Ok, so i have used linux based labs to practice network hacking for a while now. But now i want to build a virtual network that will emulate a windows enterprise network, i currently have set up a DC/DNS server a web server i intend to put vulnerable asp web apps on i also set up a SMB share server all in Windows 2003 R2 and i will add clients varying from XP SP3 to Windows 7 and vista (to simulate the ever changing landscape of a large network) i will add Cisco IOS gns3 vms and i may add a UC/VOIP system running traffic generation scripts. My question is what other services or network appliances should i add to make this as realistic a lab as possible, keep in mind that while i can run VMs of alot of things i am on a student budget so alot of hardware components are not available to me. Thanks in advance for what ever advice you may give.
where did all the fun go?
