Cabling methods

Unanswered Question
Feb 18th, 2007

Hi all

Can someone please tell me and confirm what cabling methods are used between certain devices regarding how the CCNA exam ask you, i.e switch to switch you would use a crossover. What are all the different setups?, switch-router, router-PC, switch-PC, etc

Also is there any difference using the console port on devices in what cabling you would use, is this a rollover cable!!!!

Thanks to all that respond

I have this problem too.

When to use crossover and straight cable:

DTE <-> DTE = Crossover

DCE <-> DCE = Crossover

DTE <-> DCE = Straight

Use a crossover cable to LIKE devices and use a straight cable to UNLIKE devices.

Console cable are the same for all devices, the only difference is their connector. There are 9 pin and there are 25 pin.
