CCNA Skills Integration Challenge

Posted by: admin  :  Category: CCNA

This lab is a provided to test your overall knowledge of CCNA routing, switching and wireless routing. It has been created with Cisco Packet Tracer but can also be completed with GNS3 or real hardware. This is a very advanced lab and will require an advanced understanding of all CCNA topics.


Learning Objectives:

  • Configure Frame Relay in a hub-and-spoke topology.
  • Configure PPP with CHAP and PAP authentication.
  • Configure static and dynamic NAT.
  • Configure static and default routing.


In this comprehensive CCNA skills activity, the XYZ Corporation uses a combination of Frame Relay and PPP for WAN connections. The HQ router provides access to the server farm and the Internet through NAT. HQ also uses a basic firewall ACL to filter inbound traffic. Each Branch router is configured for inter-VLAN routing and DHCP. Routing is achieved through EIGRP as well as static and default routes. The VLANs, VTP, and STP are configured on each of the switched networks. Port security is enabled and wireless access is provided. Your job is to successfully implement all of these technologies, leveraging what you have learned over the four Exploration courses leading up to this culminating activity.

You are responsible for configuring HQ and the Branch routers, B1, B2, and B3. In addition, you are responsible for configuring every device that attaches to the network through a Branch router. The NewB router represents a new Branch office acquired through a merger with a smaller company. You do not have access to the NewB router. However, you will establish a link between HQ and NewB to provide this new Branch office with access to the internal network and the Internet.

Routers and switches under your administration have no configuration. None of the basic configurations like hostname, passwords, banners, and other general maintenance commands are graded by Packet Tracer and will not be part of the task specification. However, you are expected to configure them, and your instructor may choose to grade these commands.

Because this activity uses such a large network with close to 500 required components under the assessment items, you will not necessarily see your completion percentage increase each time you enter a command. In addition, you will not be given a specific percentage that should be complete at the end of each task. Instead, you use connectivity tests to verify each task’s configurations. However, at any time you can click Check Results to see if a particular component is graded and if you configured it correctly.

Because the Branch routers (B1, B2, and B3) and switches are designed with scalability in mind, you can reuse scripts. For example, your configurations for B1, B1-S1, B1-S2, and B1-S3 can be directly applied to the B2 devices with only minor adjustments.

What is 8 + 2 ?
Please leave these two fields as-is:
IMPORTANT! To be able to proceed, you need to solve the following simple math (so we know that you are a human) :-)
