netmaks / subnet
Posted on 2008-09-29
I have a network that was badly designed , the ip is something like '192.168.x.x / 255.255.0.0' , i do not see the necessary for such subnet mask , but this is reality, i would like to change this accommodate around 1000 hots , so i find 192.168.x.x / 255.255.252.0 would be a good choice .
again , what is the advantage / disadvantage for moving the subnet from 255.255.0.0 to 255.255.252.0 ? please advise me / guide for best way to expand the network with 1000 hosts / users and to be very efficient , they need to access exchange , some VM servers, domain controller , network share etc.
