Trunking And Native VLAN

Posted on
trunk

It’s time to talk about trunking and native vlan. Well perhaps it would be better if we post this article before VTP but not so much problem i think !Trunking works at Layer-2 of OSI referance model and carries multi vlan information between VLANs. Each frame sets the VLAN information. ( That is known as […]

eigrp configuration

After overview of EIGRP , it is time to take a look at EIGRP configuration. EIGRP configuration is really awesome and not so hard if you compare with OSPF or etc. Let’s take a look to figure below and configure this topology via EIGRP step by step. Configure the network above with EIGRP using Autonomous system number 90. Use […]

redistribution

In this article we will deeply check redistribution. First of all we need to know “why redistribution is used”. We use “redistribution” , to have a communication between different routing protocols. For example if we are using multiple protocols like EIGRP , OSPF and etc. and want communication between these protocols, we should use redistribution. […]

policy based routing

Policy based routing is a method for defining path selection due to rules. It is known as the “programming language” of the routers. Policy based routing works based on if / then statements. Check to configuration example above for more information. POLICY BASED ROUTING CONFIGURATION – PC-1 is surfing on internet all day, route that […]

ospf neighbor states

After OSPF Basics it is time to look at “OSPF Neighbor States”. In this article, we will review to step by step OSPF neighbor adjacency. May be you saw the image below before, but we will examine it deeply. 1) First step of  “OSPF neighbor states” is determining the “Router ID”s. Both routers determine their router ID’s […]

loop guard

LOOP GUARD : As you know, if you are using STP, one port is blocked in a topology like this because of preventing loops.But BPDU change continues. In this scenario X refers to blocked port. If cable between B-C is a fibre and just transmit or receive is down, block is removed. So that loop […]

ipv6 header

IPv6, which is invented by IETF consists of 128 bit and it is tought that will replace IPv4 in a few years. When IPv4 is invented, it wasn’t beleived that need for public ip addresses will increase rapidly and today, IPv4 addresses are about to finish. That is why IPv6 was invented by IETF. Because […]
