This course looks at routers up close with Windows Server 2003 and will show you everything you need to know to get started configuring, routing, and ensuring security on your network. This course is designed for beginners familiar with Windows Server 2003, but is also a helpful course for more experienced users wanting to enhance their routing knowledge.
Scott's passion for technology and education started after he attended a network engineering program and passed his first certification test to become a Novell CNA. From here, Scott went on to teach at several technical computer schools where he realized that the IT training industry was flawed, not giving students their best chance for success. With a strong belief in his ability to develop better training with methodology-based learning for real world skills, TrainSignal was born in 2002. TrainSignal grew to over 50 employees before being acquired by Pluralsight in 2013.
Lab Setup Welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching the Windows 2003 Lab Setup video for Mega Lab 9, configuring routers, routing protocols and packet filters for Green Lizard Books, Inc. The goal of this video is to make sure that you're comfortable setting up your Windows 2003 network. Let's take a look at our network diagram and go over some of the configurations that we're going to be seeing. Now when we look at this diagram, it's very similar to what we saw in Windows 2000. As a matter of fact, we're going to have almost identical settings. One thing that will change are the computer names, but these are only going to change slightly. Our Windows 2003 computer names will just be 2003-SRV-11, -SRV-1, and -SRV-12. The networks, the IP addresses, all of this will remain the same. So what we're going to do is we're going to form a remote desktop connection over to each one of these machines, and we're going to take a look at how they're set up and the configurations that each one of these machines have.
