hello i have question about subnetting.When i have an ip =172.162.255.255 it means sending paackets in all hosts in subnet just like for example 172.16.5.255 means all hosts in subnet 5 ?or it is all hosts in all subnets?
2) what is the difference of 255 subnet and 254 (except that subnet 255 it has lagerst value in netwrok) thanks very much

    What subnet mask are you working with?
    This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the
    beauty of the baud.

    a host address that is all 1's is the broadcast address for the network it belongs.

    I'm sure the question makes sense to you. But, supplying an ip addresses without the subnetmask. then, talking networks and hosts makes no sense to anyone else.
