Hi, This diagram is not for a real network as Im only practising using my knowledge on paper and do plan on practically setting this up at home via my 'Netgear router' as per diagram for practical experience not only from Cisco point of view but adding Win 2003 & Windows 2008 dns, dhcp etc and installing OS over the network, knowing that I have this time created a Network from scratch..!!
Qns.1 With the equipment I have and the specific ports available Ive created a Network diagram based around testing HSRP as I think it can only use 2 different subnets..?
Also Although I understand a 3 switch triangle ie root bridge, designated & root port etc. Ive never connected switches together via a router as always just used as a 'hub' and no vlans when practising installing OS Pxe & ip helper-address via Win 2003 over network for practise..!
Qns2. Can someone advise on where Ive added the Vtp Server & Client root 4096 secondary 8192 & client 32768 with relevant 'root & designated ports' if they are correct or not - ?
Qns3. Is there any other way of providing some other 'Fault-tolerance' specific to my hardware ?
