Configuring the Initial Test Lab


To follow the steps in this procedure, you will need to configure five computers in a specific topology. Each computer in the lab has specific hardware and operating system requirements, which are specified in the following subsections.

To set up this test lab, you will need the following hardware and software:

  • Four computers that are capable of running members of the Windows Server 2003 family

    • One server must have two network adapters and a modem.

    • One server must have a floppy disk drive.

  • One computer that is capable of running Microsoft Windows XP Professional and that has a modem and a floppy disk drive

  • Two network hubs or Layer 2 switches

  • One operating system compact disc for Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition

  • Three operating system compact discs for Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition

  • One operating system compact disc for Windows XP Professional

Figure E-1 shows the network topology for this lab.

As shown in Figure E-1, one segment of the test lab network represents a corporate intranet and another segment represents the Internet. Connect all computers on the intranet segment to a common hub or Layer 2 switch. Connect all computers on the Internet segment to a separate common hub or Layer 2 switch.

The following subsections describe how you will set up the basic infrastructure. To reconstruct this test lab, configure the computers in the order presented. Additional sections of this appendix describe the specific configuration steps required for testing dial-up, PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, and EAP-TLS connections.
