Hi,

Can someone check if I am getting this right ?


If I have the following networks:


172.16.1.0/24

172.16.2.0/24

172.16.3.0/24


Then the best summary address is

172.16.0.0/22


And if my networks to summarize are:


172.16.11.0/24

172.16.12.0/24

172.16.13.0/24


Then my summary address will be:

172.16.8.0/20


And if my networks to summarize are:

172.16.14.0/24

172.16.15.0/24

172.16.16.0/24


My best network summary address is :

172.16.0.0/19


Regards,


Phil.

1. I would agree with you

2. You could do a /21

172.16.8.0 255.255.248.0 Networks 172.16.8.0 to 172.16.15.0

3. I would agree again

BTW- A great tool for subnetting/summarizing is Solarwinds IP Subnet Calculator (and it's free) http://www.solarwinds.com/products/freetools/free_subnet_calculator.aspx

I was a bit worried for a moment, but I only wrote 7 bits out instead of 8 when working this one out giving /20 instead of /21.


Thanks for your help and the calc link.


Cheers,


Phil.
