This question is mainly for Dr. Stonedahl. For the firewall generating method in map generator, we want 9 devices divided into 3 subnets and then firewalls. Would that look like 3 nodes with fire wall settings connected to eachother and with 3 nodes only connected to each of them? Or are subnets seperate from the firewall nodes?

Subnets just means "subnetworks" -- i.e., part of a network -- with a subset of possible IP addresses from the IP addresses available in the larger network, based on using a subnet mask.

There is a solution that involves having 12 nodes total, similar to what I think you are suggesting.

There are other solutions too though -- for instance, I think there is a solution that involves just 11 total nodes.
