# How many hosts are in a 30 network?

## How many hosts are in a 30 network?

For Class B Networks

/count possible
28 255.255.255.240 16
29 255.255.255.248 8
30 255.255.255.252 4

How many IP addresses are in a 30?

/30 — 64 Subnets — 2 Hosts/Subnet

.16 .17-.18 .19
.20 .21-.22 .23
.24 .25-.26 .27
.28 .29-.30 .31

What is a slash 30 subnet mask?

As you know a /24 bit subnet mask has 254 usable IP addresses + 1 for the broadcast + 1 for the network. This is calculated 2^8 (or 2 to the 8th power) = 256 – 2 = 254. So what is a /30 bit mask? A /30 bit mask would be 30 one’s, leaving just 2 zero’s that could be used for host addressing.

### How many hosts can be part of a network with mask?

IP subnetting

Subnet Mask Number of Supported Hosts per Network
Class A 255.0.0.0 Over 16 million
Class B 255.255.0.0 Over 16 thousand
Class C 255.255.255.0 254

How many usable IPS is a 31?

/32 255.255.255.255 1
/31 255.255.255.254 2*

/29 255.255.255.248 6

How many IPS are in a subnet?

Essentially, a subnet is a smaller portion of the network within class A, B, or C. Creating and using subnets can help to keep your network organized and functional. Each IP address block can create 254 IP addresses, which allows 254 x 4 total IP addresses to be created for use in the network.

#### Is 32 a single IP?

/32 addressing Generally speaking, /32 means that the network has only a single IPv4 address and all traffic will go directly between the device with that IPv4 address and the default gateway. The device would not be able to communicate with other devices on the network.

What is a slash 30 network?

The /30 indicates that the network portion is 30 bits so, oooooooo.oooooooo.oooooooo.oooooo00. For the host bits you have 4 options, 00, 01, 10, and 11. 00 is the network and 11 is the broadcast, so you have 2 usable IPs.

What does 30 mean in IP address?

Think of the ip address as binary bits. 00000000.00000000.00000000.00000000. The /30 indicates that the network portion is 30 bits so, oooooooo.oooooooo.oooooooo.oooooo00. For the host bits you have 4 options, 00, 01, 10, and 11. 00 is the network and 11 is the broadcast, so you have 2 usable IPs.

## How many IPs are in a 240 subnet?

16 subnets
240 subnet mask. This mask permits up to 16 subnets with enough host addresses for 14 hosts per subnet.

How many hosts are in a 8 subnet?

Subnet Cheat Sheet – 24 Subnet Mask, 30, 26, 27, 29, and other IP Address CIDR Network References

/10 255.192.0.0 4,194,304
/9 255.128.0.0 8,388,608
/8 255.0.0.0 16,777,216
/7 254.0.0.0 33,554,432

How do you calculate subnet and host?

To calculate the number of possible hosts per subnet, use the formula 2h – 2, where h equals the number of host bits. The reason two addresses must be subtracted is because of the network address and the broadcast address.

### How are netmasks and slash notation used in firewalls?

Subnetting, netmasks and slash notation Netmasks are used in ACLs (access control lists), firewalls, routing and subnetting. It involves grouping IP addresses. Each range contains a power of two (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, etc) number of addresses and starts on a multiple (0, 1, 2, 3, etc) of that number of addresses.

What are the netmasks of a Class A network?

Most people are used to class A, B and C networks. These have the following IP address, netmasks and size: 127.0.0.1 is reserved for the loopback, with network address 127.0.0.0, netmask 255.0.0.0 and 127.255.255.255 as its broadcast address. 0.0.0.0 is the entire Internet with netmask 0.0.0.0 and 255.255.255.255 as its broadcast address.

When do you use slash notation in routing?

This also known as ‘slash notation’. What used to be class A is now ‘/8’, B is ‘/16’, C is ‘/24’ and ‘/32’ is the ‘netmask’ for a single host. Netmasks are used by routers to make routing decisions. For instance;
