Im just getting started with my home lab. I have managed to obtain a3ft high comms cabinet and a couple of patch panels.
I will be getting a terminal server so I can config my gear whilst its way up in the loft out of the way in the comms cabinet.
I have 3 switches and 3 routers at the moment and knowing me will have more in the future. What I wanted to know was how many Cat 5 cables do I need to run to my lab ?
I know I will have one to my terminal server, but I have not got to any lab work yet in my ccna study yet, so I dont know if the lab tests require me to have a cat 5 connection to each switch for lab testing etc?
