2 Basics of Networking An overview of computer networking which introduces many key concepts and terminology. Sets the stage for future topics.
3 A network consists of 2 or more computers connected together, and they can communicate and share resources (e.g. information)
4 Communications – activity associated with distributing or exchanging information Telecommunications – technology of communications at a distance that permits information to be created any where and used everywhere with little delay A network is a way to get stuff between 2 or more things Examples: Mail, phone system, conversations, railroad system, highways and roads

12 Bus: each node is daisy-chained (connected one right after the other) along the same backbone. Information sent from a node travels along the backbone until it reaches its destination node. Each end of a bus network must be terminated with a resistor to keep the Bus Topology
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.
14 In a star network, each node is connected to a central device called a hub. The hub takes a signal that comes from any node and passes it along to all the other nodes in the network 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 Star Topology
15 Prob. Most common topology used today. Combines elements of the star and bus topologies to create a versatile network environment Nodes in particular areas are connected to hubs (and create star topology), and hubs are connected together along the network backbone (like a bus network) Often you have stars nested within stars Star-Bus Topology
16 It is also called a point-to-point topology Each device is connected directly to all other network devices It provides fault tolerance It is only found in wide area networks Mesh Topology
17 Some basic network topologies not previously mentioned: One-to-one Hierarchical Hybrid Client-server Multiple nodes Other network topologies

21 Classification based on how computers behave in a network Two classifications are Peer-to-Peer network Server based network Network configuration
22 Nodes provide and request services User in each node administers resources No extra investment Easy to setup Very weak security Additional load on nodes Peer-to-Peer network
23 Designated computer to administer Resources centralized Supports larger networks Strong security Expensive Server based network
24 Advantages of peer-to-peer networks: Low cost Simple to configure User has full accessibility of the computer Disadvantages of peer-to-peer networks: May have duplication in resources Difficult to uphold security policy Difficult to handle uneven loading Where peer-to-peer network is appropriate: 10 or less users No specialized services required Security is not an issue Only limited growth in the foreseeable future
25 Clients Workstation Network Clients (Workstation) Computers that request network resources or services Servers Network Servers Computers that manage and provide network resources and services to clients Usually have more processing power, memory and hard disk space than clients Run Network Operating System that can manage not only data, but also users, groups, security, and applications on the network Servers often have a more stringent requirement on its performance and reliability Clients and Servers
26 Advantages of client/server networks Facilitate resource sharing – centrally administrate and control Facilitate system backup and improve fault tolerance Enhance security – only administrator can have access to Server Support more users – difficult to achieve with peer-to-peer networks Disadvantages of client/server networks High cost for Servers Need expert to configure the network Introduce a single point of failure to the system

63 Local Area Network Metropolitan Area network Wide area network The internet Personal Area Network Major Categories of Networks
64 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. Local Area Network
65 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. Metropolitan Area Network
67 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 standard-based WAN architecture, Visa International relies on their network infrastructure to provide reliable access to merchants who accept Visa credit cards for transactions. Wide Area Network
69 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 on- demand 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 (BNEP). Personal Area Network
71 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-to- South 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 govt 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 Data Communications Through WANs
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

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
77 ISO/OSI Reference Model How to transmit signal; coding Hardware means of sending an receiving data on a carrier Two party communication: Ethernet Routing and Forwarding Address: IP End-to-end control & error checking (ensure complete data transfer): TCP Establish/manage connection ASCII Text, Sound (syntax layer) File Transfer, , Remote Login
78 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 Layer 1: Physical layer
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, ITU-T G.hn and IEEE , as well as personal area networks such as Bluetooth and IEEE token ringFDDIITU-TG.hnIEEE BluetoothIEEE
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 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.data link layerIEEE Project 802sub-layeringLLCTCPX.25
81 The ITU-T G.hn 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.
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.
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
84 An example of this latter case is CLNP, or IPv6 ISO 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
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 state- and 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.
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.
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, Inter- Process_(computing) communication happen (SIGHUP, SIGKILL, End Process, etc.).
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.
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.
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.  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.TCP/IP model RFC 3439considered harmful 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.application layertransport layer
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.

