Step 1:Draw the above diagram and arrange the device as it is and configure FTP server.

This username and password will be used to login ftp server.

Step2: Assign ip address on router interface and enable port configure enable password or telnet whatever you want to configure.

Router>enable

Router#configure terminal

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Router(config)#interface FastEthernet0/0

Router(config-if)#ip address 1.0.0.1 255.0.0.0

Router(config-if)#no shutdown

Step 3:configure enable password or telnet and even more whatever you want to configure.

Router(config-if)#exit
 Router(config)#enable password redhat
 Router(config)#line vty 0 4
 Router(config-line)#password telnet123
 Router(config-line)#login
 Router(config-line)#exit
 Router(config)#exit
