Pre-Requisite: Advantages and Disadvantages of Tree Topology

In the tree topology of networking, the elements and devices are arranged like a tree structure and have branches of connections between the devices connected to each other. To implement tree topology in Cisco there are various steps as follows:

Steps to Configure and Setup Tree Topology in Cisco Packet Tracer:

Step 1: First, open the Cisco packet tracer desktop and select the devices given below:

S.NO Device Model-Name
1. PC PC
2. switch PT-switch

IP Addressing Table

S.NO Device IPv4 Address Subnet Mask
1. pc0 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
2. pc1 192.168.0.2 255.255.255.0
3. pc2 192.168.0.3 255.255.255.0
4. pc3 192.168.0.4 255.255.255.0
5. pc4 192.168.0.5 255.255.255.0
6. pc5 192.168.0.6 255.255.255.0
  • Then, create a network topology as shown below the image.
  • Use an Automatic connecting cable to connect the devices with others.

 

Step 2: Configure the PCs (hosts) with IPv4 address and Subnet Mask according to the IP addressing table given above.

  • To assign an IP address in PC0, click on PC0.
  • Then, go to desktop and then IP configuration and there you will IPv4 configuration.
  • Fill IPv4 address and subnet mask.

 

  •  Assigning an IP address using the ipconfig command, or we can also assign an IP address with the help of a command.
  • Go to the command terminal of the PC.
  • Then, type ipconfig <IPv4 address><subnet mask><default gateway>(if needed)
Example: ipconfig 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0

 

  • Repeat the same procedure with other PCs to configure them thoroughly.

Step 3: Verify the connection by pinging the IP address of any host in PC0.

  • Use the ping command to verify the connection.
  • We will check if we are getting any replies or not.
  • As we can see, we are getting replies from a targeted node on both PCs.
  • Hence the connection is verified.
ping <targeted node's IP address>

 

  • A simulation of the experiment is given below we have sent two PDU packets one targeted from PC0 to PC3 and another targeted from PC1 to PC5.
