The exercises give some practical experience in using the concepts that you have learned in the TELE9752 lectures.

These exercises start by focusing on the switches and then shift focus to the load balancer. They involve loading configuration files into the devices by using TFTP, and then observing how the devices behave using either Wireshark or Remote Monitoring.

Before starting the exercises you should read about the Equipment that you will be using (which also describes how to book a time to use the equipment) and ensure that you have the necessary Software on your computer. You should do the exercises in the order shown in the table, since some exercises depend on techniques explained in preceding exercises. The exercises link to forms in which you can record your results for assessment. There is no mechanism to update results once you have submitted them, but you can submit results multiple times, and we will assume that the last submission is the one that you wish to have assessed.

If you have a problem with an exercise, then describe your problem in a comment on the page describing the exercise. State the digit(s) of your student number that are relevant to the exercise so that troubleshooters can determine exactly what you were (or, at least, should have been) trying to do.

Note that the numbering of steps in each exercise often resets to 1 part-way through the exercise, especially after a table or figure appears. Please leave a comment on this page if you know how to fix that problem.
