I'm trying to connect from one machine to the other (for Postgres), and I'm confused about how to configure my IP address, both from a
allow connections from IP address X and from a
connect to machine A on IP address X standpoint, assuming there could be a difference.
If I use
ifconfig, the output says my
inet addr is
10.0.2.15. A related query on this subject pertains to the selected answer to this question, wherein the use of
/24 (24 bit IP) in the actual IP address confuses me. How/when should
/24 be used when specifying an IP address?