Understanding Network Protocols SKILLS FOR INDIA
95 Protocol are used for communication between computers in different computer networks. Protocol achieves: What is communicated between computers? How it is communicated? When it is communicated? What conformance (bit sequence) between computers? Key elements of a protocol are: SYNTAC: Data format and signal levels SEMANTICS: Control information for coordination and error handling TIMING: Synchronization, speed matching, and sequencing Examples of protocols: WAN Protocol: TCP/IP Protocols of Computer Communications and Networks
96 The Internet Protocol Suite and the OSI Reference Model
97 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, , 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. TCP
98 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. User Datagram Protocol
99 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. Internet Control Message Protocol
100 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. Hypertext Transfer Protocol
101 In computing, the Post Office Protocol (POP) is an application- layer Internet standard protocol used by local clients to retrieve e- mail 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 retrieval. Virtually all modern 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. Post Office Protocol
102 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. File Transfer Protocol
103 Internet message access protocol (IMAP) is one of the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for e- mail retrieval, the other being the Post Office Protocol (POP). Virtually all modern clients and mail servers support both protocols as a means of transferring 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 e- mail on a remote mail server. The current version, IMAP version 4 revision 1 (IMAP4rev1), is defined by RFC An IMAP server typically listens on well-known port 143. IMAP over SSL (IMAPS) is assigned well-known port number 993. Internet Message Control Protocol
104 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. IPX/SPX
105 IPX/SPX SPX - Sequenced Packet Exchange operates at the transport layer providing connection oriented communication on top of IPX. IPX - Internetwork Packet Exchange supports the transport and network layers of the OSI network model. Provides for network addressing and routing. It provides fast, unreliable, communication with network nodes using a connection less datagram service.
106 Other Network Support ODI - Open Data-link Interface operates at the data link layer allowing IPX to work with any network interface card RIP - Routing Information Protocol is the default routing protocol for IPX/SPX networks which operates at the network layer. A distance-vector algorithm is used to calculate the best route for a packet MHS - Message Handling Service by Novell is used for mail on Netware networks Network LevelProtocols Application NCPSAP Presentation Session Transport IPX SPX Network Data Link NDIS/NIC drivers
107 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 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. NetBIOS
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.
109 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. Difference between NetBIOS & NetBEUI
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.
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 Many of AppleTalk's more advanced auto-configuration features have since been introduced in Bonjour.
112 HTTP This protocol, the core of the World Wide Web, facilitates retrieval and transfer of hypertext (mixed media) documents. Stands for the HyperText Transfer protocol Telnet A remote terminal emulation protocol that enables clients to log on to remote hosts on the network. SNMP Used to remotely manage network devices. Stands for the Simple Network Management Protocol. DNS Provides meaningful names like achilles.mycorp.com for computers to replace numerical addresses like Stands for the Domain Name System. SLIP/ PPP SLIP (Serial Line Internet Protocol) and PPP (Point to Point Protocol) encapsulate the IP packets so that they can be sent over a dial up phone connection to an access providers modem.

116 What is an IP address? IP (Internet Protocol) address Device used by routers, to select best path from source to destination, across networks and internetworks Network layer address, consisting of NETWORK portion, and HOST portion Logical address, assigned in software by network administrator Part of a hierarchical numbering scheme - unique, for reliable routing May be assigned to a host pc, or router port
117 Types of IP address Static address Dynamic address
118 Static IP address Manually input by network administrator Manageable for small networks Requires careful checks to avoid duplication
119 Dynamic IP address Examples - BOOTP, DHCP Assigned by server when host boots Derived automatically from a range of addresses Duration of lease negotiated, then address released back to server

