Hello friends! Wish you happy new year
Friends in my last post CONNECTING 2 COMPUTERS USING A SWITCH I mentioned the steps to connect 2 computers with a switch in my today’s post I will mention the steps to connect 3 computers with the help of a switch and a DHCP server.
WHAT IS DHCP SERVER ?
DHCP server is a server which provides ip address to our computer
So let’s start and connect 3 computers with the help of a switch and a DHCP server.
# open Cisco Packet Tracer Student (it’s a software to learn ccna practicals)
# now take 3 computers , a switch and a server
# now connect 3 computers and the server to the switch using automatically choose connection type wire
# now click on server
# click on services > DHCP
# and select on
# now in server click on desktop > IP configuration
# now give a ip address let’s say 188.8.131.52 and press tab and the subnet mask will be added automatically
# now click on any computer
# go to desktop > IP configuration
# and now select DHCP, you will find that the computer has got it’s ip address automatically
# repeat the same procedure in other two computers
This is how you can connect computers using a DHCP server. The biggest advantage of having DHCP server is that you don’t need to give ip address to each of the device.
