Subnet mask for 2 different networks

Hello Experts, we are installing some VOIP phones, and they are using dual network spliters, to avoid installing another NIC on the pc´s...

However:

PC1 has 192.168.5.200 - and the phone will have 192.168.2.10

they cannot see each other (ping) can I just re-adjust subnet mask to 255.255.248.0 ?

thanks

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

the best way is to setup vlans if you switch will support it. I would check with your phone vendor to see if it is supported. That way your phones will not talk to your computers and you can use just one Ethernet drop to both.
