Networking Multiple Consoles with Multiple Visualizers?

I'm looking to teach our in-house techs on the Hog console, utilizing a visualizer. If I get multiple consoles for the techs and want to have one visualizer per console, would I be able to run everything into a single network switch and just tweak IP addresses, or do I need a router for each console/visualizer pair set to

    Would they all be signed into the same show, or different shows with different ports on the same network?

    When using just one visualizer, then make one console the server and log in the others as clients.
    If you have multiple visualizer and each console with a different show, then set them all in the same IP range, but use different ports for the show (standard is 6600)

    There is no reason you shouldn't be able to achieve what you want to do on the same network, You just need to be a little clevaer with how you are addressing the consoles and Visualisers.
    If you have the monitor outputs available, would you be able to open multiple instances of the visualizer, adjusting artnet universes to/for each one (console 1 on subnet 1 universe 1, console 2 on subnet 2 uni 1 etc...)
    There should be no reason that you cant operate each console on different net numbers as long as you adjust the connectivity app accordingly. entirely depends on how your connecting.

    With one visualizer per console, connecting each console directly to it's visualizer PC is possible, no routers needed. I may have missed the reason but there isn't a need to have them all on the same network. They will all have separate systems and it is easier to setup as well.
