Designing a Serial port configuration using cisco packet tracer

  • Difficulty Level : Expert
  • Last Updated : 16 Nov, 2021

This article concerns the step-by-step designing of serial port configuration in cisco packet tracer using serial interfaces se0/0/0 or se0/0/1. In the end, it will also discuss how to check the network connectivity by transferring PDU’s between remote PCs.

Objectives:

  • To Configure serial port in cisco packet tracer using 2 routers and 2 PCs.
  • Simulation of Designed Network Topology.
  • To check the network connectivity by sending a simple PDU from PC0 to PC1.

Procedure:

Step1(Configuring Router0):

  1. Select an 1841 Router from Network Devices and drag and drop to the workspace.
  2. Select Router0 and Go to Physical.
  3. Switch off the PowerPoint of Router0 and then select the WIC-2T serial port connecter and establish a connection by placing it on the switch. After that turn on the PowerPoint of Router0.
  4. Select Router0 and Go to Config.
  5. Configure the FastEthernet0/0 by assigning IP address as 192.168.10.1 and subnet mask as 255.255.255.0 and turn on the port status
  6. Configure the Serial0/0/0 by assigning the IP address as 192.168.30.1 and subnet mask as 255.255.255.0 and turn on the port status.

Step2(Configuring Router1):

  1. Select an 1841 Router from Network Devices and drag and drop to the workspace.
  2. Select Router1 and Go to Physical.
  3. Switch off the PowerPoint of Router1 and then select the WIC-2T serial port connecter and establish a connection by placing it on the switch. After that turn on the PowerPoint of Router1.
  4. Select Router1 and Go to Config.
  5. Configure the FastEthernet0/0 by assigning the IP address as 192.168.40.1 and subnet mask as 255.255.255.0 and turn on the port status.
  6. Configure the Serial0/0/0 by assigning the IP address as 192.168.30.2 and subnet mask as 255.255.255.0 and turn on the port status.

Step3(Configuring PC0):

  1. Select a PC-PT type PC from End devices and drag and drop to the workspace.
  2. Select PC0 and go to FastEthernet0 in the config and assign an IP address and subnet mask for the PC0 as 192.168.10.2, 255.255.255.0 and turn on the port status.
  3. In config go to settings and assign Default gateway as 192.168.10.1

Step4(Configuring PC1):

  1. Select a PC-PT type PC from End devices and drag and drop to the workspace.
  2. Select PC1 and go to FastEthernet0 in the config and assign an IP address and subnet mask for the PC0 as 192.168.40.2, 255.255.255.0 and turn on the port status.
  3. In config go to settings and assign Default gateway as 192.168.40.1

Step5(Making connections):

  1. Connect PC0 with Router0 using copper cross-over wire.
  2. Connect Router0 with Router1 using DCE cable.
  3. Connect PC1 with Router1 using copper cross-over wire.
  4. To tell the routers about indirectly connected networks use the IP route command in CLI.
