STEP 1: Small Internet Works

The following tutorials will lead you through creating a network simulation. You will first be creating the existing office network. Next, you will run the simulation of the current office network to get a baseline to compare the effects of the expansion. Then, you will create a second scenario that includes the expansion. You will run this simulation and compare the results of the expansion on the network with the current office network.

STEP 2: Screenshot

After completing the IT Guru Small Internetworks tutorial, take a screenshot using Ctrl + prtsc or another screen capture utility. Arrange the screen so that all items can be seen. The screen must contain the following:
• Final network configuration
• Graph of overlaid results of the server statistics
• Graph of the overlaid results of the global statistics
