the following benefits: VLAN configuration consistency across the network Mapping scheme that allows a VLAN to be trunked over mixed media Accurate tracking and monitoring of VLANs Dynamic reporting of added VLANs across the network Plug-and-play configuration when adding new VLANs 302
    • 302. As beneficial as VTP can be, it does have disadvantages that are normally related to the spanning tree protocol (STP) as a bridging loop propagating throughout the network can occur. Cisco switches run an instance of STP for each VLAN, and since VTP propagates VLANs across the campus LAN, VTP effectively creates more opportunities for a bridging loop to occur. Before creating VLANs on the switch that will propagate via VTP, a VTP domain must first be set up. A VTP domain for a network is a set of all contiguously trunked switches with the same VTP domain name. All switches in the same management domain share their VLAN information with each other, and a switch can participate in only one VTP management domain. Switches in different domains do not share VTP information. Using VTP, each Catalyst Family Switch advertises the following on its trunk ports: Management domain Configuration revision number Known VLANs and their specific parameters 303

    • 305. SKILLS FOR INDIA Network Storage
    • 306. A network storage system maintains copies of digital data across highspeed local area network (LAN) connections. It is designed to back up files, databases and other data to a central location that can easily accessed via standard network protocols and tools. Importance of Network Storage Storage is an essential aspect of any computer. Hard drives and USB keys, for example, are designed to hold the data generated by individuals on their PCs, but when these types of local storage fail, the data is lost. Additionally, the process of sharing local data with other computers can be timeconsuming, and sometimes the amount of local storage available is insufficient to store everything desired. Network storage addresses these problems by providing a reliable, external data repository for all computers on the LAN to share efficiently. Besides freeing up local storage space, network storage systems also typically support automated backup programs to prevent critical data loss. 307
    • 307. Evolution in Storage Architecture 308
    • 308. Network-attached storage Network-accessed storage (NAS) is file-level computer data storage connected to a computer network providing data access to heterogeneous clients. NAS not only operates as a file server, but is specialized for this task either by its hardware, software, or configuration of those elements. NAS is often made as a computer appliance – a specialized computer built from the ground up for storing and serving files – rather than simply a general purpose computer being used for the role. As of 2010 NAS devices are gaining popularity, as a convenient method of sharing files among multiple computers. Potential benefits of networkattached storage, compared to file servers, include faster data access, easier administration, and simple configuration. NAS systems are networked appliances which contain one or more hard drives, often arranged into logical, redundant storage containers or RAID arrays. Network-attached storage removes the responsibility of file serving from other servers on the network. They typically provide access to files using network file sharing protocols such as NFS,SMB/CIFS, or AFP. 309

DNS  A lookup mechanism for translating objects into other objects  A globally distributed, loosely coherent, scalable, reliable, dynamic database  Comprised of three components • A “name space” • Servers making that name space available • Resolvers (clients) which query the servers about the name space 430
    • 430. DNS Features: Global Distribution  Data is maintained locally, but retrievable globally  No single computer has all DNS data  DNS lookups can be performed by any device  Remote DNS data is locally catchable to improve performance 431
    • 431. DNS Features: Loose Coherency  The database is always internally consistent  Each version of a subset of the database (a zone) has a serial number • The serial number is incremented on each database change  Changes to the master copy of the database are replicated according to timing set by the zone administrator  Cached data expires according to timeout set by zone administrator 432
    • 432. DNS Features: Scalability  No limit to the size of the database  One server has over 20,000,000 names • Not a particularly good idea  No limit to the number of queries  24,000 queries per second handled easily  Queries distributed among masters, slaves, and caches 433
    • 433. DNS Features: Reliability  Data is replicated  Data from master is copied to multiple slaves  Clients can query  Master server  Any of the copies at slave servers  Clients will typically query local caches  DNS protocols can use either UDP or TCP  If UDP, DNS protocol handles retransmission, sequencing, etc. 434
    • 434. DNS Features: Dynamicity  Database can be updated dynamically  Add/delete/modify of any record  Modification of the master database triggers replication  Only master can be dynamically updated • Creates a single point of failure 435

    • 449. DHCP Operation DCHP DISCOVER At this time, the DHCP client can start to use the IP address Renewing a Lease (sent when 50% of lease has expired) If DHCP server sends DHCPNACK, then address is released. 450
    • 450. DHCP Operation DCHP RELEASE At this time, the DHCP client has released the IP address 451
