Assignment Detail:- Packet Tracer - Identify MAC and IP Addresses
Part 1: Gather PDU Information
Part 2: Reflection Questions
BackgroundThis activity is optimized for viewing PDUs- The devices are already configured- You will gather PDU information in simulation mode and answer a series of questions about the data you collect -
Part 1: Gather PDU InformationNote: Review the Reflection Questions in Part 2 before proceeding with Part 1- It will give you an idea of the types of information you will need to gather-
Step 1: Gather PDU information as a packet travels from 172-16-31-2 to 10-10-10-3-a- Click 172-16-31-2 and open the Command Prompt-b- Enter the ping 10-10-10-3 command-c- Switch to simulation mode and repeat the ping 10-10-10-3 command- A PDU appears next to172-16-31-2-d- Click the PDU and note the following information from the Outbound PDU Layer tab:• Destination MAC Address: 00D0:BA8E:741A• Source MAC Address: 000C:85CC:1DA7• Source IP Address: 172-16-31-2• Destination IP Address: 10-10-10-3• At Device: Computere- Click Capture / Forward to move the PDU to the next device- Gather the same information from Step 1d- Repeat this process until the PDU reaches its destination- Record the PDU information you gathered into a spreadsheet using a format like the table shown below:
Step 2: Gather additional PDU information from other pings-Repeat the process in Step 1 and gather the information for the following tests:• Ping 10-10-10-2 from 10-10-10-3-• Ping 172-16-31-2 from 172-16-31-3-• Ping 172-16-31-4 from 172-16-31-5-• Ping 172-16-31-4 from 10-10-10-2-• Ping 172-16-31-3 from 10-10-10-2-
Part 2: Reflection Questions
Answer the following questions regarding the captured data:
Question 1- Were there different types of wires used to connect devices????
Question 2- Did the wires change the handling of the PDU in any way????
Question 3- Did the Hub lose any of the information given to it????
Question 4- What does the Hub do with MAC addresses and IP addresses????
Question 5- Did the wireless Access Point do anything with the information given to it????
Question 6- Was any MAC or IP address lost during the wireless transfer????
Question 7- What was the highest OSI layer that the Hub and Access Point used????
Question 8- Did the Hub or Access Point ever replicate a PDU that was rejected with a red "X"????
Question 9- When examining the PDU Details tab, which MAC address appeared first, the source or the destination????
Question 10- Why would the MAC addresses appear in this order????
Question 11- Was there a pattern to the MAC addressing in the simulation????
Question 12- Did the switches ever replicate a PDU that was rejected with a red "X"????
Question 13- Every time that the PDU was sent between the 10 network and the 172 network, there was a point where the MAC addresses suddenly changed- Where did that occur????
Question 14- Which device uses MAC addresses starting with 00D0????
Question 15- To what devices did the other MAC addresses belong????
Question 16- Did the sending and receiving IPv4 addresses switch in any of the PDUs????
Question 17- If you follow the reply to a ping, sometimes called a pong, do the sending and receiving IPv4 addresses switch????
Question 18- What is the pattern to the IPv4 addressing in this simulation????
Question 19- Why do different IP networks need to be assigned to different ports of a router????
Question 20- If this simulation was configured with IPv6 instead of IPv4, what would be different????
