Hello Experts,

I'm getting 'bad mask' when I enter the following ip address:

ip address 10.1.243.110 255.255.255.255
Bad mask /32 for address 10.1.243.110

I thought you could add /32 for any address?

Regards

Your IP address needs to be 10.1.243.111 which is the only useable address you have.

IP: 10.1.243.111
Broadcast Address: 10.1.243.110
Mast: 255.255.255.255

Dear cpaette;

practically you should assign /32 IP address just in loopback interface. Fast or Giga interfaces needs to use min /30 range. IT is meaningless to  use /32 on physical interface.

If you already assign ip address like 10.1.243.0/24 in physical interface, loopback has to be out of physical range scope. If you are not using vrf function on router, each interface network has to be different eachother.

Good days ..

I'm pretty sure that the longest mask you can have on a physical interface is a /31.  I don't remember which IOS version began supporting the /31.  A late 12 or early 15, IIRC.

But no /32's.
