connect computers

[b][red]This message was edited by Redferrine at 2004-6-9 22:22:52[/red][/b][hr]
Hi,

I have 2 workstations and i wanted to connect them both. I wanted the other one to contain Oracle Database which will serve as the server and the other for VB programming. I do not know networking... What are the things that i must have to connect this two?

I am considering buying a hub and twisted wire pair cable. Both of my workstations have LAN Card in it.

How do i start?

Thanks!

I also would like to ask if a crossover cable could do for database accessing instead of me buying a hub. If this is not possible, I have seen an Ethernet Unmanaged which is not the 10/100Mps, would this work?

will really appreciate.

    I know almost nothing on networking, but if all you want is to connnect the two computers you shouldn't need a hub - uless you want internet access between the two - I'm pretty sure it is possible to network directly between the two computers. I would also post you question on the hardware forums - they may have a better idea.

    A cross-over cable is all you need if the computers are reasonably close to each other. If more than two computers you will need to use a hub. UTP cat 5 runs up to 300 meters.

    Hope this helps

    actually that is not true i have 2 pc's and i connect them through a switch (dont get a hub wellll to slowwwwwwwwwwwww) as it is very fast at everything. u can have inet access on both machines even if u just use a single crossover cable to connect the pair. need any info just ask
