How to Configure a Network in Cisco Packet Tracer?

In the previous article, we explained what is Cisco Packet Tracer software. And then, we realized the steps to install Cisco Packet Tracer 7 on Windows 10. Once you have information about the use of simple tools to use Cisco Packet Tracer step by step. Then we can now perform basic network configurations.

In this article, we will perform how to create a network in Cisco Packet Tracer. After adding a Cisco router to the Packet Tracer workspace, we will perform two different network connections.

Our Recommendation; You can buy the Book of Packet Tracer Network Simulator which it is a good guide about the Cisco Packet Tracer…

How to Connect Two Networks in Cisco Packet Tracer?

Before you connect two networks in Cisco Packet Tracer, create a topology like the one shown below. You can add explanations to the Packet Tracer workspace to get a clearer view of IP addresses and Cisco router interfaces. This will ensure that you create the network topology more regularly.

   Step 1

Once you created the network topology on the Cisco Packet Tracer workspace, as shown in the following image, click once on the Cisco router to open the Cisco router interfaces.

   Step 2

On the Cisco router CLI window, we use the no shutdown command to enable Cisco interfaces. Apply the following commands in order to activate the GigabitEthernet 0/0 interface and give the Ip address.

Router>en
Router#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#interface gigabitEthernet 0/0
Router(config-if)#ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
Router(config-if)#no shutdown
Router(config-if)#
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface GigabitEthernet0/0, changed state to up
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface GigabitEthernet0/0, changed state to up

   Step 3

After configuring the Cisco router GigabitEthernet0 / 0 interface, the Cisco router interface will turn green. The green color interface means active and working.

   Step 4

Apply the following commands in order to activate the Cisco Router GigabitEthernet 0/1 interface and give the IP address.

Router(config)#
Router(config)#interface gigabitEthernet 0/1
Router(config-if)#ip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0
Router(config-if)#no shutdown
Router(config-if)#
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface GigabitEthernet0/1, changed state to up
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface GigabitEthernet0/1, changed state to up
Router(config-if)#end
Router#
%SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by console

   Step 5

As you can see in the following image, we can see that the interfaces connected to the switches are active on the Cisco router.

   Step 6

Now configure the computers on the topology. Once you click on PC0, the PC0 config window will open. From this window, click IP Configuration and give the IP address as shown in the following image.

PC0 is the default gateway, GigabitEthernet0/0 is the IP address of the Cisco Router…

   Step 7

On PC0, click on Command Prompt and then ping the default gateway of Cisco router Gig0/0.Bağlantı başarılı bir şekilde gerçekleşti.

   Step 8

You also configure the other PCs on the Cisco Packet Tracer. In the PC3 IP address configuration window, let’s assign 192.168.2.20 IP address.

Cisco Router GigabitEthernet0/1 interface refers to the 19.168.2.0/24 Ip block.

   Step 9

If we ping the GigabitEthernet0/1 interface via PC3, that is, the default gateway, we can see that the process is successful.

   Step 10

Likewise, if we ping the GigabitEthernet0/1 interface at 19.168.2.0/24 Ip block via PC0, we can see that the operation is successful.

   Step 11

It is ping process from PC0 to PC2 computer of 192.168.2.10 Ip address.

   Step 12

It is ping process from PC0 to PC3 computer of 192.168.2.20 Ip address.

   Step 13

At the Cisco Router CLI command prompt, we can see that the MAC addresses of the computers saved when we apply for the show arp command.

  Final Word

How to Configure a Network in Cisco Packet Tracer? – By configuring a simple network on the Cisco Packet Tracer, we configured the Cisco router interface configuration with commands. After giving the IP address to the computers on the workspace, we communicated two different networks.
