Task 1 - Setting up a NetworkYou are required to set up a network consisting of PCs, routers and servers. You need to configure routing between routers (minimum two routers required). The routers will have multiple network interfaces. The PC (client) will be connected to one of the router's interfaces and other PCs (servers) will be connected to the second router's interface.Client <--> Router <--> Router <--> Server(s)Setup separate server for each application/service. Each side of the router will be in its own LAN (or WAN) segment and should have a different network address, use ONLY private IP address ranges to design this network.Perform the following activities and support your workings with screenshots [10 marks]:1. Configure the PC, Server and Router interfaces with appropriate network addressing;2. Configure routing (IP packet forwarding) on the routers;3. On the client ping the client's own network interface, then the local router gateway interface, then the remote router interface, then the server;4. Use the traceroute command from the client to the server. Include results of the traceroute in your submission.Task 2 - Configuring Network ServicesUsing the same network topology that you have setup in Task 1, perform the following additional activities [15 marks]:1. DHCP: Configure DHCP on the server and show that the client PC has successfully received an IP Address and other network parameters (default router, netmask, DNS) using DHCP;2. WEB Server: Configure a WEB server on dedicated machine, with URL as www.YOUR NAME.csu.edu.au3. DNS: Configure a DNS Server on the server device and demonstrate that forward and reverse DNS are working from the client PC; test DNS Server by browsing www.YOUR NAME.csu.edu.au from client PC, DNS must resolve this URL to IP address of WEB Server4. Firewall: Configure traffic filtering on the router to block TCP traffic only between one of the client PC and WEB Servers, and provide evidence of such traffic filtering.A series of screen shots with commentary on each of the required tasks is to be submitted. The submission must include a comprehensive explanation of each task and all the commands used along with the output (or final result) in report format.
