Hello,
My question is why cant I assign a ip of the same net
to both ports?

EX:

S0: 192.168.5.33/27
E0: 192.168.5.34/27

I get a overlap error.

Because they overlap. The whole purpose of a router is to route between different subnets. If you have the same subnet on two interfaces, your only choice is to bridge them so that they appear to be on the same network.
In that case, you'd have to turn off routing and setup bridge groups.
What, exactly, are you trying to accomplish?

Basically, I was playing around assigning ip address
to the ports and saw that I was on the same subnet
after the error, and wasnt sure why it would not let me assign them.

Just checking to make sure I should have gotten that error.

I was trying to set these up in a lab env, and chose a range of address's

Thanks,
Chris
