Lab 3.4.3 Part B: Configuring Inter-VLAN Routing
Step 1: Connect the equipment
Step 2: Perform basic configurations on the router
Step 3: Configure VLAN trunking on the router
Step 4: .Configure Switch 1
Are all other switch ports in VLAN 1?
Which switch ports are in VLAN 10?
Which switch ports are in VLAN 20?
Issue the command show vlan.
What difference is noticed between the two commands show vlan brief and show vlan?
Step 5: Configure VLAN trunking on Switch 1
Which interfaces on Switch 1 are in trunk mode?
Which VLANs are allowed and active in the management domain?
Step 6: Configure VTP on Switch 1
Step 7: Configure Switch 2
Step 8: Configure VLAN trunking on Switch 2
Step 9: Configure VTP on Switch 2
Switch2(config)#vtp mode client
From Switch 2, verify that all VLANs have been propagated across the domain by issuing the command show vtp status.
What is the VTP version used on Switch 2?
What is the maximum VLANs supported locally?
What VTP operating mode is used on Switch 2?
What is the VTP domain name?
How did Switch 2 learn the domain name and VLAN information?
Step 10: Verify connectivity
The router and switches should be able to ping the interfaces of the other devices.
a. From each device, issue a ping to all interfaces.
Are the router pings successful?
b. From Switch 1, ping to all other devices.
Are Switch 1 pings successful?
From Switch 2, ping to all other devices.
Are Switch 2 pings successful? __________ If the ping is not successful, verify the connections and configurations again. Check to ensure that all cables are correct and that connections are seated. Check the router and switch configurations.
Step 11: Reflection
a. Why would VLANs be configured in a network?
b. Why would a VLAN benefit from trunking?
c. Why should VTP be used?
d. Which device provides connectivity between different VLANs?e. What are some benefits of VLANs?
