Abstract [en]

I have worked on my examination project at Turnhill AB [1], Skellefteå. The purpose of the project was to document the network, to tidy up among the network cables in the network room, and to come up with two solutions for a VPN-solution.In the documenting phase I first encountered problems when trying to figure out which devices were plugged in to which ports of the firewall and switch. However, this was solved with time and patience. To simplify this process for future changes, I made two documents, one of which explains what devices are plugged in to which ports on the firewall/switch, and the other explains where the cables plugged in to the patch panel are plugged in to the firewall/switch. With future updates of these lists when changes are made, there should not be any trouble keeping the network neat and tidy.In my research for suitable VPN-solutions I stumbled upon the freeware Logmein Hamachi, which satisfied the needs by far. In consultation with my supervisor we chose to implement it, which did not cause any trouble. For this solution to be available when I am not longer accessible, I made an installation guide so that the employees of the company can use it on their own.When I was to tidy up among the cables I replaced some of the poor cables and shortened some with the help of cable ties, and I also used those to fix the cables in a neat fashion.My conclusions while working on this project were that if Turnhill were to expand their network they will need more switches. Also, if expansion is relevant there should be a reorganization of the cables in the firewall/switch ports, since the network does not look organized at this moment.
