I have used Link Local protocol several times but only to link two computers or a computer and another device to transfer files via FTP.
But does Link Local protocol work for multiple hosts. Let's say that I would like to build an office Network WITHOUT access to Internet at all. If I have approximately 30 Hosts would a router bring any benefit to it or it is the same if I use let's say 7 switches and let every computer get its IP address using Link Local.
From what I understand, using NAT every computer would be able to know on which port to send a frame directed towards a specific IP address.
If I install printers on the Network and File Storage Servers would the application protocols that normally discover servers on the network work the same ?
