Figuring out CIDR and IP address ranges can fry the brain of a normal person. Use the handy IP calculator web site (http://jodies.de/ipcalc) and save your head.
|LIC topology: internal subnets|
The diagrams show these subnets on network topology diagrams. They show the various chunks of the LIC, the colours of the network cables connecting the computers, some of the computer names and where the IP addresses get used.
I split the 192.168.0.0/16 network into 32 subnets.
- 192.168.0.0/16 -> 192.168.0.0/21, 192.168.8.0/21 and so on up to 192.168.248.0/21
I only use three subnets. Each subnet is used to cover one area of the LIC. The table below summarises what is going on. There are gaping great holes in this table to allow more DMZs to be added at a later date (the LIC can be expanded to a much bigger and more complex setup).
Each of the 32 subnets contains 2,046 host IP addresses.
