What does the Subnet 250 limit host numbers to?

Had someone with a private ip and a SM of 255.255.255.250

I'm new to subnetting.

Hi gizmoadria,

Try this page http://www.webpoint.at/service/subnet.html it can calculate it all for you.

LucF - cool calculator.  Just to clarify, if you plugin the subnet mask 255.255.255.250, it will calculate 5 addresses.  However, the last address(255) is a reserved broadcast address, so you really only have 4 usable.

so, how many hosts can be supported?

192.168.1.32 (one of the machines)
255.255.255.250
192.168.1.1

Then you can use 192.168.1.32 t/m 192.168.1.36 and 192.168.1.37 will be the broadcast adress

hmmz, I feel a bit left out on this one :-(

>how can I tell what the beginning number is?
Just use the calculator I posted above and it'll tell you. Just giving the IP-adres of one of the clients show the rest.

LucF,

sorry! I did not see the Split points area!  

Can I go back?  Redo it?

ohhhhh


So putting in that info, it shows that the range starts at 32 and goes up to 37.  37 is reserved for broadcasting?

Yes, that's right.

>I did not see the Split points area!
It was just below the question just before you accepted ErnieExperts comment as an answer.

>Can I go back?  Redo it?
You can ask a question at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ about this, or you can post a "points for LucF" question linking to this one, your choice.
