Â·Watch a LinkedIn Learning video about firewalls:
Â·Watch another LinkedIn Learning video about device security:
Â·Watch yet another (yes, another) LinkedIn Learning video about TCP and UDP connections:
TCP and UDP from the course: CompTIA Network+ (N10-007) Cert Prep: 4 Making TCP/IP Work
Â·Research the terms: Firewall DMZ, Cisco ASA, Stateful Packet Inspection, Proxy Server
Help to secure the box.
Â·Search the internet for different firewall models and choose one that is appropriate for your project.
Â·Open up Packet Tracer and drop in your firewall. If you picked a model that is not available in the program, drop in something similar and give it the name of the model you have chosen.
Â·Configure the firewall as necessary.
oHint â€“ If you are offering any services outside of the internal network, you will want to configure the firewall to have a DMZ.
Â·Check your routing and ensure that things are still working! If services cannot pass through the firewall check to ensure that you have proper incoming and outgoing rules set.
Â·Update your configuration management report to show the changes to the network as needed.
oBe prepared to explain whether you think this is effective system administration or not.
For your task, submit the results from step 2.
Â·Submit the results from step 2 as your deliverable.
