Hi Carl

An IP address is a 32 bit value shown in dotted decimal notation i.e xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.

Each octet contains 8 bits and the total value of each octet with all the bits turned on (set to 1's) is 255.

So due to this constraint it is not possible to have a host with an IP address over 255.

Michael
