Network Architecture: Switches

June 12, 2017

Working at client’s space today, setting up their internal network from the ground up.
Learned a few things today:

Wall –> Router –> Managed Switch –> Unmanaged Switches (subnets) –> End Users

Managed:

- can control individual ports
- set static/dynamic ips
- sniff traffic

Also learned about a new (for me) community:

Similar to HN but more for security and reverse engineering.
