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:
220.127.116.11/26 18.104.22.168/25 22.214.171.124/24
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, 126.96.36.199/25 belongs to User A, 188.8.131.52/25 belongs to User B and 184.108.40.206/24 belongs to User C?
After applying the submask, their network addresses look like this:
220.127.116.11/26 --> 18.104.22.168/26 22.214.171.124/25 --> 126.96.36.199/25 188.8.131.52/24 --> 184.108.40.206/24
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
220.127.116.11/26, I can't reuse the same numbers of
18.104.22.168 again but since classless is meant to increase the number of IP addresses, it would do much if I can't reuse.