136 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
137 IP Routing Packet forwarding It is a process that is by default enable in router. The router will perform packet forwarding only if route is available in the routing table.
138 Routing Process The pc has a packet in which destination address is not same as the local n/w address. The pc will send an ARP request for default gateway. The router will reply to the ARP address and inform its Mac address to pc. The pc will encapsulate data, in which source IP is pc itself, destination IP is server, source Mac is pcs LAN interface and destination Mac is routers LAN interface.
139 Routing Process R S. MAC D. MAC PC1 R1 D. IP S. IP
140 The router will receive the frame, store it into the buffer. When obtain packet from the frame then forward data according to the destination IP of packet. The router will obtain a route from routing table according to which next hop IP and interface is selected According to the next hop, the packet will encapsulated with new frame and data is send to the output queue of the interface.
141 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 Next hop IP it is the IP address of neighbor router that is directly connected our router.
142 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.
143 Static route can also specify in following syntax: - Old Router(config)#ip route Or Router(config)#ip route serial 0 Alternate command to specify static route
144 If more than one path are available from our router to destination then we can specify one route as primary and other route as backup route. Administrator Distance is used to specify one route as primary and other route as backup. Router will select lower AD route to forward the traffic. By default static route has AD value of 1. With backup path, we will specify higher AD so that this route will be used if primary route is unavailable. ProtocolsAD Directly Connected0 Static1 BGP20 EIGRP90 IGRP100 OSPF110 RIP120 Backup route or loading static route
145 Syntax: - To set backup path Router(config)#ip route Default Routing Default routing means a route for any n/w. these routes are specify with the help of following syntax: - Router(config)#ip route Or To display routing table Router#sh ip route
146 To display routing table Router#sh ip route To display static routes only Router#sh ip route static S /28 [1/0] via To display connected n/ws only Router#sh ip route connected To check all the interface of a router Router#sh interface brief
147 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
148 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 RoutingExterior Routing RIPBGP IGRPEXEIGRP EIGRP OSPF
149 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.
150 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.
151 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.
152 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
153 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
154 MTU Maximum Transmission Unit It is the maximum size of packet that can be sent in a frame mostly MTU is set to 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.
155 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
156 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.
157 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.

We can declare an interface as passive with following commands: - Router#conf ter Router(config)#router rip Router(config-router)#Passive-interface Router(config-router)#exit
163 Neighbor RIP In RIP, by default routing updates are send to the address In some scenarios, it may be required to send routing updates as a unicast from router to another. In this case, we have to configure neighbor RIP. For example: - in a Frame Relay n/w the broadcast update is discarded by the switches, so if we want to send RIP updates across the switches then we have to unicast updates using Neighbor RIP.
165 To change Administrative Distance Router(config)#router rip Router(config-router)#distance Router(config-router)#exit 95 or 100 To configure Load Balance RIP is able to perform equal path cost Load Balancing. If multiple paths are available with equal Hop Count for the destination then RIP will balance load equally on all paths. Load Balancing is enabled by default 4 paths. We can change the no. of paths. It can use simultaneously by following command: - Router(config)#router rip Router(config-router)#maximum-path
166 To display RIP parameters Router#sh ip protocol Or Router#sh ip protocol RIP This command display following parameters: - (i) RIP Timers (ii) RIP Version (iii) Route filtering (iv) Route redistribution (v) Interfaces on which update send (vi) And receive (vii) Advertise n/w (viii) Passive interface (ix) Neighbor RIP (x) Routing information sources (xi) Administrative Distance

Rest all communication will remain same in RIP version 2. Router(config)#Router RIP Router(config-router)#version 2 Router(config-router)#exit

