I bought a bunch of cisco equipment for a project and I got 1 PIX firewall 2 switches and 2 routers
This is my plan for a topology but I am new at this so I need help. I am basing this off the illustration on the ethicalhacker.com "rant about hack labs" article here
I would like it if my attacker machine wasn't connected, but I can always make exceptions. Also, I can always switch up connections when I'm not doing certain scenarios. here are 2 topologies I based around that illustration:
Switch 1 -> router 1 -> switch 2 -> more servers
Switch 1 -> firewall 1 -> switch 2 -> exploitable web server
I want to simulate a "realistic" network layout, and also a "realistic" web setup.
I know I have something messed up, please guide me.
Feel free to yell and shout, as long as it helps me in some way to improve this.
ANY help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
edit: My god...the whole cable set up is ridiculous! I need all sorts of console cables and also adapters to plug it in my computer. Mmm more money to spend.
