Connecting two nodes without a hub

Connecting two nodes without a hub

Question:
Is it possible to connect two nodes without a hub? If so, what type of cable do I need?

Answer:
Yes, it is possible. You need a “cross-over 10BaseT cable.”

The basic difference between the regular and cross-over cables is that the Transmit and Receive pairs are reversed at either end of the crossover, eliminating the need for a hub.
