suppose we have 2 computers, pc A and pc B, connected to one switch (both on the same vlan).
the ip on pc A is 192.168.0.1/16, and the ip on pc B is 192.168.5.1/24. will they be able to ping each other? [i said no because pc's act like rudimentary routers which usually know about their connected subnet and a default route. B only knows about 192.168.5.0/24 subnet. a packet from A is on the 192.168.0.0/16 subnet, which won't be in A's route table. however a colleague of mine says this arguement is false. your thoughts are appreciated]
