Re: [K12OSN] Connection question - Server and Client



Most switches (and hubs) now have an "uplink" port on them, which is nothing more than one of the regular ports wired as a cross-over. If you are using this port, you do not have the use of the adjacent port, as it is the same port, wired straight. In this way, you can just use patch cables for everything.

OK -- I know that you use a crossover to link two switches together (in fact,
I didn't know that it had changed recently), but the original question was
about connecting his computers to the hub/switch after he bought one.  As far
as I know (no A+ cert) that still is a no go.
