CONFIGURING HTTP AND DNS SERVER


Hello friends! In my last post CCNA: UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HTTP SERVER I mentioned the steps to configure a HTTP server. If you have not read that post I will suggest you to read it first because you will no be able to get today’s post properly. In that post I use the term DNS server so let’s get it

WHAT IS DNS SERVER?

Every site has an ip address but we can’t remember ip address of each site, that’s why we give a name to it. For ex ip address of google.com is 172.217.26.206 but we just type google and get the desired result. This process of storing name of ip addresses is done by DNS server. In short a DNS server is used to store an ip address as a name.

Let’s understand it by using it

# open Cisco Packet Tracer Student

# now this time we will take 2 servers 1 switch and 1 computer

2 server, 1 switch and one pc

# connect the servers and the computer to the switch using automatically choose connection type

connect servers and pc to the switch

# now click on server which you want to make HTTP server

# click on services > http > on

http server

# now click on desktop > IP configuration

giving ip address to http server

# give an ip address let’s say 1.0.0.1 and press tab and subnet mask will be given automatically

Now as we are using DNS server we will also fill DNS address

# give DNS address let’s say 1.0.0.2

ip address + dns address

# click on another server which you want to make DNS server

# click on services > dns

# now give a name let’s say thevtech and write down it’s ip address that is 1.0.0.1

# click on add. Now address 1.0.0.1 has been added as thevtech

configuring dns server

# now click on desktop of that server and then on IP Configuration

set ip address of dns server

# give it ip address 1.0.0.2, press tab and subnet mask will be added automatically

# now give dns server as 1.0.0.2 because it is itself DNS server

ip address of dns server

# now  click on computer

# click on desktop > IP configuration

ip address of pc

# give it an ip address 1.0.0.3 and press tab subnet mask will be added automatically

ip address os computer

THAT’S IT

Here’s our connection is ready. And to test it follow the given steps…..

# click on computer

# click on browser

browser of the computer

# now in the address bar type thevtech and press enter

a web page

You will find a webpage

This is how we can configure HTTP server with DNS server. If you have any doubt in this section you can ask me through your comments.
