Extending IP Addresses
We will now go through a simple three-step process for efficiently calcu-
lating the IP address ranges to be assigned to each segment. We say "effi-
ciently," because we will be using the minimum number of IP addresses
required to accomplish our goal.
Create a table detailing the segments and the number of hosts required
on each segment, as shown in Table 3.6.
Determine the subnet mask required to support the requirements
defined in step 1, and expand the table to list the subnet masks.
