Have you encountered such thing in packet tracer?

    I have seen something foolish. Im not able to attach a server directly to the router. Thought the reason why
    searched about it then i met you can close this gap by putting a switch between them. How stupid!

    even more foolish is that you were probably trying to connect using a straight through cable rather than cross-over cable :) The reason the switch works is that you use a straigh through cable for both server to switch and router to switch connections. You require cross-over cable for switch to switch and router to router and also PC/Server to router.

    You really should go back to basics. Your starting to make a mockery of the CCNA.

    You are always pessimistic and i imagine you do this deliberately. No, i won't defend myself anymore cos
    you are driving me crazy in such behaviours.

    How dare would you imagine i do not know which cable to use for which connections?:eek:

    Em, you're the one that said you needed a switch to connect the server to the router, which is not true (as long as you use a cross-over cable).

    Why does anyone bother responding to this troll? You are wasting your time - move along and just ignore it.

    By this you must mean that you do not have a network lead long enough to reach from the server to the router. If this is the case you can do a number of thing. Buy a longer network lead, make a network lead long enough for the job or put a switch in the way. I was under the impression that modern switches/router would automatically sense whether the network lead was crossed over or straight through, so long as this has not been turned off on the router.

    Kobem, if you are not getting the answers that you are expecting, then perhaps you need to reword the question. I know English is not your first language, but sometimes you may need to review what you have put so people can help you.

    No. Explain where i am misunderstanding you.

    He mentions doing this in Packet Tracer rather than physically trying to connect server to a router....

    I just checked with Packet Tracer v5.3 and I was able to get the server connected to an 1841 with a cross-over cable, it is more acceptable to have it go to a switch before the router but in a pinch for a lab it would work but wouldn't be good for a real-world situation.

    Yes, but alot of companies plug a firewall straight into the router, and then the firewall has a trunk connection to the switches, so you would come accross quite often. I do :p
