Networking, mutually exclusive subnets

Last Modified: 2012-09-20
I have defined 2 different subnets, each containing 3 nodes (which I intend that only those 3 nodes can communicate with each other via a switch)

Subnet 1

   Hosts: -  

   I assigned the following nodes to this subnet

Open in new window

Subnet 2

   Hosts: -        

   I assigned the following nodes to this subnet

Open in new window

Does this look like a good solution

Did I miss anything ?

This looks perfect!

The nodes inside subnet 1 will be able to communicate with each other without any routing, as well as the nodes of subnet2 inside their subnet.

Traffic between nodes in the different subnets will have to be routed.

Are you connecting all six nodes to one switch? You might want to consider using VLANs then (if the switch is up to that).

It's not a solution that will provide any security in the sense that it will prevent a node in one subnet from reaching a node in another.  
You could ask about that.....
