CSC 249 HW 6 Due Oct 31, 2014 CHAPTER 4 Problems Problem 1 Consider a router that interconnects three subnets: Subnet 1, Subnet 2, and Subnet 3. Suppose all of the interfaces in each of these three subnets are required to have the prefix You are the network administrator, and have decided that Subnet 1 is required to support at least 60 interfaces, Subnet 2 is to support at least 90 interfaces, and Subnet 3 is to support at least 12 interfaces. Provide three network addresses (of the form a.b.c.d/x) that satisfy these constraints. (To do this you will define the new, appropriate value for ‘x’ and the associated value of ‘d’ in the a.b.c.d/x address format. Problem 2 Consider a datagram network using 32-bit host addresses. Suppose a router has four
links, numbered 0 through 3, and packets are to be forwarded to the link interfaces as
Destination Address Range
Link Interface
11100000 00000000 00000000 00000000
11100000 00111111 11111111 11111111
11100000 01000000 00000000 00000000
11100000 01000000 11111111 11111111

a) Provide a forwarding table that has five entries, uses longest prefix matching, and
forwards packets to the correct link interfaces.
b) Describe how your forwarding table determines the appropriate link interface for
datagrams with destination addresses:
11001000 10010001 01010001 01010101
11100001 01000000 11000011 00111100
11100001 10000000 00010001 01110111 Problem 3 In Section 4.2.2 an example of a forwarding table (using longest prefix matching) is given. Rewrite this forwarding table using the a.b.c.d/x notation instead of the binary string notation. CSC 249 HW 6 Due Oct 31, 2014 Problem 4 Consider the network shown below. a) Using Dijkstra’s algorithm, and showing your work using a table similar to Table 4.3 and class examples, compute the shortest path from D to all network nodes. b) Write out the forwarding table for node D, using the information in the table you just created. B 3 5 D A 10 7 1 E C 2 Problem 5 Consider the network shown below, and assume that each node initially knows the costs to each of its neighbors. a) Consider the distance-­‐vector algorithm and show the distance table entries at node z. It should take you 4 or so iterations to settle to the final table, starting with many of the distances set to ∞ (as they are unknown initially), and stopping when no further updates exist. b) Create the forwarding table for node z.
