Simple Cisco Packet Tracer Tutorial for Beginners

A. INTRODUCTION TO THE WINDOW OF CISCO PACKET TRACER

At this stage we will introduce windows on Cisco Packet Tracer, for more details see the image below:

That was the window on the Cisco packet tracer, starting from the width, menubar, toolbar, worksheet, devices (here are the tools used to simulate the network) and properties.

B.PENGERTIAN CISCO PACKET TRACER

CISCO PACKET TRACER is an e-learning tool created by Cisco that will simulate the workings of a network based on the topology and configuration applied by the user exactly as the original.

The advantage of using a Cisco packet tracer is that we can easily understand a network topology, and it is not so difficult to operate it. This software is suitable for students who want to learn about networking.

C. BUILDING CLIENT SERVER NETWORK

To build a client server network, we first prepare the devices, namely: prepare 1 client and 1 server and cable. The cable that we use is a CROSS cable. Then connect the CROSS cable to the Client and Server as below:

Then enter the Ip address on the client and server, the steps to enter the Ip address, that is, click on the Client or Server> Desktop> Ip Configuration. And enter the IP address:

IP CLIENT
IP SERVER

The next step is to test the connection by PING. The steps are as follows: click Client / Server> Desktop> Command Prompt> type ping “Destination IP address” without quotes and then press ENTER.

After the replay message appears as in the picture above, the network that we have created is successfully connected.

D. CONNECTING LAB A WITH LAB B

The devices we need to prepare to connect LAB A with LAB B are 6 Clients, 2 Switches and 1 Router and 8 straight cables. Then connect each device to form a topology build as below:

Then enter the Ip address on each Client in Lab A and in Lab B with the Ip client:

LAB A LAB B

  • 192.168.1.1 * 192.168.0.1
  • 192.168.1.2 * 192.168.0.2
  • 192.168.1.3 * 192.168.0.3

For how to enter it the same as we did before, namely click client> Desktop> Ip Configuration and enter the IP address.

After completing entering the IP address, we will set the Device Router which is still not active and cannot connect the two Labs. We try setting the fa 0/0 is 192.168.1.1 and fa 0/1 is 192.168.0.1

The trick is to click 2x on the router, go to the CLI tab

The commands are like this …

Initially there were questions, we typed “no” (without quotes)
then “enable”
then “configure terminal”
Interface fa 0/0 -> because we will set theashethernet to 0/0
Ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 -> setting ip address and subnet mask …
No shutdown
Exit -> exits interface 0/0
Exit -> exit the configure terminal
Write -> save
Exit -> exit the router
Now try configuring the router interface fa 0/1, the same way as above.

But the ip address is changed to 192.168.0.1 … The steps are from point B to J again …

After the router configuration is complete, the next step is to set GATEWAY for each computer. For example, I sample one for the first computer.

The entire computer is set up too, if it’s already done, try to ping again from computer 1 to computer 2 … pay attention to the following command prompt …

And the result is a replay, thus indicating that the network is successfully connected.
