Here is a small task that illustrates how combining a few technologies may result in interesting solution.
Configure R1 to send all logging messages to the remote server at the IP address “10.0.0.100″. Ensure secure (non-cleartext) and reliable (acknowledged) information delivery.
DO NOT USE:
1) TCP as the transport protocol.
2) IPsec for encryption.
3) Any tunneling technology.
Recent update: do not use BEEP. This seems to be ruled out by “don’t use TCP”, but worths being mentioned separately. The solutions is supposed to be a “bit” more complicated
For simplicity, assume the server to be directly connected to the router via Ethernet. Also, assume the server could be configured in any way to match the router’s configuration.
The first person to find the correct solution would win a 100$ Amazon.com gift card. Since tomorrow is a big holiday in the US, we will post the solution and announce the winner somewhere around the coming weekend.
Have a nice Thanksgiving!
OK, it looks like I’m getting old after all The solution has been found a few hours after I actually made the post! The Winner is: Carl Burkland. Congratulaitons! He was the first to post a working solution. I’m disclosing the comments right now, so you can see other people who came with correct solutions or bright ideas after Carl. Also, see some explanations and comments below.