But it may be possible that the interfaces and working at its maximum speed then we have to configure bandwidth on interface, so that IGRP is able to calculate correct method
173 Router(config)#interface Router(config-if)#bandwidth Router(config-if)#exit Router(config)#interface serial 0 Router(config-if)#bandwidth 256 Router(config-if)#exit Configuring Unequal path cost load balancing To configure load balancing, we have to set two parameters (1) Maximum path (by default 4) (2) Variance (default 1) Maximum Path: - it is maximum no. of paths that can be used for load balancing simultaneously.
174 Variance: - it is the multiplier value to the least metric for a destination n/w up to which the load can be balanced. Router(config)#Router igrp Router(config-router)#variance Router(config-router)#exit
175 Configuring IGRP Configuring following options in IGRP as same as in case of RIP: - Neighbor Passive interface Timer Distance (AD) Maximum path
176 Network Address Translation RFC-1631 A short term solution to the problem of the depletion of IP addresses Long term solution is IP v6 (or whatever is finally agreed on) CIDR (Classless Inter Domain Routing ) is a possible short term solution NAT is another NAT is a way to conserve IP addresses Hide a number of hosts behind a single IP address Use: , or for local networks
177 Translation Modes Dynamic translation (IP masquerading) Large number of internal users share a single external address Static translation A block external addresses are translated to a same size block of internal addresses Load balancing translation A single incoming IP address is distributed across a number of internal servers Network redundancy translation Multiple internet connections are attached to a NAT firewall that it chooses and uses based on bandwidth, congestion and availability
178 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 doesnt 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 wont work; protocols that rely on separate connections back into the local network Theoretical max of 2 16 connections, actual is much less
179 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
180 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)
181 Network Redundancy Can be used to provide automatic fail-over of servers or load balancing Firewall is connected to multiple ISP with a masquerade for each ISP and chooses which ISP to use based on client load Kind of like reverse load balancing A dead ISP will be treated as a fully loaded one and the client will be routed through another ISP
182 Problems with NAT Cant be used with: Protocols that require a separate back-channel Protocols that encrypt TCP headers Embed TCP address info Specifically use original IP for some security reason
185 Static NAT This NAT is also used for servers. It provides port-based access to the servers with the help of NAT. Router Internet Live Local Static NAT =
186 Port Base Static NAT This NAT is used for servers in which one Live IP is directly mapped to one Local IP. This NAT will forward on the traffic for the Live IP to the Local PC in the n/w. Router Internet :80 -> Router :53 -> Web DNS
187 Dynamic NAT using Pool Dynamic NAT is used for clients, which want to access Internet. The request from multiple client IPs are translated with the Live IP obtained from the Pool. It is also called Pool Based Dynamic NAT. Pool => – /28 Internet Local address => X.X Except => Pool allotted => – 15/28 Server Static => = Port Based Static NAT :53 = :80 =
188 Dynamic NAT using Pool Client Dynamic NAT Pool => – /28 Local address => X Except

194 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.
195 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 NT- based 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 RS- 232ports, these would directly incorporate an analog modem. These devices were commonly used by Internet service providers to allow consumer dial- up. Modern versions interface to an ISDN PRI instead of having analog modem ports.

199 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:
200 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.
201 Contention CSMA/CD Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection IEEE Ethernet LANs use the Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision detection(CSMA/CD) protocol to detect and handle collisions on the network. However, WLANs cant use CSMA/CD because they cant transmit and listen at the same time. CSMA/CA Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance The IEEE b 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.
202 Token passing IEEE standard deals with Token Ring networks Token passing is implemented on a token-ring network. IEEE 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.
203 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
204 Collision & Broadcast Domains MAC Address Contains 48-bit destination address field. Who is this frame for? 00-C0-F0-56-BD-97 Hey Joe
205 MAC Address How will all other NICs handle the frame? Drop it (in the bit bucket)
206 Special MAC Address Who is this frame for? FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF Hey everybody
207 Broadcast MAC Address FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF 48 bits, all 1s All NICs copy the frame & send it up the stack
208 Broadcast Frames Necessary for network function Used for finding services: Hey, is there a server out there? Advertising services: Hey, Im a printer you can use. Some Layer 3 (Network Layer) protocols use broadcasts frequently: Appletalk IPX (older Novell protocol) Networks that use these protocols must be limited in size, or they will become saturated with broadcast frames. TCP/IP (a Layer 3 protocol) uses broadcasts sparingly. Therefore, networks that use TCP/IP can be made quite large without broadcast problems. (They scale well.)
Collision Domain Network region in which collisions are propagated. Repeaters and hubs propagate collisions. Bridges, switches and routers do not.
Reducing Collisions Collision frequency can be kept low by breaking the network into segments bounded by: bridges switches routers
Broadcast Domain Network region in which broadcast frames are propagated. Repeaters, hubs, bridges, & switches propagate broadcasts. Routers either do or dont, depending on their configuration.
Reducing Broadcasts Broadcasts are necessary for network function. Some devices and protocols produce lots of broadcasts; avoid them. Broadcast frequency can be kept manageable by limiting the LAN size. LANs can then be cross-connected by routers to make a larger internetwork.
Shared Ethernet A single segment that is shared among all connected NICs. A single collision domain. A logical bus (may be a physical star). The segment includes repeaters and hubs. Sometimes called a single flat Ethernet.
Switched Ethernet Consists of a several segments, each of which is shared by NICs attached to it. The network is segmented into several collision domains. Bridges, switches, and routers create the segment and collision domain boundaries. Segments may contain hubs and repeaters.

