hi,

the nature of our work in the office is that a customer would give us their IP Address and then we will forward it to other company for authentication.

now, one customer gave us an IP address of (***.***.**.0/24)
now we dont know what IP's to forward.

(i used * to hide the real IP ADDRESS.bec that is confidential)
what does that 0/24 mean?
i mean, what IP address now would we forward?
should we just forward this address?


Thanks for the help.

This looks like a subnet route.

Maybe you should ask the customer for an ipconfig/all from the host to establish the actual clients addresses to be forwarded from the network.

Thanks for the help. yup, its a subnet route.
im not so familiar with subnetting thats why im so confused.
ahm, when you said host. does that mean server?
we would ask the customer to type in ipconfig/all in their server?
im sorry im not so good at this, so please understand if my questions sound stupid.
thanks again for the response.:)

Hello, host does not mean server, host is any machine connected to the network. let say that you have 20 Machines on your office and and they are connected to the network. you can say that you have 20 hosts.

wow, thanks for that helpful information.:) we thought that the ip address (***.**.**.0/24) is a range of ip addresses from 0-24 but then the customer said that its not and it consists of thousands of ip addresses. . Are we wrong in declaring 0/24 as a range of ip address
***.**.**.0
***.**.**.1
***.**.**.2
.

.
.
***.**.**.24

?
