I am using an 220.127.116.11 network with ip address from 1 to 254.My subnet mask is 255.0.0.0. My problem is that am able ot ping 18.104.22.168 ( Broadcast address ) . But it doesnot ping 22.214.171.124 . I am really confused why it is pinging one broadcast address and other doesn't. Ideally it shoudn't ping any broadcast address. Can anyone give me a solution.