    • 451. Client Server Interactions  The client broadcasts a DHCPDISCOVER message on its local physical subnet  The DHCPDISCOVER message may include some options such as network address suggestion or lease duration  Each server may respond with a DHCPOFFER message that includes an available network address (your IP address) and other configuration options  The servers record the address as offered to the client to prevent the same address being offered to other clients in the event of further DHCPDISCOVER messages being received before the first client has completed its configuration 452
    • 452.  The client receives one or more DHCPOFFER messages from one or more servers  The client chooses one based on the configuration parameters offered and broadcasts a DHCPREQUEST message that includes the server identifier option to indicate which message it has selected and the requested IP address option, taken from your IP address in the selected offer  In the event that no offers are received, if the client has knowledge of a previous network address, the client may reuse that address if its lease is still valid, until the lease expires 453
    • 453.  The servers receive the DHCPREQUEST broadcast from the client  Those servers not selected by the DHCPREQUEST message use the message as notification that the client has declined that server's offer  The server selected in the DHCPREQUEST message commits the binding for the client to persistent storage and responds with a DHCPACK message containing the configuration parameters for the requesting client 454
    • 454. The combination of client hardware and assigned network address constitute a unique identifier for the client's lease and are used by both the client and server to identify a lease referred to in any DHCP messages. The your IP address field in the DHCPACK messages is filled in with the selected network address. The client receives the DHCPACK message with configuration parameters. The client performs a final check on the parameters, for example with ARP for allocated network address, and notes the duration of the lease and the lease identification cookie specified in the DHCPACK message. At this point, the client is configured.If the client detects a problem with the parameters in the DHCPACK message (the address is already in use on the network, for example), the client sends a DHCPDECLINE message to the server and restarts the configuration process. 455
    • 455. The client should wait a minimum of ten seconds before restarting the configuration process to avoid excessive network traffic in case of looping. On receipt of a DHCPDECLINE, the server must mark the offered address as unavailable (and possibly inform the system administrator that there is a configuration problem). If the client receives a DHCPNAK message, the client restarts the configuration process. The client may choose to relinquish its lease on a network address by sending a DHCPRELEASE message to the server. The client identifies the lease to be released by including its network address and its hardware address. 456
    • 456. DHCP Pros  It relieves the network administrator of a great deal of manual configuration work  The ability for a device to be moved from network to network and to automatically obtain valid configuration parameters for the current network can be of great benefit to mobile users  Because IP addresses are only allocated when clients are actually active, it is possible, by the use of reasonably short lease times and the fact that mobile clients do not need to be allocated more than one address, to reduce the total number of addresses in use in an organization 457
    • 457. DHCP Cons  Uses UDP, an unreliable and insecure protocol  DNS cannot be used for DHCP configured hosts 458

    • 461. Message transfer agent Within Internet message handling services (MHS), a message transfer agent or mail transfer agent (MTA) or mail relay is software that transfers electronic mail messages from one computer to another using a client–server application architecture. An MTA implements both the client (sending) and server (receiving) portions of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. The terms mail server, mail exchanger, and MX host may also refer to a computer performing the MTA function. The Domain Name System (DNS) associates a mail server to a domain with mail exchanger (MX) resource records containing the domain name of a host providing MTA services. A mail server is a computer that serves as an electronic post office for email. Mail exchanged across networks is passed between mail servers that run specially designed software. This software is built around agreed-upon, standardized protocols for handling mail messages and the graphics they might contain. 462
    • 462. Operation A message transfer agent receives mail from either another MTA, a mail submission agent (MSA), or a mail user agent (MUA). The transmission details are specified by the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). When a recipient mailbox of a message is not hosted locally, the message is relayed, that is, forwarded to another MTA. Every time an MTA receives an email message, it adds aReceived trace header field to the top of the header of the message,[4] thereby building a sequential record of MTAs handling the message. The process of choosing a target MTA for the next hop is also described in SMTP, but can usually be overridden by configuring the MTA software with specific routes. 463
    • 463. A MTA works in the background, while the user usually interacts directly with a mail user agent. One may distinguish initial submission as first passing through an MSA – port 587 is used for communication between an MUA and an MSA while port 25 is used for communication between MTAs, or from an MSA to an MTA, this distinction is first made in RFC 2476. For recipients hosted locally, the final delivery of email to a recipient mailbox is the task of a message delivery agent (MDA). For this purpose the MTA transfers the message to the message handling service component of the message delivery agent. Upon final delivery, the Return-Path field is added to the envelope to record the return path. 464

