network class nomenclature


Hello,

I'm not really sure what this is called, so I had no idea what to look for. I was wanting to know what it means when an IP class is defined as so

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/x

I had always understood it to define the network class depending on if it was /16, /24, or /32. But then I see stuff like this:

66.109.160.0/19

which apparently translates to the IP range of

066.109.160.000 - 066.109.191.255

How does /19 translate to this IP range? Is there anything I can read that describes this clearly? And what the heck is it called anyways?

Thanks for the helo!

Here is a tutorial that explains IP address, subnetting and classless routing.

Wow, lot more complicated then I thought. It's to late for binary, I'll have to dig though this after I get some sleep.

Thanks for the link!
