2 weeks to go!!

Well I have finished updating all of my network documentation to prepare for my departure from MPIA... Here is my network's logical map if that sort of thing interests you...

Now THAT looks fancier than my Visio maps. Which I've long since stopped doing.

What did you use, a special program, or are those plugins for Visio?

Also, are all those static IPs? Do you guys use DHCP at all? I assume the big pool is client desktops and such.

This is drawn with Paint Shop Pro version 9. I do have a small DHCP block for vendors who need access, but mainly I keep a static IP list. I'm pretty sure at Layne Christensen they use DHCP due to the considerably larger number of clients.

Yeah, it looks like you've got a lot more specialized equipment there, and not too much of the cookie cutter clients.

We use DHCP, with a few blocks reserved for servers and printers and anything else that needs to be static. For computers that need a static IP, I usually keep them on DHCP but use DHCP reservations (like for my own computers...I do some port forwarding at the firewall to them, but I like to keep them centrally managed).
