It's about that time of the year when I get round to trying to complete my 291 exam (swear i'm going to do it this time lol)...and no it's not home work it's me trying to learn myself (hence why i keep giving up at 291 and starting over)
Anyway I'm stuck on the IP range section. I've been given a No of hosts (3800) and a no of servers and printers which will use reservations (100)
From this i've got the mask 255.255.240.0 - This is no problem I know how to do this
But they've also asked for the start and end IP. From the info they've provided there is no range to work with. It's a choice, and I need to work out how they arrived at their solution
They've said the solution is; start IP = 10.0.0.101 and end IP = 10.0.15.160
Other available answers were 10.0.24.160 and 10.0.10.101
Can someone please explain how they arrived at their answer. Why 10.0.0.101 and not 10.0.10.101. And how is it 10.0.15.160 the end IP and not 10.0.24.160?
