Addressing Table

Device Interface IP Address Subnet Mask Default Gateway
[[R1Name]] G0/0 [[R1Add]] 255.255.255.0 N/A
[[PC1Name]] NIC [[PC1Add]] 255.255.255.0 [[R1Add]]

Scenario

The network administrator has asked you to prepare [[R1Name]] for deployment. Before it can be connected to the network, security measures must be enabled.

Requirements

  • Configure IP addressing on [[PC1Name]] according to the Addressing Table.
  • Console into [[R1Name]] from the Terminal on PC-A.
  • Configure IP addressing on [[R1Name]] and enable the interface.
  • Configure the hostname as [[R1Name]].
  • Encrypt all plaintext passwords.
    • [[R1Name]](config)# service password-encryption
  • Set a strong secret password of your choosing.
  • Set the domain name to [[R1Name]].com (case-sensitive for scoring in PT).
    • [[R1Name]](config)# ip domain-name [[R1Name]].com
  • Create a user of your choosing with a strong password.
    • [[R1Name]](config)# username any_user password any_password
  • Generate 1024-bit RSA keys.
    • Note: In Packet Tracer, enter the crypto key generate rsa command and press Enter to continue.
    • [[R1Name]](config)# crypto key generate rsa
    • The name for the keys will be: [[R1Name]].[[R1Name]].com
    • Choose the size of the key modulus in the range of 360 to 2048 for your
    • General Purpose Keys. Choosing a key modulus greater than 512 may take
    • a few minutes.
    • How many bits in the modulus [512]: 1024
    • % Generating 1024 bit RSA keys, keys will be non-exportable…[OK]
  • Block anyone for three minutes who fails to log in after four attempts within a two-minute period.
    • [[R1Name]](config)# login block-for 180 attempts 4 within 120
  • Configure the VTY lines for SSH access and use the local user profiles for authentication.
    • [[R1Name]](config)# line vty 0 4
    • [[R1Name]](config-line)# transport input ssh
    • [[R1Name]](config-line)# login local
  • Save the configuration to NVRAM.
  • Be prepared to demonstrate to your Answer that you have established SSH access from [[PC1Name]] to [[R1Name]].
