My job requires that I have access information on multiple machines via SSH. Unfortunately, due to some ongoing remodeling, there are now more machines than there are available ethernet ports, and I no longer have access to all the machines I need. On top of that, our one man IT department is on honeymoon.
I would like to solve this problem by using a simple network switch (the ethernet part, not the honeymoon). However, I'm not sure how it would effect SSHing into each of the machines. Would the address of the machine change or do I need to configure the switch in some way?
