What should I enter for IPv4 address range and Mask configuing IP limited website?

I followed the instructions here set up a Internet website.  We only want to allow users who are on our network to access the site.



to setup in IIS 7 a website with limited IP access.  When I click on Add Allow Entry, the dialog has a radio button for IPv4 address rang, so I selected that.  There are 2 textboxes.  "IPv4 address range" and "Mask"
I was given ip addresses like
What is that "/19"?  Also, Show I just enter for "IPv4 address range" and "" for the mask?
Thank you.

The /19 is a different way of showing the subnet mask

E.g = /24 = 16

Basically you work this out by taking each of the sections of the mask and working out in binary

So = 11111111.11111111.00000000.00000000 - so we have /16 1's and 16 0's
Which in turn means a /16 subnet mask

In the /24 example(which is this looks like
11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 - note we now have 24 1's, and 8 0's
So this becomes a /24 subnet mask(i.e. the 24 1's)

So a /19 works out as
Working to decimal this becomes

So you enter(for your example) with mask
