    routing tables

    i am trying to get a better grasp on networking with linux and i was wondering what is the most efficient way to construct routing tables? for example if i have a small LAN of 5 computers when would be a approprite time to construct a table and what protocols would be best to use etc, etc. thanx for all replies in advance.

    Well, unless your 5 computers are on diffrent subnets/segments there's no point in messing with routing tables/protocols...

    How's your network setup, topology and addressing wise?

    Set your comp's up on different subnets and create static routes to test your routing prowess. Of course you'll need some equipment to accomplish this. I hear you can get Xylan Omniswitches pretty cheap on Ebay.... they switch and route. Actually they aren't that bad for being old......

    Not that I have much experience with them or anything. It's just a suggestion.
