How can we differentiate between physical and logical network typologies in Computer Networks?
Computer Networks have two types of topologies, physical and logical. What is the difference between physical network topology and logical network topology?
I've no idea. Why I'm typing this answer? So that I could follow your question and get to know the most appropriate answer. But your questions looks like as if you're asking difference between hard parts and the softer ones (of computer).
The physical topology of any network is made up of the physical devices that connect the elements or nodes of the network together. Ethernet cables, hubs, routers, computers and air waves that the wireless signal passes through make up the physical topology of a network.
The logical topology is the structure that has been programmed into the intelligent devices to control what individual logical nodes have access to in the network. The logical topology can encompass the entire physical topology or only a portion of it.
A Simple example - three servers - two workstations two printers and a scanner. All devices connected to each other over a physical topology. But logically not all workstations have access to all servers, or other peripheral devices because they have been separated into work groups that cannot see each other. You could have any number of logical typologies that would run over the same physical topology.
I hope that helps.
There are two types of network topology; one is physical and the other is logical. The physical topology is the shape you can see, and the logical topology is the shape that the data travels in. Both logical and physical topologies could be same or different in a same network.
