I have a basic gigabit ethernet network setup with few laptops, workstation and a Freenas server to host all data.
Recently I edit large 3D files with my workstation that are on the Freenas server. I occasionally do some video work too.
I wonder how is it like to setup 10gig LAN? Would it be possible to setup a kind of 10gig ad-hoc connection with the server and my workstation while still keep the usual gigabit connection to others? I have heard 10gig switches are expensive and I can only use 10gig LAN with my workstation as my other machines don’t have the faster interfaces.
I am not very advanced user, although I know my way around basic Linux server and was able to setup Freenas server and shares.
