Lab 4.5.1 Identifying Traffic Flows

Step 1: Cable and configure the current network
a. Referring to the topology diagram, connect the console (or rollover) cable to the console port on the router and the other cable end to the host computer with a DB-9 or DB-25 adapter to the COM 1 port.
Ensure that power has been applied to both the host computer and router.
b. Establish a HyperTerminal or other terminal emulation program to the router.
c. From the command prompt on Host1, ping between Host1 and Discovery Server to confirm network
connectivity. Troubleshoot and establish connectivity if the pings fail.

Step 2: Configure NetFlow on the interfaces
From the global configuration mode, issue the following commands to configure NetFlow:
FC-CPE-1(config)#interface fastethernet 0/0
FC-CPE-1(config-if)#ip flow egress
FC-CPE-1(config-if)#ip flow ingress
FC-CPE-1(config-if)#interface fastethernet 0/1
FC-CPE-1(config-if)#ip flow ingress
FC-CPE-1(config-if)#ip flow egress

Step 3: Verify the NetFlow configuration
a. From the privileged EXEC mode, issue the show ip flow interface command.
FC-CPE-1#show ip flow interface
ip flow ingress
ip flow egress
ip flow ingress
ip flow egress
Confirm that the output shown above is displayed. Troubleshoot your configuration if this output is not
b. From the privileged EXEC mode, issue the following command to ensure that flow cache statistics are
FC-CPE-1#clear ip flow stats

Step 4: Create network data traffic
A range of network application data flows is to be generated and captured. Generate as many of the data
flows shown below as is possible in your lab. Your instructor will advise you of the particular applications that are available to be used in this lab.
a. Ping the Discovery Server from Host1 to generate a data flow.
From the command line of Host1, issue the command ping -n 200
b. Telnet to the Discovery Server from Host1.
If Discovery Server is being used, issue the command telnet server.discovery.ccna from the
command prompt of Host1.
If Discovery Server is not being used, DNS is not configured , or if a terminal program such as
HyperTerminal or TeraTerm is being used, telnet from Host1 to
c. On Host1, launch a web browser and enter the URL http://server.discovery.ccna
If Discovery Server is not being used or DNS is not configured, then use to access
the web services configured on that server.
d. Use FTP to download a file.
On Host1, launch a web browser and enter the URL ftp://server.discovery.ccna, or issue
ftp server.discovery.ccna from the command line. If DNS is not configured use the IP
address instead of the domain name.
Download a file from the server.
e. If email accounts have been configured using the POP3 and SMTP services on Discovery Server, send an email using one of these accounts.

Step 5: View the data flows
At the conclusion of the data flow, view the details by issuing the show ip cache flowcommand from privileged EXEC mode.
FC-CPE-1#show ip cache flow
Output similar to this will be displayed.
IP packet size distribution (3969 total packets):
1-32 64 96 128 160 192 224 256 288 320 352 384 416 448 480

From your output, list the name of each protocol with the number of flows. Answers vary. Examples shown.
Telnet 9 flows
FTP 28 flows
WWW 64 flows
DNS 878 flows
ICMP 26 flows
TCP other 16 flows
UDP other 347 flows
What was the total number of packets generated? 3969 packets
Which protocol generated the most packets? TCP other (75 x 16 = 1200)
Which protocol produced the most bytes per flow? TCP other (75 x 840 = 63000)
Which protocol’s flows were on the network the longest time? Telnet 5.2 sec
Which protocol used the longest amount of network time? UDP other (4.5 x 347 = 1561.5 sec)

Step 6: Clean up
Erase the configurations and reload the routers and switches. Disconnect and store the cabling. For PC hosts that are normally connected to other networks (such as the school LAN or to the Internet), reconnect the appropriate cabling and restore the TCP/IP settings.

Step 7: Reflection
Create a projected applications document listing the applications planned to use the network.
