  1. Networking and subnets

    i've got the following

    Host Address is 164.14.83.19
    Supernet is \16
    Subnet mask is 255.255.255.0

    i need to get the network address along with the subnet address, i've
    done the following to work this out but think i may have worked it out
    crossed the answers some how, can some1 plz tell me if i'm on the
    right patch or if i've messed up

    network address = Host_ad + Subnet mask

    10100100.00001110.01010011.00010011 (host_address)
    11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 (subnet_mask)
    -----------------------------------------------
    10100100.00001110.01010011.00000000 (network address) = 164.14.83.0

    Subnet Address = Net_ad + supernet

    10100100.00001110.01010011.00000000 (network Address)
    11111111.11111111.00000000.00000000 (Supernet)
    -----------------------------------------------
    10100100.00001110.00000000.00000000 (subnet address) = 164.14.0.0

    thanks in advance.

    Ditto.

    Were all the kids in the class told to post the same question to the
    usenet?

    The most important concept for this class, IMO, should be that ther
    terms supernet and subnet are not much used and not all that relevant
    anymore. An IP address is composed of a prefix and a host ID, and the
    prefix length can vary.
