Whats the difference between a client and an interface?

A client is basically one “physical” computer, which is present inside a network. But one client can have multiple network interfaces to, for example, communicate with multiple different networks.

Can an interface have multiple IP addresses?

Yes! In IPv6 it is “default” to have a “Link Local” and a “Globale” address, but also IPv4 can have multiple IP addresses.

Why do we need subnets?
