    1. 1022 IP for 120 clients may be excesive.

    2. Need to do routing between segments or put 2 ethernet interfaces configured on two LAN segments.

    3. Add a new inverse zone. If namespace is the same you don´t need do nothing else.

    why B class?

    extend existing subnet maybe?

    if you want to connect two subnets together you need router or layer 3 switch

    Routing is the process of learning all the paths through the network (routes) and using routes to forward data from one network to another.


    extend existing subnet maybe? HOW?
    if you need more than 254 IP's you can always use mask on network

    Netmask: = 22    
    Network:       (Class C)
    Hosts/Net: 1022
