Net 1 Lab 7

Ian Reese
Lab 7: Subnetting

Objectives: Get a working network set up with subnets.

Notes and Observations:

We used 3 routers for this lab so we used 3 bits to be used for the subnet because we wanted room for additional routers. Since our IP was, we were using a class B network. So since we wanted 3 bits borrowed and were using a class B network, our mask was We had 4 subnetworks which we gave the ip of,,, and Once we worked those out we laid out what the ips were going to be for each device. We successfully mapped out a plan for our network, so then we began configuring our routers appropriately. We had some issues with one of the computers configuring the routers so we ended up only configuring one router total.

Questions: No questions were asked on this week’s lab.

Conclusions: Even though we didn’t completely set up the network, we learnt how to configure routers to the map that was created before hand.

Net 1 Lab 6

Ian Reese
Lab 6: Web & FTP Servers
Lab partner: Jon

Objectives: Using Apache and Filezilla, install a webserver, create a homepage, and set up a FTP page for your partner to view and use as a test.

Notes and Observations:

First we downloaded and started up Apache. Once it was set up, we typed in localhost to see our own page:


Apparently I forgot to take pictures of my webpage and Jon’s once we made our HTML files and transferred them over into the folder. But we did manage to connect to one another’s webpages successfully.

After we had created our homepages, we started up Filezilla and set up FTP accounts for one another to use on our page. We had a few hiccups, which were mostly sorted out with disabling the firewall, but we managed to completely work it out on our own. Unfortunately I didn’t take too many good pictures to show the steps, but here is the end result which is Jon sending a file called “New Document.txt” over to me through the FTP I set up:


Questions: There were no questions corresponding to this week’s lab.

Conclusions: We successfully created a web server, homepage, and FTP page.
