How would I allot more than 256 addresses on a network?


(Charlie Lehardy) #1

My local LAN needs 300 or more IP addresses. I would rather not divide the network into smaller subnets, if that can be avoided. Is there a way to create a DHCP network in NS that uses more than 256 addresses?

This may be the purpose of “alias” IPs, but I’m not familiar with that term and I’m not sure how to use it.

You can use a class a o class b network address

10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255 class a is too big, but you can still use it.

class b is better

172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255, for example 172.16.1.0 to 172.16.2.254

Of course! Thank you, Jose.
