How to configure EIGRP routing protocol on CISCO routers?


CCNA

EIGRP is a distance vetor routing protocol that is based on IGRP. It is also known as hybrid routing protocol because it has characteristics of both Distance and Link state routing protocol. EIGRP offer load balancing across six paths (equal or unequal). Now we’ll take a lab to understand this.

Fascinating facts about Administrative distance in Routers


CCNA

This article is about some important known facts about the Administrative distance which is used by routers to choose a path for sending a packet from one router to another router. Many of the routing protocols have metric structures and algorithms which are not compatible with other routing protocols.

How to configure Servers(DHCP, DNS, HTTP) along with the routers.


CCNA

Configuring servers along with switches is quite easy as compared to configuring servers along with routers (as we learnt in the previous article). Because along with switches servers and routers are on the same network but here in this configuration servers and users are on the different networks.

Learn binary conversion of IPv4 in dotted-decimal notation using some examples


CCNA

In IPv4, addresses are 32-bit binary numbers. However, for ease of use by people, binary patterns representing IPv4 addresses are expressed as dotted decimals. This is accomplished by separating each byte of the 32-bit binary pattern, called an octet, with a dot. It is called so because each decimal number represents 8 bits.

How to configure LACP (Link Aggregation or Ether Channel) on CISCO switches


CCNA

The term link aggregation applies to various methods of combining multiple network connections in parallel in order to increase throughput and also use to provide redundancy in case one of the links fail. A LAG combines a number of physical ports together to make a single high-bandwidth data path.

How to configure PAgP (Port Aggregation Protocol) on cisco switches


CCNA

Port Aggregation Protocol is a cisco system proprietary networking protocol, which is used for automated, logical aggregation of Ethernet switch ports, known as EtherChannel. A limitation of port aggregation protocol is that all the physical ports in the aggregation group must reside on the same switch.
