Let host X has IP address 126.96.36.199 and host Y has IP address 188.8.131.52 and both hosts use the same netmask Z. which of the network masks Z given below can used if both hosts are in the same network?
please explain why 255.255.255.193 and 255.255.128.0 can't be subnet mask.
For both hosts to be in the same network performing bitwise AND (&) operation between IP address and subnet mask, result should be same subnet ID to be in same network.
By performing AND operation with option 3) gives same subnet ID 184.108.40.206 and with option 4) gives same subnet id 220.127.116.11 .
Bikram sir please help.
DO bitwise AND with 255.255.255.193,
for both the IP address we will get the same network id which is 18.104.22.168. Hence it is a Subnet Mask.
Even for 4th option we can get the same AND operation result form both IP address.
i think both option c and d can be answer.
Correct me if i am wrong.
Option is C) the correct optioNn
