How does Subnetting Work?
In a same block of IPv4 addresses, can there be same IPs with different submasks? For example, can I have this:
188.8.131.52/26 184.108.40.206/25 220.127.116.11/24
All the 3 addresses above have the same numbers but different subnet mask. Are all the 3 addresses distinct of their own? In other words, 18.104.22.168/25 belongs to User A, 22.214.171.124/25 belongs to User B and 126.96.36.199/24 belongs to User C?
After applying the submask, their network addresses look like this:
188.8.131.52/26 --> 184.108.40.206/26 220.127.116.11/25 --> 18.104.22.168/25 22.214.171.124/24 --> 126.96.36.199/24
If the addresses are recognised uniquely, how is it so? How would each of the these addresses being recognised to be unique?
I am thinking like once I have
188.8.131.52/26, I can't reuse the same numbers of
184.108.40.206 again but since classless is meant to increase the number of IP addresses, it would do much if I can't reuse.
