Scenario: In this Free CCNA Lab we will use Packet Tracer to troubleshoot a simulated network that was designed and configured to support five VLANs and a separate server network. Inter-VLAN routing is provided by an external router in a router-on-a-stick configuration. However, the network is not working as designed and complaints from your users […]

Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) is an algorithm that provides path redundancy while preventing undesirable loops in a network that are created by multiple active paths between switches. Loops occur when there are alternate routes between two or more switches within the network. To establish path redundancy, STP creates a tree that spans all of the […]
Overview: In the previous VTP lab we used Cisco Packet Tracer to demonstrate how to configure VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) in a server client environment. In this Packet Tracer activity we will learn about VTP transparent mode and how to configure it on a Cisco Catalyst switch.
Switching has become the standard for most company internal network infrastructure as each port maintains its own collision domain, and with the advent of VLANs further allow the engineer to segment the network into multiple, smaller broadcast domains. As a Cisco engineer, as well as in the Cisco CCNA exam, you will need to know […]
