configuration what would have as a network address as
apposed to a host address. An explanation of why it works that way
is a bit complicated, and an understanding of binary helps. A good
rule to keep in mind is that if you binary AND a host address with
the netmask, you get the network address.


PS - Interesting thought - what would a netmask of
give you? All the odd or even addresses between x.x.x.1 and
x.x.x.255, depending on the network address?
