Maybe you could give me your unofficial blessing on the following?
- Found a four port hub
- Two servers both with two NICS. One of the NIC's is connected directly to
the hub. This would constitute the two private IP addresses.
- The second NIC's would be a wireless adapters to act as the "public" IP
addresses. This is so I can see them from my office. Not a good idea?
- The network storage is a network storage device I found...160 GB. This
plugs directly into the hub as well? Once plugged into the hub, would I then
configure IP's, subnets, etc. What is the admin interface?
My next dumb question is this: when setting up the hub, do I just plug it in
and go? I've worked on network stuff before , but it's always been set up for
me. I just go in and assign IP addresses, network names, etc.
