1.2. Connecting two LANs using multi-router topology with static routes
The main objective is to extend routing connection by using multiple routers. The concepts include IP addressing and basic network routing principles. Connect two LANs topology. During router configuration attention is paid to the types of interfaces as additional issues are involved with set-up. For example, the serial interfaces require clocking mechanisms to be set correctly. Once the interfaces are working the ping command is used to check for communication between LANs. The failure of communication illustrates the need for routes to be established inside the routing infrastructure. Static routes are used to show how packets can be transported through any reasonable route. It is run trace route on two different configurations to demonstrate the implementation of different routes.
