I'd like to ask couple questions that I have about subnetting and switch configuration (more about latter).
Currently, I have subnetted my network to be on IP 192.168.10.0/29 with subnet mask 255.255.255.240 following this logic, my effective IP range for host machines is 192.168.10.1 - 192.168.10.14 because 0 and 15 are reserved.
Knowing this, if I have an office with say 5 machines which are connected to a switch, does this mean that when it comes to configuring the interfaces on the switch I should use each of the IP's within the above range for each interface? This seems highly inefficient if say I have multiple offices or rooms. Now I know that interfaces can be selected as a range i.e. interface range f0/2-14, but I can't set an IP range like 192.168.10.2-192.168.10.14. My current thought process is that I should configure each interface manually to assign the IP addresses incrementally.
I would appreciate if somebody could point out any potential misunderstandings I might have about this topic.
