Today I was faced with this question:
A server and PC are connected through a hub. Their IP configs are as follows:
Server: 192.168.10.155, SM: 255.255.255.0
PC: 192.168.20.201 SM: 255.255.0.0
The client is having trouble communicating with the server. What would you do?
Now, for me, the obvious solution would be to make the SMs the same. But the example said "other than making the SMs the same".
Could I use something like 255.255.240 on the PC? If so, why? I'm a little green with all this subnetting stuff..
