Aims

The aim of this activity is to understand the operation of subnetting, using differing types of IP classifications, and subnet masks.

Activity 1: 255 subnet mask

Time to complete: Approx 10 minutes

An easy subnet mask to assign is the 255 one. With this the complete parts of the first, second, or third part of the address is used to differentiate the network part, while the rest is the host part.
