I want to direct connect my server to two clients using 10 GBE.
I plan to use the ATTO FastFrame NT12 NIC.
Now, few question as i'm new to the 10GBE:
- can i assign a static IP C class address to each port on the card that is on the server (total of 2 ports=2 IP address)?
- Can i assign a static IP address to the client and to let the server and the client communicate between them on a standard subnet? for example: The server address will be 192.168.1.1 and the client address will be 192.168.1.2 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0?
- after a connection will be established between the server and the server, will i be able to map a shared folder on the client (from the server) as i was mapping under 1GB network?
- For direct connection betwen server and client - i know i need to use CAT 6a or CAT 7 cable - BUT, do i need a standard cable or a crossover cable?
