IPv4 Network Topology Scenario

Figure 5–1 shows the hosts of a fictitious network with the network number 192.9.200. The network has one network configuration server, which is called sahara. Hosts tenere and nubian have their own disks and run in local files mode. Host faiyum also has a disk, but this system operates in network client mode.

Finally, the system timbuktu is configured as a router. The system includes two network interfaces. The first interface is named timbuktu. This interface belongs to network 192.9.200. The second interface is named timbuktu-201. This interface belongs to network 192.9.201. Both networks are in the organizational domain The domain uses local files as its name service.
