Putting this here for now so all can see, will move it once it’s set up;

Colours:
Grey : Data
Red : Door Access
Blue : VOIP
White : Misc
Pink : Server

Will drop in a load of half metre cables tomorrow and wire if I have time

Will also try and source a KVM


#2

Sounds good - I am happy to plug it up


#3

The current wiring makes me very anxious =)


#4

Are we any further on with this? or does anyone know a place to get reasonably priced ethernet cables?


#5

Networking jobs had halted a little bit recently. Mostly due to pressure to get the workshop finished.

Cheapest option in my mind is to buy a cable reel and Ethernet plugs separately and make our own cables. Means they are the correct lengths too. I’m sure we have the tool already for it (just an idea)


#6

Sounds good I am happy to take over patching the switch and ports in if its needed also if there is anything else I can help with I am quite happy to volunteer as a second network person


#7

if you could learn some basics on ESXi (vmware) that be cool also… I can change the password to a ‘safe’ one


#8

Sounds good you showed me some and I know some already so when you can shoot us the pwd


#9

OK, the cables need patching in properly within the near future so we can start organising the network

I am thinking buy a reel of cable, some ends (preferable with guide rails inside) and crimps for the space

Amazon seem to stock some
