Hi all,

My collegues asked me to draw a network & server topology.
They would like more "sexy" pictucres than rectangles and circles:

Would you have a Drawing template to have nice "computer & network

You can use any picture you want. What I do is add all pictures I like for a
specific topic to a Draw file and add gluepoints to them. From that file I select
the image I need and copy it to the file I am working on. If you add the
gluepoints wisely, then you can resize and reposition the image and the
connectors will just follow it. You can even define what direction the
connectors should prefer. To bad Draw won't allow you to do this in a more
elegant way, but for me using template file works OK.

P.S. I would advise you to make your images transparent before copying them to
the template file. That way you can use them on any background in future use.

P.P.S. Search the intenet for Visio stencils or other image collections you
like. I don't have a URL handy right now, but Googling for "Cisco Systems
Corporate Iconography" will point you in the right direction.

To be honest, there are a lot of free clipart sites out there that has free computer and network related pictures/graphics. I have not looked for these in a few years, but I had to do a project like your image and found all I needed on those free clipart sites.
