```Examining IP Addressing
By: E.J Gallagher, MCSE
Let’s try this again!
And this time I’ll try to maintain a
coherent train of thought!
Bit
Short for binary digit, the smallest unit of information
on a machine. A single bit can hold only one of two
values: 0 or 1. More meaningful information is obtained
by combining consecutive bits into larger units. For
example, a byte is composed of 8 consecutive bits.
Byte
More Basics
Abbreviation for binary term, a unit of storage
capable of holding a single character. On almost
all modern computers, a byte is equal to 8 bits.
Large amounts of memory are indicated in
terms of kilobytes (1,024 bytes), megabytes
(1,048,576 bytes), and gigabytes
(1,073,741,824 bytes). A disk that can hold
1.44 megabytes, for example, is capable of
storing approximately 1.4 million characters, or

Consists of four sets of numbers called Octets or
Bytes, separated by dots (or periods).
This is referred to as Dotted Decimal Notation.
That same IP Address can also be
represented in Binary Notation.
Where each Bit in an octet is represented by either a 0 or a 1

Binary
In either notation, there are still 4 octets separated by dots
that make up the IP Address.
In Binary Notation:
Each octet consists of 8 bits. And each bit within
an octet (or byte) has a corresponding value.

An IP Address is used to
Determine the Network ID
Determine the Host ID
But How?
We use a subnet mask to
determine which octets (or bits) in
Network ID and which octets (or
bits) represent the Host ID.

dots.

Dotted Decimal or Binary Notation.
But must consist of contiguous 1’s on

There are 2 kinds of Subnet
Default Subnet Masks are used in Classfull
networks that have not been subnetted.
Bits used for Network ID are confined by octet
boundaries.

Custom Subnet Masks are used to
subdivide networks into smaller subnets.
Network ID borrows two or more Host bits to extend
the number possible networks (subnets).

So now let’s look at
Is a method of assigning IP Addresses (or
portions of the IP Address Space) to organizations
based on the number of Internet connected hosts
that a given organization needs to support.
Classfull IP addressing is based on 3 assignable
classes of network IDs, each class having a specific
number of network IDs, and an associated number
of Hosts per network.
How big is it?
And how to we distribute it?
InterNIC
Internet Network Information Center
Decided that an address space comprised of 32 bits
would be sufficient to handle all potential networks and
hosts that would ever be connected to the internet.
232 equals 4.3 billion different addresses.
Devised a method using address classes that allowed
for an appropriate allocation of the available address
space based on the number of hosts an organization
needed to support. Classes A,B,C,D,E were defined,
with classes D and E reserved for special use.
We use those 32 bits to denote an IP address
in either Binary or Decimal notation.
The IP address space is divided into 5 classes. But only
3 classes are used to assign IP addresses. Each class
contains a specific number of Network Ids and Host Ids,
and each class has a specific range of values for the
first octet.

When we know the class of the network, then we can
determine which octets in the IP address represent the
Network ID, and which octets represent the Host ID.
Class A uses the first octet to indicate the Network ID
Class B uses the first two octets for the Network ID
Class C uses the first three octets for the Network ID
The remaining octets represent the Host ID.

“Oh no… here comes the math part!”
Lets look at how these
numbers are arrived at.
Range of values in the first octet.
Number of networks available in a class.
Number of Hosts available per network.
Where the range of values in the first
octet came from…
The range of values in the first octet is determined by
how the high order bits are set for each class.
High order bits are any number of leftmost bits in an octet.
These settings were defined by InterNIC to establish
the different network classes.
0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1
1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1
High order bits
In a class A network ID the high order
bit in the first octet is always set to 0.
In a class B network ID the high order
bits in the first octet are always set to
10.
In a class C network ID the high order
bits in the first octet are always set to
110.
Keep in mind, these are Bits, and bits have values…
So, for a class A network ID….
…if the high order bit in the first octet is 0 then the
possible range of values in the first octet is:
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 = Decimal 1 (Min.value)
0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 = Decimal 127 (Max. value)
But remember the 127 address is reserved for the
loopback function.
So… the range of valid network addresses for Class A
is 1 thru 126.
This is the only range of values possible when the high
order bit is set to 0.
for a class B network ID….
…if the high order bits in the first octet are set to 10
then the possible range of values in the first octet is:
1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 = Decimal 128 (Min.value)
1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 = Decimal 191 (Max. value)
So… the range of valid network addresses in the first
octet for Class B is 128 thru 191.
This is the only range of values possible when the high
order bits are set to 10.
for a class C network ID….
