I was wondering if some could give me some suggestions on my home network.
I have a;
* N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
* and 9 computers (4 are R Pis lol), all running a Debian or Ubuntu based distro, except for two running Mountain Lion (I would like to get rid of Mountain Lion for GNU/Linux, but I am not sure if the drivers, fans, temperature, efi etc will be ok).
I am thinking that static ip addresses for the computers would be best as my aim is to;
* Use ssh to perform parallel mathematical simulations (like mpi)
However, I want the ssh to only work inside the LAN with a safe key as security is important (no WAN access).
My network looks like:
Router ---> 8 port switch -------> computer 1
|-------> computer 2
|-------> computer 3
|-------> computer 4
|-------> computer 5
|-------> 5 Port Switch ---------> R Pi 1
|---------> R Pi 2
|---------> R Pi 3
|---------> R Pi 4
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am really not sure the best way to do this.
I have some knowledge of GNU/Linux iptables and freeBSD pf firewall rulesets.
I was thinking of making my own router using a computer with two ether connections, and putting it in-between my NETGEAR router and my LAN, but this seems complex for a noob like me.
