One computer four routers and a switch

Hi All,

I'm trying to establish some communication among 4 routers and a switch to practice but my PC only support 3 commports. Can a hub do the trick? if so how?

Thanking you all in advance for your usual supports.

Hi,

Why do you need this number of com ports ?

Console into each one initialy to set it up then telnet or ssh to the others in order to manage them.

Re: One computer four routers and a switch

Hi,

As Paul has stated, you can login to each one sequentially and do the initial configuration then you can telnet allover them, there is no critical need to have concurrent console access to all of them during the initial setup, but anyway one of the practical ways to have console to all the devices is to use a cisco router as a terminal server (this can be a legacy 2509).
