Background / Scenario

In this activity, you will configure basic server components. The IP addressing configuration is already complete. You will use the Services tab on multiple servers to deploy FTP, Web, Email, DNS, NTP, and AAA services.

Part 1: Configure the FTP Server

Step 1: Activate the FTP Service.

  1. Click the Metropolis Bank HQ and then click the FTP/Web server.
  2. Click the Services tab and then click FTP.
  3. Turn on the FTP service using the radial button at the top.

Step 2: Allow users’ access to the FTP server.

  1. Create user account names of bob, mary, and mike, each with the password of cisco123.
  2. Each user account should have full permissions (RWDNL) on the FTP/Web server.

Part 2: Configure the Web Server

Step 1: Activate the HTTP Service.

  1. Within the Metropolis Bank HQ, click the FTP/Web server.
  2. Click the Services tab and then click HTTP.
  3. Turn on both the HTTP and HTTPS services using the radial buttons at the top.

Step 2: Verify the HTTP Service.

  1. Click the PC named Sally, and click the Desktop tab.
  2. Click the Web Browser. Browse to the website www.cisco.corp.
  3. Within the Web Browser, browse to the IP 10.44.1.254.

Why would a user be able to browse to an IP address but not a FQDN?

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The web browser does not know IP address without DNS to translate the domain name to the IP address.

Part 3: Configure the DNS Server

Step 1: Activate the DNS Service.

  1. Within the Metropolis Bank HQ, click the Email/DNS server.
  2. Click the Services tab and then click DNS.
  3. Turn on the DNS service using the radial button at the top.

Step 2: Create the DNS A records.

  1. Create the A record email.cisco.corp with IP address 10.44.1.253. Click Add to save the record.
  2. Create the A record www.cisco.corp with IP address 10.44.1.254. Click Add to save the record.

Step 3: Verify the DNS Service.

  1. Click the PC named Sally, and click the Desktop tab.
  2. Click the Web Browser. Browse to the website www.cisco.corp.

Why is the user able to browse to an FQDN?

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The DNS server translated the domain name to the associated IP address so the web browser can understand it.

Part 4: Configure the Email Server

Step 1: Activate the Email Services.

  1. Within the Metropolis Bank HQ, click the Email/DNS server.
  2. Click the Services tab and then click on EMAIL.
  3. Turn on both the SMTP and POP3 services using the radial buttons at the top.

Step 2: Create Email accounts for users.

  1. Create the domain name of cisco.corp.
  2. Create user account names of phil, sally, bob, dave, mary, tim and mike, each with the password of cisco123.

Step 3: Configure user Email clients.

  1. Click the PC named Sally, and click the Desktop tab.
  2. Click Email and enter the following information:
    Name: Sally
    Email Address: [email protected]
    Incoming & Outgoing Email Server(s): email.cisco.corp
    Username: sally
    Password: cisco123
  3. Repeat Step 3b on the PC named Bob but replace the name sally with bob as needed.
    Why does the Email service require both SMTP and POP3 to be activated?________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    SMTP is the protocol responsible for sending emails between servers, and POP is a protocol used by local email clients to retrieve emails from a server.

  1. Within the Metropolis Bank HQ, click the NTP/AAA server.
  2. Click the Services tab and then click AAA.
  3. Turn on the AAA service using the radial button at the top.
