That was true at one time. These days it is acceptable to use all definable subnets (including first and last). If you have some really old (pre 1995) equipment or software it may be a bit iffy.

I'm afraid I don't understand your question then. The subnetting is fine. You have a full /16 on interface 2 and 3 (way overkill for most applications but hey :). All of your interfaces are utilizing valid RFC1918 private IP space. It should all just work. *shrug* -Steve _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
