How to setup a local environment for test sending ether

Hi there,

I am a beginner to Ethereum and I am struggling with setting up the test environment on my machine.

I have only one laptop but I want to run two nodes and send ether from one to the other.

I am following this tutorial:

But when I run commands like: eth --public-ip --listen-port 30300 -d /tmp, it gives me this error: terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::exception_detail::clone_impl'

I know the IP address I entered is not public. But I don't have a public IP. Neither do I have access to the router.

So do you guys have any instructions about how to set up a test environment under my circumstance? Is it possible to set up a private test net (using private blockchain???)

Thanks a lot!
