Limited broadcasts are used by devices attempting to configure themselves through DHCP, BOOTP, or another configuration protocol. 255 and should never pass through a router. This is a key hint for anyone who controls a router or other routing device such as a routing firewall. 255, chances are that there is a misconfigured device or, more likely, that a potential attacker is attempting to probe your network. You may see a limited broadcast on an internal interface for a router if you have devices that configure themselves on boot using DHCP.

This is useful for conservation of addresses because it enables the network administrator to customize the size of the network based more on need and convenience than on the classful boundaries. 252. I'll carry that example a little further. The two routers only need to talk to each other within this network so that they can route traffic between two different IP networks. 252. Given that subnet mask, there are two available IP addresses with which a host could be addressed. 3. 0 network, following CIDR rules, for other hosts.

The unmasked portion, known as the host portion, of the address comprises the logical network on which a given host resides. 0, there can be a total of 254 hosts on the network. An astute reader might notice that there are really 256 addresses but only 254 hosts. Within a given logical IP network there are two special addresses, the network address and the broadcast address. This is true regardless of the size of the network. 255. 2 illustrates, of the total 32 bits in an IPv4 address, a Class A subnet mask uses 8 bits, a Class B subnet mask uses 16 bits, and a Class C subnet mask uses 24 bits.