    • 469. Backup In information technology, a backup or the process of backing up is making copies of data which may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. The verb form is back up in two words, whereas the noun is backup. Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. Data loss can be a common experience of computer users. A 2008 survey found that 66% of respondents had lost files on their home PC. The secondary purpose of backups is to recover data from an earlier time, according to a userdefined data retention policy, typically configured within a backup application for how long copies of data are required. Though backups popularly represent a simple form of disaster recovery, and should be part of a disaster recovery plan, by themselves, backups should not alone be considered disaster recovery. 470
    • 470. Since a backup system contains at least one copy of all data worth saving, the data storage requirements are considerable. Organizing this storage space and managing the backup process is a complicated undertaking. A data repository model can be used to provide structure to the storage. In the modern era of computing there are many different types of data storage devices that are useful for making backups. There are also many different ways in which these devices can be arranged to provide geographic redundancy, data security, and portability. 471
    • 471. Types of Backup  There are five types of back up Normal Copy Incremental Differential Daily Backup 472
    • 472.  Selecting Backup Devices and Media  Many tools are available for backing up data. Some are fast and expensive. Others are slow but very reliable. The backup solution that's right for your organization depends on many factors, including  Capacity The amount of data that you need to back up on a routine basis. Can the backup hardware support the required load given your time and resource constraints?  Reliability The reliability of the backup hardware and media. Can you afford to sacrifice reliability to meet budget or time needs?  Extensibility The extensibility of the backup solution. Will this solution meet your needs as the organization grows?  Speed The speed with which data can be backed up and recovered. Can you afford to sacrifice speed to reduce costs?  Cost The cost of the backup solution. Does it fit into your budget? 473
    • 473. Recovering Data Using the Restore Wizard  Make sure that the backup set you want to work with is loaded into the library system, if possible.  Start Backup. In the Welcome tab, click Restore Wizard, and then click Next. 474
    • 474. Select the check box next to any drive, folder, or file that you want to restore. If the media set you want to work with isn't shown, click Import File, and then type the path to the catalog for the backup. To restore system state data, select the check box for System State as well as other data you want to restore. If you're restoring to the original location, the current system state will be replaced by the system state data you're restoring. If you restore to an alternate location, only the registry, Sysvol, and system boot files are restored. You can only restore system state data on a local system. Tip By default, Active Directory and other replicated data, such as Sysvol, aren't restored on domain controllers. This information is instead replicated to the domain controller after you restart it, which prevents accidental overwriting of essential domain information. To learn how to restore Active Directory, see the "Restoring Active Directory" section of this chapter. 475
    • 475. Click Next. Click Advanced if you want to override default options, and then follow steps 5–7. Otherwise, skip to step 8. Select the restore location using one of the following options: Original Location Restores data to the folder or files it was in when it was backed up. Alternate Location Restores data to a folder that you designate, preserving the directory structure. After selecting this option, enter the folder path to use or click Browse to select the folder path. Single Folder Restores all files to a single folder without preserving the directory structure. After selecting this option, enter the folder path to use or click Browse to select the folder path. Do Not Replace The Files On My Computer (Recommended) Select this option if you don't want to copy over existing files. Replace The File On Disk Only If the File On Disk Is Older Select this option to replace older files on disk with newer files from the backup. Always Replace The File On My Computer Select this option to replace all the files on disk with files from the backup. 476
    • 476. If they're available, you can choose to restore security and system files using the following options: Restore Security:Restores security settings for files and folders on NTFS volumes. Restore Removable Storage Database:Restores the Removable Storage configuration if you archived SystemRoot%System32 Ntmsdata. Choosing this option will delete existing Removable Storage information. Restore Junction Points, Not The Folder And File Data They Restores network drive mappings but doesn't restore the actual data to the mapped network drive. Essentially, you're restoring the folder that references the network drive. Click Next, and then click Finish. If prompted, type the path and name of the backup set to use. You can cancel the backup by clicking Cancel in the Operation Status and Restore Progress dialog boxes. When the restore is completed, click Close to complete the process or click Report to view a backup log containing information about the restore 477 operation.

