I want to try some networking projects with Raspberry Pis, and I need to just send packets between a pair of pis. I would be happy as a first step just being able to ping between to Raspberry Pis in ad-hoc mode. I have not successfully done this despite looking at several tutorials and examples online.
I have 2x Raspberry Pis with the Debian Wheezy OS installed.
I'm starting to learn basic switching / networking and I've hit a small hiccup in understanding a fundamental thing. In the scenario I have a L3 switch (Brocade in my environment) and the facility gave me a /24 (We'll say 10.1.0.0/24).
Now would you assign the full 10.1.0.0/24 range to switchport 1?
Our networking guy has left the company a while ago, and until the company hires someone else, I (an app dev) need to keep on migrating some of our services. I have been googling and reading up on networking for the past few days, but still feel i am probably missing very basic stuff, and lack the best practices applicable here.
