View Full Version : [SOLVED] lan topology

February 24th, 2010, 01:38 AM

i am adding a new server to my lan. i have a question about the topology.

right now i have the modem connected to server1.

server1 is connected to a wireless router.

my question is where should server2 connect to the network?

both server1 and server2 will have their own ip address.

should i add a switch between the modem and then connect server1 and server2 to the switch?:confused:

both servers are linux. server1 is debian lamp, server2 is ubuntu 9.10 server. i would like to experiment with server2 as ubuntu lamp or cloud configurations.

switch ---- server2 (new server or cloud)
(wireless router)

(wifi computer1), (wifi computer 2), ....

what are the other topologies with this hardware manifest?

please advise.

the solution is to use the wireless adapter on the laptop server with the current configuration.