225 Reminder Collisions spread throughout a LAN segment spread across hubs & repeaters are stopped by switches & bridges Broadcasts spread throughout an entire LAN spread across hubs, switches, bridges are stopped only by routers
226 LAN Switching Ethernet switches are used in LAN to create Ethernet n/ws. Switches forward the traffic on the basis of MAC address. Switches maintain a Mac Addresse table in which mac addresses and port no.s are used to perform switching decision. Working of bridge and switch is similar to each other.
227 Classification of switches Switches are classified according to the following criteria: - Types of switches based on working (1) Store & Forward This switch receives entire frame then perform error checking and start forwarding data to the destination. (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.
228 Classification of switches Types of switches based on management (1) Manageable switches (2) Non-Manageable switches (3) Semi-Manageable switches Types of switches based on OSI layer (1) Layer 2 switches (only switching) (2) Layer 3 switches (switching & routing) Types of switches based on command mode (only in Cisco) (1) IOS based (2) CLI based Type of switches based on hierarchical model (1) Core layer switches (2) Distribution layer switches (3) Access layer switches
229 Basic Switch Administration IOS based switches are similar to the routers. We can perform following function on switches in a similar manner as performed on router. (1) Access switch using console (2) Commands to enter & exit from different mode (3) Commands to configure passwords (4) Manage configuration (5) Backup IOS and configuration (6) Configuring and resolving hostnames (7) Managing telnet (8) Configuring CDP (9) Configuring time clock (10) Configuring Banners (11) Command line shortcuts and editing shortcuts (12) Managing history (13) Configure logging (14) Boot system commands
230 Basic Switch Administration Following function and options are not similar in router and switch. (1) Default hostname is Switch (2) Auxiliary port is not present (3) VTY ports are mostly 0 to 15 (4) By default interfaces are enabled (5) IP address cannot be assign to interfaces (6) Routing configuration mode is not present (7) Interface no. starts from 1 (8) Web access is by default enabled (9) Configuration registry is not present in similar manner (10) Flash memory may contain multiple files and startup-configuration is also saved in flash
231 Configuring IP and Gateway on switch We can configure IP address on switch for web access or telnet IP address is required for the administration of the switch. If we have to access switch from remote n/w then we will configure default gateway in addition to IP address. IP address is assigned to the logical interface of switch with following command:- Switch(config)#interface vlan 1 Switch(config)#IP address Switch(config)#no sh Switch(config)#exit
233 (1) Power off switch press mode button present in front of switch then power on the switch. (2) Keep mode button press until Switch: prompt appears on console. (3) In switch monitor mode, type following commands: - flash_init load_helper rename flash:config.text flash: dir flash: boot (4) After booting switch will prompt to enter in initial configuration dialog. Enter no here and type. Switch>enable Rename flash: Flash:config.text Configure memory Change password and save config. Then copy run start_config. Breaking Switch Password

237 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
238 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
239 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.protocol suiteInternet ProtocolauthenticatingencryptingIP packetmutual authenticationcryptographic keys 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 (network-to- network), or between a security gateway and a host (network-to-host). Internet LayerInternet Protocol Suite  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.Secure Sockets LayerTransport Layer SecuritySecure Shellupper layers
240 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.VPNOpenVPN 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).DARPANISTNational Security Agency 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 IPsecInternet Engineering Task ForceRequest for Comments
241 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.
242 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-to- Point 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.
243 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.
244 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.
245 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.
246 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 rotational- vibrational 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.
247 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.

255 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 buildings 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.
256 Radio frequency interference: Wireless technologies such as b/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.
257 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.
258 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.
259 Step 5 Open a browser and type the router's IP address, which likely will be either "http:// " or "http:// " 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.
260 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 first- grade hackers. By the time most hackers get into the second grade, they learn that even the most obscure SSID is easy to get around.
261 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.
262 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. Youd 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.
263 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!
264 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 b or g 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.
265 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.
266 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
267 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. Its 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.

271 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.
272 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 web site from linking directly to the outside domains
273 Types of proxy Forward proxies Open proxies Reverse proxies
274 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 sub- types of the general forward proxy concept.
275 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.
276 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.
277 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.
278 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.

282 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.)
283 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
284 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.
285 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
286 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
287 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.
288 Commands to create Vlan Switch#config ter Switch(config)#vlan [name ] Switch(config)#exitoptional Or Switch#vlan database Switch(vlan)#vlan [name ] Switch(vlan)#exit

291 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 q Trunking
