How to Configure End Devices on Packet Tracer?
End devices are the source and destination devices, which are used for data sent over any internet network. In order to determine one end device from another, each end device on a network is determined by an address. When an end device starts communication, it uses the address of the destination end device to determine where the message should be transmitted.
To know more about end devices you can refer to the article: Network Devices (Hub, Repeater, Bridge, Switch, Router, Gateways, and Brouter).
Steps to Configure and Setup End Devices in Cisco Packet Tracer:
Step 1: First, open the Cisco packet tracer desktop and select the devices given below:
IP Addressing Table
|S.NO||Device||IPv4 Address||Subnet Mask|
- Then, create a network topology as shown below the image.
- Use an Automatic connecting cable to connect the devices with others.
Step 2: Configure the PCs (hosts) and server with IPv4 address and Subnet Mask according to the IP addressing table above.
- To assign an IP address in PC0, click on PC0.
- Then, go to desktop and IP configuration and there you will find IPv4 configuration.
- Fill IPv4 address and subnet mask.
- Similarly, repeat the same procedure with PC1 and server0 to configure them thoroughly.
- Also, we can Assign an IP address using the ipconfig command, or we can also assign an IP address with the help of a command.
- Go to the command terminal of the PC.
- Then, type ipconfig <IPv4 address><subnet mask><default gateway>(if needed)
Example: ipconfig 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0
Step 3: Verify the connection by pinging the IP address of any host in PC0.
- Use the ping command to verify the connection.
- We will check if we are getting any replies or not.
- Here we get replies from a targeted node on both PCs. So, the connection is verified.
Step 4: Verifying the server by using a web browser in PC1
- As we can see the server is working is very fine and it showing the results.
Step 5: Shut down the FastEthernet port 0/1 with a switch using the shutdown command.
