Cisco IP Phone Testing

Hello Experts,

I have configured a sample Cisco IP Phone Lab network as shown in the attached PDF. I have also attached my configs - the only difference between the lab and my configs are the interfaces..

I was wondering if someone could tell me how would I go about actually testing the lab without actual IP Phones? Basically, I need to simulate the phone traffic to determine that the lab is actually workig but don't know how.

Also, a section of the lab in task 4 states the following:

Configure switch DLS2 to forward DHCP requests to servers 192.168.1.254 and 192.168.2.254

However, wouldn't it be better if the helper-address pointed to DLS1 on 100.1.1.1? Don't understand why the author of the lab suggested 192.168.2.254 and 192.168.1.254

Thanks in advance for your help

Cheers

Carlton

BTW, feel free to comment on the lab as you see fit.

Well, the task is clear, only it doesn't really make sense... That said, on a real Cisco lab, you have to implement the given tasks, not what you think would be optimal.

You could use a small cisco switch to receive the voice tagged link from the ALS, and provide an untagged port with the voice vlan for a PC, possibly with a softphone.
