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