Broadcast Address

Is it possible to have (2) broadcast addresses on (1) Subnet. If so, How? If not Why?

Re: Broadcast Address

Hello,

you can only have 1 broadcast address per subnet, since there can only be 1 all-ones address on a subnet. Take for example network 172.16.0.0/16, here the broadcast address is 172.16.255.255, which is the all-ones address.

Just out of curiosity, why would you want to have two broadcast addresses ?

Regards,

Georg
