  • Advice For Lab Setup Host

    Heya guys.

    Maybe u can help.
    I want to setup a machine acting as host for personal VM Labs.
    This machine will be completely isolated. No internet or anything. I want to give it a fixed IP address.
    What is the best IP/Subnet to use on this host?
    A 10, 169 or 192?
    Hope my question makes sense.

    Thanx,
    Kev

    Any of the three private networks will be fine:
    10.x.x.x/8
    172.16-24.x.x/16 (double check the correct data for this one)
    192.168.x.x/24

    Not 169 (I think you are remembering APIPA addresses on 169.254.x.x/16)
