Bad Mask for IP Address Error
I'm not too clear on subnetting rules and experienced an error when I tried to assign 188.8.131.52/28 to an interface on my Cisco router. Can someone please explain why it was not allowing me to assign this address to the interface? I receive an error saying:
Bad mask /28 for address 184.108.40.206
Is it outside the permissible range?
If you are using /28 network mask then 220.127.116.11 is the network address and therefore is not an assignable IP address for this subnet.
For subnet 18.104.22.168/28 the range of assignable IP address is 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, as 188.8.131.52 is the network address and 184.108.40.206 is the broadcast address
