Re: class c networks

Is this hosts or networks ?

Re: class c networks

networks.

hosts 2^8-2 per network

What are you asking about? Is it a theoretical question "how many class C networks are there in IPv4" or you need to split your class C network into smaller subnets?

You should buy a book. I recomend this one

because subnets worth nothing without routing

Re: class c networks

In reply to your actual question, if you give the class C a 255.255.255.255 mask you have a host specific address. You can do this 256 times but you wouldn't be able to use .0 or .255 so you get 254 usable "subnets".

Of course these subnets are only usable as loopback addresses, but you can do it!

The practical answer is 64 subnets of 4 addresses each - with the usual restrictions on first and last addresses.
