I am a software engineer and no one in my team is familiar with network setup. My team recently bought 20 PCs for test our software but we only have 2 ports left in the room. And I have suddenly come to take responsibility to setup. Before I request a help from network team, I want to setup them by ourselves first.
I borrowed the Layer-3 Network switch from another team for couple of days to proof setup(HP 5500 HI series - JG311A). I have tried some setup for few days but failed.
Requirement is simple. All corporation computers should be able to access the test PCs by IP addresses, so all PCs should have individual IP addresses. The company provides DHCP, but we can also ask static IPs for all 20 PCs.
Can I test this with the current Layer-3 switch? If can, how? (I know how to use console and commands)
