At a minimum what IPv4 address components do I have to configure in order to communicate on my local subnet?

Thanks in advance.

For communication on the local subnet you should only need IP address and subnet mask. Remember the IP addresses need to be in the same network but unique for each appliance. The subnet mask should be the same for each appliance. Local LANs should use private IP address ranges as well.
