The results of your solution should closely match that of the attached picture. 


  • You may not modify the IP Address or subnet mask of any interface
  • You may not create any new interfaces, or connect existing ones.
  • You may not enable any routing protocol.
  • Do not add any static routes.
  • Your results should closely match the attached picture.
  • Your solution should allow for running RIP over this connection in the future.
