A corporation has two domain system servers (DNS), one web server, and SMTP server.

The webserver and SMTP server are needed to communicate with Internet.

For security purposes, web access to SMTP and DNS servers are denied. The DNS servers should communicate only with each other and the Internet.

For this network, you are required to implement the following Layer 2 and Layer 3 services:

  • Implement a switch to switch connectivity using Trunking and aggregating links
  • Implement a PVLAN solution hosting DNS WWW and SMTP servers
  • For security implement VACL and PACL in Critical Subnet
  • Provide a verification plan for the above solution

Provide a technical proposal that addresses all issues described above.

The proposal should contain:

  • Cover page
  • Index Page
  • Executive summary
  • Technical details (including any assumptions)
  • Conclusion
  • Reference page
