Newbie - how to point to computer on a higher level domain.
« on: September 15, 2014, 06:58:07 PM »
* I am a newbie, please done use extremely complicated lingo.
* Even though this deals with mining computers, this is a networking question.
* I am aware that Comp. 1 could simply be plugged into the router, but that is not the solution that I am looking for.
* These are my computers in my home. I have complete control and access to all of them.

Situation:
I have two computers and two miners. I would like to set up p2pool on Comp. 1 and have the miners point to the IP of Comp. 1 ... but, I don't know how to do this. Could someone please help me to understand how to correctly point the miners to Comp. 1?

EDIT: To clarify, when I say to point to Comp. 1, I am referring how to network to it. So, I guess I am looking for some sort of configuration for the modem and / or the router, that would allow traffic to / from Comp. 1 / miners. Do I need to set up some sort of forwarding?

Addresses:
* Modem address as a gateway for router and Comp. 1 is: 192.168.1.254 - dhcp is enabled.
* Comp. 1 address provided by modem is: 192.168.1.65
* Cisco router address provided by modem is: 192.168.1.64

* Cisco router address as a gateway for the miners is: 192.168.1.1 - static addresses for miners
* Comp. 2 address provided by Cisco router is: 192.168.1.100
* Miners addresses provided by Cisco router are: 192.168.1.101 & 192.168.1.102

Here's a visual representation of my setup.

What's the subnet mask in use? 255.255.255.0?

It can't be 255.255.255.0 else you wouldn't be using a router but a switch/hub.

I bought the router (Cisco RV082) because I thought I needed a router.
The default subnet mask of the router is 255.255.255.0 ... I haven't changed it from the default subnet mask setting.
Should I be using another subnet mask?

Can you elaborate a little more on this?
I changed the mask and tried a couple of others but I get messages from my computer saying the mask is not compatible, so I changed it back to 255.555.555.0

Can you identify the ports you are plugged into on the router? 

What michael is saying is, if you are using the same IP scheme and same subnet mask on both the modem and the router, then you essentially have a flat network.  There would be no need for the router.

As mentioned it looks like a flat network (I.E. no routing taking place though the router has a IP the rMiner devices point too ...hmmm 192.168.1.x/24 is worth googling you will find they are all in the same network or the router network overlaps the cable modem network which isnt good)

first thing given

Addresses:
* Modem address as a gateway for router and Comp. 1 is: 192.168.1.254 - dhcp is enabled.
* Comp. 1 address provided by modem is: 192.168.1.65
* Cisco router address provided by modem is: 192.168.1.64

* Cisco router address as a gateway for the miners is: 192.168.1.1 - static addresses for miners
* Comp. 2 address provided by Cisco router is: 192.168.1.100
* Miners addresses provided by Cisco router are: 192.168.1.101 & 192.168.1.102

goto the command line cmd.exe in windows or term in linux (hopefully Comp 1/2 are these)
then ping various devices
from comp 1 ping comp 2

ping 192.168.1.100
also try
tracert 192.168.1.100 # see the path the packets will take or where they stop and are not forwarded

if linux sudo apt-get traceroute
then
traceroute 192.168.1.100


then try that from comp 2 to these MINERS
