Abstract


To implement electronic exams and material resources sharing (which is usually limited), an operating base is must be available for trading information and correspondence management. In this paper, self-managed computer networks, no server was designed. This network aims to share information and correspondence management between the laboratory`s computers. A specific software called Packet tracer used for designing and simulating the network, also for choosing the right medium and install the IP address so that a maximum of data flowing with minimum time and no data loss can be achieved. A class-C IP address was selected since it is the famous class and it doesn`t need any special equipment. Also it has a wide range of of computers in case of expanding the network. We didn`t use a wireless medium to protect the network from hacking. The network was based on an Ethernet medium and a star-connection between the computers with an average signal distributer. An excellent result was achieved after testing the network with a low error percentage, as shown in the result section of this paper.