    • 478. SKILLS FOR INDIA Access Control List
    • 479. An access control list (ACL), with respect to a computer file system, is a list of permissions attached to an object. An ACL specifies which users or system processes are granted access to objects, as well as what operations are allowed on given objects. Each entry in a typical ACL specifies a subject and an operation. For instance, if a file has an ACL that contains (Alice, delete), this would give Alice permission to delete the file. ACL are the basic security feature that is required in any network to control the flow of traffic. Most of time our network may have servers and clients for which traffic control is required. We can also use ACL to classify the traffic. ACLs are used in features like QOS (Quality of Service), Prioritize traffic and interesting traffic for ISDN. 480
    • 480. Classification Access Control List Types of ACL based on Protocol: (1) IP Access Control List (2) IPX Access Control List (3) Apple talk Access Control List Types of ACL based on Feature: (1) Standard ACL (2) Extended ACL Types of ACL based on Access mode: (1) Numbered ACL (2) Named ACL 481
    • 481. Classification Access Control List Types of ACL based on Order of rules: (1) Deny, permit (2) Permit, deny Types of ACL based on direction of implementation: (1) Inbound ACL (2) Outbound ACL 482
    • 482. Flow chart of Inbound ACL A Packet is received No Is there any Accesslist applied on interface in Inbound direction? The packet is passed to Routing Engine Yes No Is there any macthine rule in ACL from top-down order? The packet is dropped. Yes The packet is passed to RE Yes Is it permit ? No The packet is dropped. 483
    • 483. IP Standard ACL (Numbered) In Standard ACL, we are only able to specify source address for the filtering of packets. The syntax to create IP standard ACL are: Router#conf ter Router(config)#access-list <no> <permit|deny> <source> Router(config)#exit <source> Single pc host N/w Subnet All any 484
    • 484. Example: - – 18 should not access Internet; rest of all other pc should access Internet. Internet Router 172.16.x.x Router#conf ter Router(config)#access-list 30 deny Router(config)#access-list 30 deny Router(config)#access-list 30 deny Router(config)#access-list 30 permit any Router(config)#exit 485
    • 485. IP Standard ACL (Named) In Numbered ACL editing feature is not available that is we are not able to delete single rule from the ACL. In Named ACL editing feature is available. Router#config ter Router(config)#ip access-list standard <name> Router(config-std-nacl)#<deny|permit> <source> Router(config-std-nacl)#exit Router#conf ter Router(config)#ip access-list standard abc Router(config-std-nacl)#deny Router(config-std-nacl)#deny Router(config-std-nacl)#deny Router(config-std-nacl)#permit any Router(config-std-nacl)#exit 486
    • 486. To control Telnet access using ACL If we want to control telnet with the help of ACL then we can create a standard ACL and apply this ACL on vty port. The ACL that we will create for vty will be permit – deny order. Example: - suppose we want to allow telnet to our router from & pc. Router#conf ter Router(config)#access-list 50 permit Router(config)#access-list 50 permit Router(config)#line vty 0 4 Router(config-line)#access-class 50 in Router(config)#exit 487
    • 487. IP Extended ACL (Numbered) Extended ACL are advanced ACL. ACL, which can control traffic flow on the basis of five different parameters that are: (i) Source address (ii) Destination address (iii) Source port (iv) Destination port (v) Protocol (layer 3/layer 4) 488
    • 488. The syntax to create Extended ACL Router#conf ter Router(config)#access-list <no> <deny|permit> <protocol> <source> [<s.port>] <destination> [<d.port>] router(config)#exit <no> -> 100 to 199 <protocol> -> layer ¾ IP TCP UDP ICMP IGRP 489
    • 489. The syntax to create Extended ACL <Source port> <Destination port> <Source> <Destination> no (1 to 65535) or telnet/www/ftp etc. Single pc host N/w Subnet All Any 490
    • 490. To display ACL Router#show access-lists or Router#show access-list <no> To display ACL applied on interface Router#show ip interface Router#show ip interface <type> <no> Router#show ip interface Ethernet 0 491
    • 491. Switch port ACL You can only apply port ACLs to layer 2 interfaces on your switches because they are only supported on physical layer 2 interfaces. You can apply them as only inbound lists on your interfaces, and you can use only named lists as well. Extended IP access lists use both source and destination addresses as well as optional protocol information and port number. There are also MAC extended access lists that use source and destination MAC addresses and optional protocol type information. Switches scrutinize all inbound ACLs applied to a certain interface and decide to allow traffic through depending on whether the traffic is a good match to the ACL or not. ACLs can also be used to control traffic on VLANs. You just need to apply a port ACL to a trunk port. 492
    • 492. Switch#conf ter Switch(config)#mac access-list extended abc Switch(config-ext-mac)#deny any host 000d.29bd.4b85 Switch(config-ext-mac)#permit any any Switch(config-ext-mac)#do show access-list Switch(config-ext-mac)#int f0/6 Switch(config-if)#mac access-group abc 493
    • 493. Lock and Key (Dynamic ACLs) These ACLs depends on either remote or local Telnet authentication in combination with extended ACLs. Before you can configure a dynamic ACL, you need to apply an extended ACL on your router to stop the flow of traffic through it. Reflexive ACLs These ACLs filter IP packets depending upon upper-layer session information, and they often permit outbound traffic to pass but place limitations on inbound traffic. You can not define reflexive ACLs with numbered or standard IP ACLs, or any other protocol ACLs. They can be used along with other standard or static extended ACLs, but they are only defined with extended named IP ACLs. 494
    • 494. Time-Based ACLs In this you can specify a certain time of day and week and then identity that particular period by giving it a name referenced by a task. The reference function will fall under whatever time constraints you have dictated. The time period is based upon the router’s clock, but it is highly recommended that using it in conjunction with Network Time Protocol (NTP) synchronization. Router#conf ter Router(config)#time-range no-http Router(config-time-range)#periodic <Wednesday|weekdays| weekend> 06:00 to 12:00 Router(config-time-range)#exit Router(config)#time-range tcp-yes Router(config-time-range)#periodic weekend 06:00 to 12:00 Router(config-time-range)#exit 495
