CCNA: Cross Over Cable vs 255.255.255.0 (subnet mask)
Posted on 2009-07-13
1) This is related to the CCNA exam.
2) At one of the prep test, there is a case like this:
- Two PCs can get connection each other by using the Cross Over Cable or using the Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
3) My questions: i) Could you explain why using the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 (and i believe, it is still using the Straight cable instead of Cross Over Cable) would be able to connect the above two PCs?, ii) Is there any relationship between the Cross Over Cable and the Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0
4) Thank you
