Updateing Home Network
- Configure NTP
- Configure MD5 authentication
- Configure bandwidth and clock rate
After watching the free CCNA videos on ine.com I found that WIC-1T had a max speed of 2.048 Mbps.
I therefore had to re-configured my EIGRP bandwidth and DCE clock rate speeds to reflect the correct cable speed. I thought i'd might as well add MD5 authentication while I was at it, which involved connecting my routers to an NTP server.
Configure NTP server
The command ntp server will allow you to specifiy a hostname or an IP address of your selected NTP server. In this case I have used a public NTP server.
This is important when configuring my MD5 authentication, as it will look for times and dates for when keys start and expire.
