I'm studying for my CCNA exam and I have to create a VLSM scheme using RIP-2 for the following requirements:
(this is an exercise)
Use the class C network 192.168.1.0 network for your point-to-point connections
Using the Class A network 10.0.0.0, plan for the following number of hosts in each location: New York: 1000 Chicago: 500 Los Angeles: 1000
On the LAN and point-to-point connections, select subnet masks that use the smallest ranges of IP addresses possible given the above requirements.
In all cases, use the lowest possible subnet numbers. Subnet zero is allowed.
My guess is the following:
New York: S0/0 192.168.1.1 /24 Fa0/0 10.1.0.1 netmask 255.255.248.0 - because we need 1000 hosts
Chicago: S0/0 192.168.1.2 /24 Fa0/0 10.2.0.1 netmask 255.255.252.0 (for 500 hosts)
Los Angeles: S0/0 192.168.2.3 /24 Fa0/0 10.3.0.1 netmask 255.255.248.0 (for 1000 hosts)
Is this a good configuration? I'm reading the CCNA book but not everything is very clear, so I said to do some exercises...
