What is the binary number 00001010 11110000 10101010 01000000 in dotted decimal notation?
Are the IPv4 addresses and on the same subnet? Both have a subnet mask of
The subnet mask specifies that the final octet holds the host address. Therefore the first three octets hold the subnet's network address. In both cases, this is, so the computers are on the same subnet.
Is a valid IPv4 address on the subnet?
No. The /25 subnet mask specifies 25 ones and therefore 32 - 25 = 7 zeros. Zeros denote host address. Therefore, the host address is from 0000001 to 1111110 binary (0000000 is the network address and 111111 the broadcast address). In
decimal, this is 1 to 126. So the valid IPv4 addresses on the network are to is not in this range and therefore is not valid on this subnet. It is an address on another subnet (for example,
