IP Address Range


Hello everyone,

I am trying to understand IP ranges.

I never understood this. What does 192.168.0.1/24 or 192.168.0.1/32 mean?

Is there a shortcut like that which would be the equivalent to 192.168.0.75-192.168.0.100.

I ask because I am trying to configure Bind 9.7 and I want to add a range of IP address which are trusted.

Thanks

Hello,

The /24 and /32 refer to the subnet/netmask used by your network and define how many hosts you can connect within that subnet. Those are basics in networking. Have a look at this very easy to understand tutorial on subnetting to get more details.

Kind regards,

Eric
