- I configured 2 routers
- connected routers to a switch (Configured)
connected laptop and PC to get a small working LAN.
-setup wireshark on a PC
-telnetted from pc to router and viewed the Plaintext data captured using wireshark.
-also used wireshark to collect plaintext between 2 machines on the lan using MSN messenger.
Although all this was rather basic, i was quite impressed with what i had done/learned. and the small problems i discovered along the way provided good real-life hands on education:
-Didnt set exec password but set telnet, therefore locking me out router -Having to break into a 2950 switch which someone previously set up with a username/password)
the problem is now im running out of ideas, any ideas of any other data i could try sniffing or any other labs i can perform with this kind of setup?
I was thinking of experimenting with NMAP and other software which could allow me to exploit vunrubilities found within the NMAP scan but this will be another milestone
