SUBNET QUESTION

A cloud service is providing a public IP address 173.225.179.215/28
Doesn't that calculate to a subnet mask of 255.255.255.240 with first useable IP 173.225.179.208 ??

Windows errors with invalid host subnet combination.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

173.225.179.215/28 is on the 173.225.179.208 network.

The valid host addresses on that network are .209 - .222 with the broadcast address of .223
