Hello friends! In my last post EVERYTHING ABOUT CCNA YOU SHOULD KNOW I mentioned some of the basic details of CCNA and it’s use. From today’s post I wil start the basics of CCNA and we will start from very basic that is by connecting 2 computers using a switch, so let’s start

To connect 2 computers using a switch follow the given steps…..

# open Cisco Packet Tracer Student (it’s a software to learn ccna practicals)

# now take one switch and 2 computers

switch and computers

# now connect switch to both computers with automatically choose connection type wire

aotomatically choose connection type

It will take around 30 seconds for the connection to take place, when you find that both the ports have turn green it means that they are connected.

Now it’s time to give ip-address to both the computers so that they can recognse each other’s address. To give ip address follow the given steps…..

# click on the computer

# click on desktop > ip configuration

give ip address

# now give it an ip address let’s say 1.0.0.1 and press tab, you will find that subnet mask is added to it automatically.

In my further posts I will tell you about what kind of ip address can be given with what subnet mask

# follow the same procedure in 2nd computer. But remember that it must be in same series.

For ex it could be any thing from 1.0.0.2 to 1.0.0.254 and nothing else. Why?  That we will learn soon

THAT’S IT

Now both the computers are connected to each other. To check click on the box looking like an envelope and transfer message from one computer to another. You will find that message is successfully send.
