Importance of The Packet Tracer

Packet Tracer

Packet tracer is developed by cisco systems that allow users to create or build different network structures or computer networks. It is used as a simulator in cisco environment routers and switches.

Below are some steps for physical setup: Once the Packet Tracer download and have it introduced on your PC. Open the program and select the switch from the lower left-hand corner, and drag it into the focal point of the sandbox screen as observed beneath.

Packet Tracer Router Configuration

We will set up a system that permits two PCs to talk to each other, so the next stage is to choose end gadgets from the down left-hand corner and drag it to the screen. Do this twice to cause two PCs to show up down the router. Presently select associations from a similar base left-hand corner. At the point when you associate like-devices(Such as a router and PC) you utilize a crossover, so you should choose a copper cross cable from the second menu to the right side. Click on Router0, and connect the link by  FastEthernet0/0

Presently click the PC0 and choose FastEthernet. You will see a connection is set up, which is not practical. You can guess by the red dots that are available on the two parts of the connection. When the router is arranged accurately, the red dots will go green. Do the same thing to PC1, just this time interface the link to FastEthernet0/1 since FastEthernet0/0 is taken by PC0.

Designing the router in packet tracer

A router that is switched off doesn’t work well finally. Snap-on your router to raise the design menu and check that it is turned on. When on there will be a little green light down the router.

Next, we need to open the Ethernet ports to permit. In spite, hat they are genuinely associated, they are in an express that is known as being administratively closed down. Presently click on the CLI tab to get to the arrangement menu. On the off chance that you’ve utilized the Cisco IOS previously, you will see it looks and acts a similar way.

  1. Press RETURN to start the thing.
  2. Enable in privilege mode
  3. Type config terminal
  4. Type interface fastethernet0/0 to get to Ethernet0/0
  5. Type IP address to allow an IP address and subnet mask to the interface.
  6. Finally give no shutdown command.

You should now see this message

%LINEPROTO-5-UP DOWN: Line convention on Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed state to up.
