Quote from InuYasha86000I myself was curious about it due to the fact my network switch only has 8 ports and almost every one of them is taken up. one problem with the GUI, it's server version, no GUI just dos prompts so to speak, and I was curious if it would actually work and it would be good to be bale to utilize the 2nd port on the board.
Buy a bigger switch is my recommendation, then you need to do it by terminal or start up a GUI. Use GUI tools when they work better and use CLI when it works better. Enable a GUI you can leave it disabled by default on boot, you can start it up and do the configuration if they are experienced just use the GUI.
If you are going to then bring up some argument about a GUI wasting ram or some other line. I have never seen a windows admin start with the GUI off and leave it off on a server. Most either leave the GUI on or disable it after configurations are done. So why is it so many Linux users have this taboo about just having a GUI installed when it is so easy to turn off and on. Unless you are in some super restrictive environment just use a GUI when it works better.
