Internet -> Router w/WiFi -> Switch -> wired devices.
All the wired devices can talk among themselves with an exception being if an app uses the internet to talk to other things. But file copies, normal stuff just is traffic on the porst of the devices chatting and the ports on the switch. Nowhere else.
Can create headaches for those that want to monitor what a device talks about.
Need a little more. In a switched network if machine a and b are on the same switch the traffic is direct between a and b and no other network device sees a thing. Kind of like Master Sergeant Schultz,
I have a router in one room of my house and wires running through the house into my bedroom where it's connected to a switch that further connected to several different computers in my room. What I am wanting to know is how the traffic flows from one computer to another. If computer A sends computer B a file does the data travel from A, to the switch, and then to B? Or does the traffic from A to B travel through the switch and all the way to the router and back before going to it's inteded destination computer B? Thanks.
It's passed on, this modem is no more, it has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker. It's a stiff, bereft of life, it rests in peace. It's kicked the bucket, shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This is an ex-modem!
So I have a little vague question and I don't know what to even google to get right answer.
I am trying to setup email client on friend's computer remotely. I tried outlook, native windows 10 client and thunderbird, they all fail to connect server in anyway with all settings. While when I try any client on my PC, just basic settings like mail server, id, password work fine and after that I am able to retrieve configuration data. So what could be causing this behavior? Any steps to fix this or troubleshoot? Any help will be great.
Hello! I just downloaded a program called FBCIM. That is: "Facebook Chat IM". It doesn't function. It says it's still under development. Now I would like to get in touch with the developers of the program. How can I achieve that? Please help.
The short answer is it appears you are capturing Ethernet packets. I am a poor substitute for all the good docs on the web about how this works but the IP work is done elsewhere as in the ARP protocol.