…if the high order bits in the first octet are set to 110
then the possible range of values in the first octet is:
1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 = Decimal 192 (Min.value)
1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 = Decimal 223 (Max. value)
So… the range of valid network addresses in the first
octet for Class C is 192 thru 223.
This is the only range of values possible when the high
order bits are set to 110.
Yeah, but…
where do these numbers come from?

How the number of networks
available in each class is determined.
Class A Network:
Uses only the first octet to represent the network ID
using only 8 bits.
If the high order bit is set to 0 then there are only 7
remaining bits to use for network IDs.
2(Remaining bits)=Number of Networks
7
2 =128 possible network Ids
But 127 is reserved, and a network ID can’t
be all 0s, so there are 126 available
Network Ids in a class A space.
How the number of networks
available in each class is determined.
Class B Network:
Uses the first two octets to represent the network ID
using 16 bits.
If the high order bits are set to 10 then there are
only 14 remaining bits to use for network IDs.
2(Remaining bits)=Number of Networks

How the number of networks

Class C Network:

only 21 remaining bits to use for network IDs.

How the number of Hosts per
network is determined for each class.
Class A
Uses one octet for the network ID, and three octets for
the host ID, meaning 24 bits are used for the Host ID.
2(Host bits)-2=Hosts per network
224-2=16,777,214 Hosts per network
or all 0s (represents a network ID).
How the number of Hosts per
network is determined for each class.
Class B
Uses two octets for the network ID, and two octets for
the host ID, meaning 16 bits are used for the Host ID.
2(Host bits)-2=Hosts per network
216-2=65,534 Hosts per network
or all 0s (represents a network ID).
How the number of Hosts per
network is determined for each class.
Class C
Uses three octets for the network ID, and one octet for
the host ID, meaning 8 bits are used for the Host ID.
2(Host bits)-2=Hosts per network

Is determined by the values of the

2(Remaining bits)=Number of Networks
Number of Hosts available per network.

Determining Network and Host Ids
…all for a single network segment, no subnets or
routers.
Now let’s look at……….
Subnetting
Subnetting is the process of subdividing an
already existing network ID into multiple
smaller network IDs.
Remember we said that...
major categories.
Each category supports a predetermined number of
networks and hosts.
The number of network and host Ids available is a
function of the number of bits available to each

11111111.00000000.00000000.00000000
In order to subdivide a
network (create subnets)…
We need to borrow bits from the Host
portion, and loan them to the Network
This produces additional network Ids but
reduces the number of hosts available.
To do this we need to define a Custom
Subnet Mask which indicates how many bits
are used for the network ID.

When using a custom subnet mask, it is no longer

Subnetting Benefits
What do we gain by subnetting a
network?
Subnetting
Allows networks that use different
Increases the effective bandwidth of
traffic.
Allows physically isolated networks to
communicate with each other. (WAN)
5 steps in subnetting a network:
Determine number of network Ids required.
(Plan for growth)
Determine number of hosts per subnet
required. (Plan for growth)
Define a subnet mask that will support the
network and host Ids required.
Define the network or subnet Ids to be used.
Define each of the host Ids to be used on
each subnet.
But to do that requires a
whole lot of math!
Yeah, it is, but check this out….
Limitations of Classful IP
Permits very few variations in network sizes.

2000 hosts req’d Class B= 65,534 hosts
Filling up of router tables



2000 hosts req’d Use 8 class Cs
8 x 254 = 2032
Eight routes on internet routers
Eventual depletion of all IP adresses

If Classful Addressing was still used
CIDR
Classless Inter-Domain Routing
A newer method for assigning network
Ids to an organization.
Allows for organizations to obtain IP
addresses in numbers much closer to
what they actually require.
CIDR
Classless Inter-Domain Routing
Developed for breaking up networks
into a larger variety of sizes.
Uses binary notation rather than
decimal notation.
Uses CIDR (or Network Prefix) notation.
Allows greater flexibility in creating
CIDR
CIDR notation involves specifying a
dotted decimal notation with a bit
10 . 217 . 123 . 7 /20
The bit mask represents the number
of bits in the subnet mask used for
the network ID.

Windows 2000 does not accept CIDR
notation.
In Windows 2000 you must type the
decimal notation.

Supernetting
Supernetting is a strategy that
classful environment into a single
environment.
CIDR combines multiple classful
network Ids into a single CIDR network
ID.
Uses 3 classes with fixed octets to
represent the network ID.
Not restricted by classes, can use any
number of contiguous bits to represent
the network ID. Wider range of
assignable network Ids.
