rpi network

Thu Oct 31, 2019 11:32 pm

hi guys
I want to create a private network without internet connection with my rpi, then I want to play a file on 3 monitor.
to do this I want to use 3 rpi (1 rpi4, 1 rpi 3b+, 1 rpi 0 w; one for every monitor) and I want to use a modem router that I canged it in access point mode.
1. the question is: how to configure every rpi to comunicate eachother?
tnx

If you set up your router to be a router and don't connect the WAN port to anything, the Pis can get IP addresses from the DHCP service in the router, so that's all you need.

Ok. If I want to play a video file on every rpi, what can I do? should I use a program to do it, a net protocol, o whatelse?

KODI supports NFS, FTP, UPnP and SMB, so just pick one of these protocols. I recommend NFS.
