Will try this.
Whth reference to the IP’s, I think you misunderstood my last post, we actually have ip’s x.x.x.1 > x.x.x.254 but most of them are already being used. I can plal with x.x.x.128 > x.x.x.159 as they are currently not assigned to any machine. Our subnet is actually 255.255.255.0
IP addressing aside, the concept should work. I will post the results back later.
