- How does IPv4 Subnetting Work? 5 answers
I have an upcoming exam in networks communication. One of the available tasks for training on subnetting is the following:
Suppose you are an ISP with a 188.8.131.52/24 address block. If 2 customers require addresses for 127 and 60 computers respectively. Do the address assignment.
Don't i need 1 bit for subnets and then will have only 126 hosts per subnet since 2^7-2 = 126 ,therefor not being able to satisfy the customer demanding 127 hosts.
Or is there some other way to solve this that have passed me by ?
