UNIT 1 – INDIVIDUAL PROJECT 1 3 This network will be implemented with the addition of two new layer-2 switches, a 48 port switch to connect the workstations, and an 8 port switch for printer connectivity. The two separate switches will be set up in their own broadcast domain and subnets. The first subnet will be for the XP workstations and will be assigned the 192.168.0.0 / 24 class C subnet. The second subnet will be for the printers and they will be assigned the 192.168.1.0 / 24 class C subnet. Both of the subnet networks will use the 255.255.255.0 (/24) subnet mask and the supernet that will be used to encompass both of the subnets will be the 192.168.0.0 / 23 network. In addition, the

UNIT 1 – INDIVIDUAL PROJECT 1 4 Windows 2008 Server will be set up to work as the router for the network and will regulate the traffic between the workstations and printer. This will require the server to have dual NIC cards, one for each of the switches on the network (Mir, 2007). The server will also require two IP addresses to act as default gateways for the subnets, these IP addresses will be 192.168.0.201 and 192.168.1.201. The administrator will also need to access the properties of the LAN NIC cards and configure the IP addresses on the workstations and printers. This is done through the Windows Control Panel as follows.
