Re: How do you break up a B class number?

This subnetting stuff can lead to bizzare situations that may sound
ok, but give some of the "semi-invisible glue" parts (like gateways,
routers, bridges) horrendous headaches. Example: you want a lot
of subnets, but you also want One Big One because you have a ton
of hosts on "one cable". There is nothing that says you
cannot have more than one entwork number on the same "cable"! So break
the 16 bits up into 256 nets of 256 hosts and assign 4 of the to the
main cable. It's legal , but wil it work!?
