i have 2 voltaire infiniband hca's and i just use them as a crossover network...
when the 2 computers are on they just come to life, and i can access that network via explorer in windows 7 and windows home server 2011.
but i use a 16 port gigabit switch and just ran my router off on of the ports on the switch and turned off the dhcp server on it and let pfsense dole out the ip's between the ranges of 200-254...
it works quite well and never interrupts my main network.
