Its really conflicting when configuring private IP address on Microsoft network.
RFC 1918 "http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1918
" uses a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 (/16) for the class C range of 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
Microsoft uses 255.255.255.0 (/24) in the TCP/IP configuration properties of a NIC
MS also says that we need to have 255.255.0.0 (/16) while using private IP addresses "http://ms.helifan.net/technet/network/evaluate/technol/tcpipfund/tcpipfund_ch03.mspx
I am realy confused
Any idea please?
