Configuring IP Addresses

Updated on November 12, 2014

Configure IP Addresses

When configuring IP addresses, keep in mind the following:

  • You cannot assign the subnet address to a host (such as 192.168.0.0 or 10.0.0.0).
  • The /x notation identifies the number of bits in the subnet mask.
    • /8 indicates a subnet mask of 255.0.0.0.
    • /16 indicates a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0.
    • /24 indicates a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
  • Portions of the subnet mask that include a 1 identify the subnet address. This portion of the address must be the same for all hosts on the subnet.
  • Portions of the subnet mask that include a 0 identify the host address. This portion of the address must be unique between all hosts.
  • You cannot assign the last address to a host (such as 192.168.0.255 or 10.0.255.255)
