- Zero-configuration networking (zeroconf) is a set of technologies that automatically creates a usable computer network based on the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) when computers or network peripherals are interconnected. It does not require manual operator intervention or special configuration servers.
- At this point in the semester, you should be confident in your understanding of Cisco IOS, routing protocols, etc., to complete Lab-04 (OSPF, Serial, DHCP), using only the network diagram as your guide, with 100% accuracy, in less than 30 minutes.
- If that’s not the case, then you must practice, practice, practice, to gain the necessary skills and confidence.
- Practice makes improvement.

- VLANs 1002 through 1005 are automatically created and cannot be deleted

- A Stub router, One-armed router or Router on a Stick (RonS) is a router configured to route traffic between virtual local area networks (VLANs).
- It has only a single Ethernet NIC that is part of two or more Virtual LANs, enabling them to be joined.
- The physical interface is divided into logical interfaces (known as sub-interfaces), one for each VLAN, configured as trunk interfaces.

- A Switch Virtual Interfaces (SVI) represents a logical Layer 3 interface on a switch.
- VLANs divide broadcast domains in a LAN environment. Whenever hosts in one VLAN need to communicate with hosts in another VLAN, the traffic must be routed between them. This is known as inter-VLAN routing. On Layer 3 switches it is accomplished by the creation of Layer 3 interfaces (SVIs).
