This lab asks you to do a basic migration: move from using two parallel serial links as independent links to instead treating them as one layer 3 link using MLPPP. This lab requires new configuration as well as analysis of
Multilink PPP (MLPPP) makes multiple parallel links act like one link from a layer 3 perspective. In this next lab, the lab begins with a working configuration that does not use MLPPP, with two parallel serial links between two routers.
Configuring multilink PPP (MLPPP) uses a large number of commands for a single feature. However, many of the commands are repetitive on several interfaces. The trick is to figure out which commands are repeated on both the physical and multilink
Multilink PPP (MLPPP) makes multiple parallel links act like one link from a layer 3 perspective. Then, when a router’s layer 3 routing decides to forward a layer 3 packet out the layer 3 MLPPP multilink interface, the router has
Unidirectional PAP authentication – sounds like a lot to do, but it just takes a few commands. Check out the requirements back in the lab post, create your answers, and come back here to check your work.
PPP authentication has been around for a long time with both Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) and Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP). Although most people use CHAP (for stronger authentication), practicing PAP from the CLI can be useful for rounding out
This latest lab requires just a few commands on two neighboring routers to get a serial link working. Configure PPP, IPv4 addresses, and get the link up and working with the Telco serial link. Check the original requirements first, create
Many of us practice creating serial links in lab – but what about when you create a serial link with a real serial link from the Telco? What small differences (if any) exist in the config? This lab asks that
Time to check your config for a back-to-back serial link in a lab. Check out the requirements back in the lab post, create your answers, and come back here to check your work.
Take two routers in a lab, both with serial interfaces, and connect them with a back-to-back serial cable. Do you remember the details of how to configure both routers so that both routers can ping each other? Today’s lab provides
