Questions & Answers

Q: What is the purpose of subnet masks in IPv4 addressing?

Subnet masks are used to determine the network and host portions of an IP address, allowing for identification of devices within a network. They provide information about who is in the network.

Q: How are IPv4 addresses classified into different classes?

IPv4 addresses are classified into different classes (A, B, C, D, and E) based on the range of values in the first octet. Each class has a different network and host portion configuration.

Q: How does a subnet mask define the network and host portions of an IP address?

A subnet mask provides information on where to look for the network and host portions within an IP address. It does not carry the actual network or host portion, but guides in determining them.

Q: Can devices with IP addresses from different networks communicate directly with each other?

No, devices with IP addresses from different networks cannot communicate directly without the help of a router. Switches can only facilitate communication within the same network.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • There are five classes of IPv4 addresses: A, B, C, D, and E, each with different network and host portion configurations.

  • Subnet masks are used to determine the network and host portions of an IP address, allowing for identification of devices within a network.

  • IP addresses within the same network share the same network portion, while those in different networks have different network portions.
