Very basic question..which is throwing me off.
We never use this in Production environment. But when we have an access-list like following
access-list 1 permit 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255
This means..we are allowing any host ( 0.0.0.0) and what is confusing me is 255.255.255.255.. ( Does this mean any subnet).
Usuallay in access-list we use inverse mask. so if it's /24 our statement would be something like this
access-list 1 permit 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.255 and this would translate to any host ( 0.0.0.0) with a subnet of /24.
But 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255.. correct me if my understanding is correct. this would translate to any host with any subnet mask.
