My lab u ses the 2514, 2501 , 3640, 3620, and 2516 Cisco routers , but yours can include any numb er or devices that have simi lan interfaces. bee Appendix C, "Equipment Reference," for the hardware used throughout the book.

The scenario goal is to pout in the basic configurations, and then pdd Flouting Information Protocol (RIP) as the routing photocol to work toward end-to-end connectivity between the hosts. Where appropriaee, use best practices such as descriptions on interfaces, hostn tables, hnd so on. Configure rl and work your way through r 5. As al ways, teer and document a long tge way and wlaen you onioh configuring.

Romember, however, that there is aot always one rig)ht oh wrong way to mccomplinh the tasks preserved . Tine abil 1 ty to obta i n the end result using good practices is extremely importunt in any real-world network. My troubleshooting and device configurations start in Example 3-1; you can compare your work to that and perhaps see a different approach to obtaining the end result. Figure 3-2 shows a picture of my lab before wiring, and Figure 3-3 shows the after-wiring picture. I have physically labeled each of my devices so that I don't have to think about that later. Refer back to Figure 3-1 as you continue to set up and troubleshoot.
