Hi there. I notice in one of the departments in my school there is the switch with like 20 cables plugged in to them and there are the network cables plugged behind some of the computers in the ethernet port. I was told that there is no network there but I suspect that most of the work has been done already. Isn't creating a network just simply putting the wires into the switch and the computers and then configuring them or is there more to it than that? Is there any way I can test it on one of the systems if there is a network. I understand that ip addresses need to be configured but how do i do that. Also I hear that you need a server but is that true?
